“Hot heads!”

published 03/10/2000

I think that no where near enough research has been done to draw valid conclusions. As a scientist, you need some pretty conclusive proof one way or the other, and from what I...

The question of mobile phone safety is going to continue for a long time yet, mainly because no-one knows whether there is a health risk associated with them, or whether they are perfectly safe to use. We have come a long way down the road as to studies into mobile phone safety, and yet most...

A few months ago the media was full of scare stories of mobile phone radiation and cancer scares. More recently the government has tried to draft new guide lines which prevent base stations being erected near schools, and for schools to ask mobile phone companies to ensure the 'beam of greatest...

I have to say I am very worried about cellular radiation. There is not enough information around about it and it seems that the government isn't working hard enough to find out about it. Until they know exactly what it does to you they should not be putting up any more masts. I have a mobile...

It seems amazing that despite the large worry of radiation from mobile phones a few months ago that the problem seems to be swept under the carpet - the phone companies have done a very good job of this. People also seem to have forgotten. The companies have told us that there is no proof but...

Once upon a time people said cigarettes were safe. And DDT. Heck - they even said it was safe to hang out in the vicinity of an A bomb test! Now they reckon that mobile phones are safe. Well, probably safe. Well, they haven't proved them unsafe. And we, the gullible consumer say 'oh! that's...
