“Mobile phones 'alter human DNA'

Radio waves from mobile phones do harm body cells and damage DNA, a laboratory study has shown.
But the European Union-funded Reflex research did not prove such changes were a risk to human health. “

Is there something a contradiction here?

John,

Ever listen to the comedian, Lewis Black?

This thread reminds me of a standup he did when he was talking about bacon causing cancer, then it doesn't, then it does...

"it's breakfast and I gotta eat!"  

listen to him sometime (language alert)

Maybe it's just 'cause I find people who walk through life with a cellphone glued to their ear particularly annoying, but I have to wonder if their DNA wasn't already corrupt.

Of course not, they didn't check the Phhoenix freeway drivers!

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

LOL, cellphones everywhere these days, and I wonder what's going to happen on planes, the ONE PLACE I could be without being subjected to every starnger's life crises.
*sigh* my cell phone is for emergencies only, and I like it that way, all those blah blah blah conversations can always wait for face-to-face (where I can still doze if need be LOL)
