    all the studies I've seen are inconclusive... They cannot link cellphones to causing cancer. From a strictly scientific standpoint, you receiver a higher dose of radiation from having the phone on a belt clip or in your pocket than you do having it near your head.

    The numbers are so minimal that it's mostly insignificant. No one should tell you talking on a cell phone is bad, unless you have it glued to your ear :hsugh:

    I really do think there are an excess of people talking on their cell phones these days. I'm 15 and I bought one because I had a surplus of money and I needed to be able to get ahold of my parents and friends for rides, but I see 6th graders with them :mamoru:
