No: Radiation produced by cell phones isn't the kind that damages tissue. These fears are kept alive by people seeking to profit from frightening people, and from venal politicians. The biggest study showed 10% more brain tumors on the side of the head OPPOSITE to the cell phone. None of the scientists or physicians I work with are at all afraid of cell phones, and neither is Putin, who'd surely know.

No: This is coming from politicians (including, unfortunately, some misguided souls at the World Health Organization) and fearmongers. Do you think that Mr. Putin, who arguably would be the man most certain to have accurate information about the worst the world has to offer, would use a cell phone if they actually caused cancer?
