    Salford et al. document serious neuronal damage in rat brains following exposure to microwave radiation from a cell phone, at levels comparable to what people would experience during normal use. Damage to nerve cells was observed in several places within the brain, including the cortex, hippocampus and basal ganglia.
    It was associated with evidence of leakage of proteins through the blood-brain barrier. The authors express concern that "after some decades of (often) daily use, a whole generation of [cell phone] users may suffer negative effects, perhaps as early as middle age."


    In a companion news story in the issue of Environmental Health Perspectives in which the research is published, the journal comments: "It might be time to get serious about using your headset when talking on your mobile phone and encouraging your family members to do the same."

    Cripes... I don't use one so I rarely pay attention to news about them, but didn't they say they caused brain problems a long time ago? I thought that since they are contiued to be used that meant they fixed the problems.... Wow that's scary! A whole generation of people with brain damage? I hope they figure this out quick!

    More info!!!!

    Mobile phones and the new wireless technology could cause a "whole generation" of today's teenagers to go senile in the prime of their lives, new research suggests

    The study - which warns specifically against "the intense use of mobile phones by youngsters" - comes as research on their health effects is being scaled down, due to industry pressure. It is likely to galvanise concern about the almost universal exposure to microwaves in Western countries, by revealing a new way in which they may seriously damage health.

    Starting with deuce!!!!! :D :D
