Protecting yourself from dangers that you can’t see, on the other hand, is a little trickier. For one, there are a lot of things people can’t see that can cause real danger – pathogenic microorganisms, particulate pollutants, and toxic chemicals. Fortunately, there is a comprehensive body of knowledge that identifies the risk factors for most of these unseen dangers, as well as individual treatment and preventive measures.
Of these “unseen” dangers, however, radio frequency (RF) radiation from mobile phones is, by far, the most controversial. A scientific review from the National Toxicology Program of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has concluded that there is “clear evidence” that RF radiation from mobile phones could lead to cancer – despite its lack of coverage in mainstream media outlets.
So, in terms of dying because I ate something pleasant tasting, as opposed to slamming down a forest of kale every day like a simpleton, I will take the risk and care not
I cannot afford to retire, and its unlikely that anyone in my generation, or the one after that, or the one after that will be able to afford to retire either, unless they find one of those non-jobs that you only get if you attend the right college.
But I do object to being wiped out because someone did not do their due diligence in protecting the user from a piece of technology. Its a phone, its designed to be carried on the body and placed near ones head in order to perform its primary function. It should not emit something dangerous into the body, given the necessities of proximity in order to permit its use.
I don't think idiot apes would know the difference though, which is what sets people that love cow apart from people who prefer kale.
