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.

I wake up in the morning to hear the birds chirping. I smile and get up to go down stairs. I hear a DING go off on my computer, meaning I had a new message. It was from my friend Terry. I open it. It said "Hi! Happy Saturday!". I smile as I reply "Yaayyy! It's Saturday!". I close my computer and run downstairs. I eat my granola bar as I see I have a new comment on my photo on Clickstowl. "Hahaha, dog face and long nose" it said. I roll my eyes as I shut it down and sigh. I reply "hah at least we look better." I take a walk outside as I see the streets busiling as always. I see some snickering at me as I sit down on a bench. I look at Clickstowl and see that I had an edited photo. It was me, but my face was replaced with a dog face. I see the comments and she's a tear. I knew in a few days everyone would forget about it. I was sure. MONDAY, 2016: I walk along the halls as everyone laughs at me and mimicked a dog as they looked at me. (TO BE CONTINUED)
