I read about how cell phone use messes with the membrane between your brain and skull.

Snipp: Nerve cell damage in mammalian brain after exposure to microwaves from GSM mobile phones and one exposure = brain damage to lab rat..

But this video really makes you wonder what can happen with exposure. If it can pop corn, what does you brain endure?

very interesting video
my mate just had a brain tumor removed, hes 30. used his mobile a lot....
wi-fi, kids with mobiles, sureley they cant be that dangerous? they are!!!
the radiation from wi-fi is 3x greater that from mobile phones

BBC programme Panorama found that radiation levels from wi-fi in one school was up to three times the level of mobile phone mast radiation.

the bbc have played down the claims from that programme (typical)

judge for youself

Yeah, ever see the movie Iron Man ? Where The Dude (as Ironmonger) uses a cell phone to paralyze everyone? It was so obvious.

Hey guys just dong my part,
long term affects have never been proven that cell phones can lead to brain damage...ever. Yes experiment have been done with microwave radiation in much higher levels than in cell phones. And yes short term damage is proven like, continuouscell phone usage can cause proteins to leak across the blood brain barrier which could lead to early senility. But the brain being the wonderous organ that it is can most times easily repair the damge by justr not using a cell phone!!
just a little more info if this makes people a little mad. cell phones use a very low rF energy(less than 1 watt) to low to cause damage, the energy emitted is non-ionizing( meaning it does not cause damage to chemical bonds or DNA), and if theres any concern for the phone now going digital, they use even less power (about 0.6 watts). Many experts say that no matter how near the cell phone's antenna, even if it's right up against the skull, the six-tenths of a watt (typically) of power emitted couldn't possibly affect human health. now heres the other side. Some mobile phone users have been diagnosed with brain cancer, and many others who have not used mobile phones have gotten the disease, too. Each year in the United States, brain cancer occurs at a rate of about six new cases per 100,000 people. Among the 100 million Americans who own mobile phones, then, about 6,000 cases of brain cancer would be expected among them in a year, even if they had not used mobile phones. Two types of studies are generally used to investigate suspected cancer causes: epidemiological studies, which look at the incidence of a disease in certain groups of people, and animal studies. the epidemiological studies in humans has been very hard to do since studying brain cancer takes alot of time and the cell phone world is constantly changing. BUt animal studies are easier and quicker, but how can we justify tests that are done on rats and mice to sday that it is dangerous in humans, when the rats and mice are a completely different species, which different types of radiation have different effects. Specifically, FDA will identify the scientific questions that merit attention, propose research to address those questions, review study proposals from those interested in doing the research, make recommendations on the selection of researchers, and oversee the development of study design. Once research is begun, FDA will review the progress of ongoing studies, review the results of completed studies, and issue a report to the CTIA.
