Between a Rock and a Hard Place

Do we know whether the long-term, extensive, use of cell phones could affect our health? Are our safety limits reliable? I am skeptical.

In spite of the omnipresence of these gadgets, our knowledge about the effects of the emitted by them radiation on people is not based on satisfactory science. I think that the currently in place safety limits are not sufficiently supported by the available knowledge. So, let’s explore the controversial and limited science dealing with the biological and health effects of cell phone radiation.

The size matters but “the devil is in the details”.
