wake up call

"If you own a mobile phone, you must see this.  For years, the experts have been arguing over them.  Some say they're perfectly safe, others claim they fry your brains.  Well, an international team of doctors, including two of Australia's finest surgeons, have just released their latest, comprehensive research.  And, as the father of young children, it really made Liam Bartlett sit up and take notice. They say prolonged use of mobile phones could double the risk of malignant brain tumours.  The deadliest of all cancers, the kind that leaves no survivors.  With an entire generation now growing up hooked on their mobiles, that could be absolutely devastating." 

Rat brain before and after phone exposure.

Personally, even holding a mobile at arm's length, I can feel the blast into my head, I keep mine for occasional texting, I can't imagine we going to rely on these particular technologies long term!
