The Definitive Word on the Matter?

SAN FRANCISCO - JULY 24: Sal Mora talks on his...
Do cell phones cause cancer? “My random browsing of the October issue of Scientific American brought me to this nice summary graphic offered by physicist Bernard Leikind of his article in Skeptic magazine Vol. 15, no. 4 (2010). Utterly basic physical principles show that cell phones (or microwave ovens) could not cause cancer, the energy content of their emitted radiations is orders of magnitude below that required to rupture chemical bonds.” (via Deric Bownds’ MindBlog)

    No, that isn’t the definitive word on the matter, that’s company disinformation.

    The problem has never been about breaking chemical bonds, it’s about the influence of the EM field on biology that depends on it’s own EM field to function properly,

    And if magnetic fields can’t affect your brain, explain this,

    “Stimulating a particular area of the brain, it turns out, can improve numeracy for at least six months.
    In 2007, Roi Cohen Kadosh at the University of Oxford and colleagues pinned down the area of the brain responsible for mathematical ability to the right parietal lobe, just above the right ear.”
