Probably not: Although we don't know with 100% certainty, in my opinion there is no evidence it is harmful.

It's not: This isn't the wavelength that damages molecules. The studies that purport to show danger are obvious junk science -- retrospective work. In the biggest one, the tumors were more common on the opposite side from the phone. Other junk cancer scares proved to be secretly funded by tobacco companies and i wouldn't be surprised if this was what's happening here. Enjoy your technology.
