I have been reading articles about how microwaves give you radiation/cancer. Same with cell phones. Does anyone know of other electronics that give off radiation or can give you cancer???

Well - light bulb gives off radiation. In form of light (electromagnetic radiation) . There are a several types of radiation, since it means capability to produce energy by something and this energy capability to travel through distance (empty or through medium) and be absorbed by something else.
Microwaves/cell phones emit electromagnetic radiation ,and the frequency range is suspected to cause harm in people. There is probably certain truth in it,but it is very hard to reach a conclusion. Radars that work in higher frequency range are causing harm to people.
But to find out what does, and what does not - very hard.
Here is a list that might help you:

By the way, there is also ionizing radiation - the "nuclear" stuff.

surprising new report released in February by physicists at Britain's University of Bristol shows that power lines attract particles of radon -- a colorless, odorless gas irrefutably linked with cancer. so you dont even have to be pluged in just live near those power lines

I think every electronic appliance gives off radiation. Some less than others.

Yeah, everything.
Hence the invention of the tin-foil hat.
