Are Cell Phones the New Cigarettes?

Here is an  interesting article in the NY Times (the link is posted below for the full article)

Maureen Dowd from the NY Times talks about if cell phones could be the next cigarettes.

A couple of the interesting paragraphs from the article worth noting are:

“San Francisco just became the first city in the country to pass legislation making cellphone retailers display radiation levels. The city’s Board of Supervisors voted 10 to 1 in favor. The one against, the Democrat Sean Elsbernd, said afterward: “It’s a slippery slope. I can go on Google right now and find you a study that says there’s a problem with the Starbucks you’re drinking.”

Maybe he has a point about Starbucks 🙂

In her article she also wrote about a study that was disturbing but showed that information is still controversial of the actual effects.

“One Swedish study that followed young people who began using cells as teenagers for 10 years calculated a 400 percent increase in brain tumors. But as Nathaniel Rich recently pointed out in Harper’s, studies about cellphones’ carcinogenic potential all contradict one another, including those involving children. ”

Food for thought

have a healthy day,
