Based off an 18 year study of over a quarter of a million mobile phone users, as well as my own experience in the matter, as well as my own understanding of electromagnetic radiation, I would say yes I do believe that using my mobile phone doesn't affect me.

I wonder, can you explain to me what a radio wave is? Or what a microwave is? Did you even know a microwave IS a type of radio wave? Do you have *any* idea of how this works, or are you just grabbing whatever supporting articles you can find to bolster your position and ignoring contradictory evidence?

What position are you referring to? I have no position. Prove to me no harm is done.

Can you tell me the pre heat, the mid pass heat, and the final pass heat when welding 1% chrome?

I couldn't tell you the pre/mid/final pass heat, that's not my area of expertise. I fail to see its relevance to this topic?

I'll link you directly to the study this whole thread is about: Use of mobile phones and risk of brain tumours: update of Danish cohort study | BMJ
Let me quote the conclusion for you:
Quote:
In this update of a large nationwide cohort study of mobile phone use, there were no increased risks of tumours of the central nervous system, providing little evidence for a causal association
Or is THIS study obviously wrong, and the government study you vaguely referred to obviously right? What more do you need?! Is an 18 year study not long enough?!

Wow! 18 years is several lifetimes. You sound like a Vulcan. I suggested that for every positive report there is a negative report. Go look. Radio waves is not my area of expertise. And I had to look to spell expertise. Just because one is very well educated does not mean they are smart or have common sense. I will take common sense everytime.

ok settle down girls. people always need something to worry about however unfounded, these days radio waves are used for a **** of a lot more than just mobile phone signals and if there were cancer risks they would have found another way or we would know after 25 or so years of using these things for EVERYTHING.

:P lets all relax, have some cake

Common sense should dictate that you shouldn't jump to conclusions, especially with no knowledge on the subject at hand.

But I agree, enough has been said. Cake tiem!
