    Cellphone = harmful?

    I just found a very interesting topic on TV last night........

    As we all know, most people in the world would own one or two cellphones....

    Teens even have separate cellphones for different purposes, and kids as young as 7 and 8 own their very own cellphone.....

    But research said that cellphone could cause cancer through radiation exposure! And the young are more prone to excess radiation than most adults...... so, kids as young as 8 could be getting cancer just from a few years of cellphone use!

    What do you guys think about this? Should cellphones be banned? Removed until further research?

    Please share your thoughts

    I thought that cancer speculation was desmissed as a myth? Anyways just as smoking causes cancer (which is a fact) and has not been banned neither will cellphones, they contribute to much to the economy, and just like smoking, are way to popular to ever have anything done about them.

    Re: Cellphone = harmful?

    I wish I had a cell. Almost every1 I know in school has one, and I hate having to borrow one. There are many times that I need a phone, and only sometimes a friend will be nearby w/ on. Only two of my friends have one, tho. And I WILL NOT allow my kids to have cellphones until they are freshmen in highschool. Not just cuz of the whole radiation thing, but it's kinda like getting a car, or watching pg-13movies: there's a time for everything, and until that time comes, you'll have to wait for certain privilages. But I'm a junior in h.s., and I still don't have a cell or a car! What's the deal w/ that?!!?
    But then you see all these little kids in the malls, or shopping centers, and it's like they're trying to grow up too fast! I see 5-yr-old prima donas wearing make-up and carrying purses and cells, talking like they're from "Clueless", and little punks cussing and flicking off little old ladies! What has our world come to!?!?!?
    Treat me like an angel, and I'll be your little devil.

    Hmm, I think that cellphones aren't harmfull. But allthou I think that we shouldn't
    give cellphones to kids that are younger than 10years.
    When I got my first cellphone I was 14years old, and maybe that was about
    year too early too.

    My physics teacher in high school actually proved to use (using physics of course) why it's not possible to get cancer from cellphones.

    But on a side note: Yes, cellphones are harmful. People act like they can drive while talking on them, and guess what? THEY CAN'T. That's potentially harmful to so many other people.
