Quote from source:
On November 5, 2009, the FCC released their Consumer Facts on "Wireless Devices and Health Concerns." In this document, the FCC recommends precautions for the use of cell phones.

According to the FCC, "Recent reports by some health and safety interest groups have suggested that wireless device use can be linked to cancer and other illnesses. These questions have become more pressing as more and younger people are using the devices, and for longer periods of time."

They now recommend the following steps:
Use an earpiece or headset

If possible, keep wireless devices away from your body when they are on, mainly by not attaching them to belts or carrying them in pockets

Use the cell phone speaker to reduce exposure to your head

Consider texting rather than talking

Buy a wireless device with lower Specific Absorption Rate (SAR)

I thought I would share this because it seems like everyone is on the phone continuously nowadays. Everywhere you look and no matter what you are doing everyone has a phone glued to their ear.

I never worried too much about the side effects because I was never on it for more than a couple minutes a couple times a day, but now that people use it for everything and talk to their friends for hours I would imagine the slight chance of side effects has increased exponentially.

I for one cannot stand hold the phone to my ear for too long (my arms start to hurt) So I purchased a blue tooth head set. I now have a vehicle with hands free so I am out of this demographic but many people still are not.

Important information and good to spread around although today, everything causes cancer.

Any thoughts?
