Cell Phones Cause Cancer - Digital Radiation

When you're blabbing away on your cell phone, did you know that your voice is transmitted from the antenna as radio frequency radiation? In fact, your voice puts out about half as much radiation as a microwave. Too bad we can't cook up a meal simply by talking to it on our cell phone.

It shouldn't come as a surprise that with that much radiation flowing from your phone, there's a good chance it's going to soak into your brain and cause some kind of damage. Cell phone users are at risk for getting rare brain tumors. In fact, studies have found that the rare tumors happen on the same side of the head that people usually use to talk on their cell phones.

Millions of people use their cell phone on a daily basis - America alone has about 123 million cell phone users. Are you one of them? If so, you are putting a high-powered transmitter against your head - about an inch away from your brain. So don't sound so shocked to hear that talking on your cell phone might cause some serious damage.

Do you believe that cell phones really cause brain tumors? Take our poll (top right hand corner) and see what others think. Or, and tell us why you think this story is or isn't correct.

  • This story is made up! Nothing has ever been proven.
  • It's true! Some of the tumors are even the shape of cell phones.

On a "normal" person, Polygraphs have a 70%-90% success rate. Now, the problem is that a lot of people aren't "normal". Some people are naturally anxious or have an anxiety disorder, which can mess up the results. Obese people often tend to sweat more, which will give the sensors bad readings.  So, is it a good tool for finding the truth? In certain circumstances, yes. Is it enough to convict someone of a crime? No.

Definitely not. A person can learn to control their heartbeat and lying skills, so the tests are most definitely NOT a accurate.

Kirsteeeeen said I should post this so yeaOk so some things about my depression are like i found out i had it when i was 10. I might of had it before then but Idk. But like is a good thing i joined kw cause that's how my friend on here like figured out that i have depression and basically made me tell my mom and dad. And like also i kinda wanted to die and stuff and then later i kinda wanted to kill my self. And hurt my self. I kinda did a little bit but like not that much. And so like i had to do this weird therapy that didn't work. And then it kept getting worse and stuff and then like i went to the doctor and got some medicine but like they didn't give me any for almost a year probably until i was closer to 12. But the first one they tried made me like wake up sometimes and basically be really anxious like freaking out so much that i thought i might hurt myself or kinda other people or do things like run away. But it kinda helped the depression during the day and helped me to sleep sometimes better but like also i stopped wanting to do anything. So then i got a different one but it made me dizzy as soon as i tried it basically and so like after 3 days maybe then I spotted. But then i had to wait for them to get out of my system. After that i starred like regular therapy where you talk to the therapist. Like people told me it was bad so i really didn't want to go for a long time, but i went and it was kind of fun i guess like i could say anything and he wouldn't like be mad about me saying it or anything like he didn't judge and stuff. So i did that for a while like 2 or 3 months and i was feeling a lot better from that and some off the things we did. But like since my dad got a new job it has different insurance so i have to switch but we're just waiting to see like if i need to right now
