Telephones and Health: How to get out of a Mobile Phone Contract

I had a cell phone for 5 years. I enjoyed having a communication device that was independent of my location. But then I read about increasing occurrence of brain cancers correlated with cell phone usage---the studies at the time were coming out of Japan. I also got fed up with escalating work calls on my cell. Eventually I traded the mobile for a home land line and a cable internet connection. The cost is about the same. It is because of the home internet connection that I am able to make entries in this online journal. But now I read that my home phone is just as dangerous. Imagine my chargrin.
