Neurosurgeons avoid Cell Phones

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/06/03/health/03well.html?_r=2&adxnnl=1&oref=slogin&partner=rssnyt&emc=rss&adxnnlx=1213909270-opP/M8RsqLT1tFiNFQ/cmQ

It turns out the type of cancer caused by cell phones is a glioma. Glia are the support cells of the CNS. I am definitely cancelling my cell phone contract this August, and switching to a land line.

...yup, that, and the fact that it has no privacy from monitoring, kept me away from them all along...plus who wants to be in demand all the time...? EW!

Smiles....well, there are good things about cell phones.....like being able to find people in a crowd when you're on the move. If you never have one you won't miss it.

I've heard you can get a headset (it's called something similar to that) where you don't have to have the phone at your head in order to talk into it, instead using a wire to it, and you can keep it at your waist or something.

Bluetooth. It is the way to go with cell phones. I usually use speaker mode and just hold my phone in my hand.

Honestly, it's harder to tap a cell phone (uses 128-bit encryption) than a land line. If you are the Feds, however, neither one is an issue to tap.

Thanks. I have tried headsets (all suck so far) and use speakerphone. Haven't done the bluetooth thing yet. What's good about it?
