  1. dear tom. I listen to you all the time. I consider you a credible source for news. (As per your TNT 185) I guess you would call me a nut, because I woud never use a cell phone without a wired headset. There’s lots of solid research (more and more each day) that points to the linkage between cell phone use and brain cancer. And children (with their developing brains) are far are more susceptible to microwave radiation than adults. You should go to for more information. Tobacco companies for years swore to us (and Congress) that cigarettes didn’t cause cancer. Tom, if you do just one thing, please look at the fine print (warning) that every cell phone manufacture (Apple too) includes in their documentation. They tell you not to put you cell phone directly next to your head. Why? Liability issues maybe? Your interpretation of the Brookhaven Labs study was flip. The study concluded that cell phone radiation has an effect on the brain. It is an incontrovertible fact that your cell phone gives a dose of radiation, concentrated in the same area of the brain, over and over and over again, every hour, every day. It’s this cumulative effect that poses the real danger to your health. I tell my friends to use their brain and keep their cell phones away from it. And I hope you take my friendly advice and do the same. best, c mullen
