Do cellphones actually give you cancer?

<< < (7/16) > >>

SL4P:
If cancer’s what you’re looking for, it would be a lot easier to take up smoking.

Gyro:
It's everyday living that gives you cancer. It is a sneaky predator that only stops stalking you once you're dead.

Some time ago I was searching for references and what I found was radar operators developing cancer. Operators are usually far from the antenna or the microwave transmitter and the cause was insuficient protection from X-rays coming from vacuum tubes.

There was a huge legal settlement in Germany - those radar operators were not aware of the dangers and fixed things in front of the dish while the system was running - on a regular base.
Obviously, there are more than 3000 cases in Germany alone.

TimFox:
This is only an abstract, but it is an early study from 1965 about cataracts (not cancer).

I remember reading elsewhere that occupational cataracts in glassblowers (from infrared radiation out of the furnace) and microwave exposure gave cataract problems on opposite sides of the lenses.
