    Cell Phone Radiation - Hype?


    The collection of articles here on cell phone radiation is very interesting
    and useful. This is a very important issue as users and developers plunge
    full into this new tech arena. I urge folks to read all of these articles.
    This is not a trivial consideration.

    I am very unreassured at the guidence offered by IEEE in establishing minimal
    levels of cell phone radiation. IEEE is a group of professional industry
    engineers, not scientists. They are not qualified to undertake biometrics
    and assess biological risks of radiation exposure.

    The article, "Einstein, Your Cell Phone and You" is a good case in point.
    The author focuses solely on photon wave activity in the abstract. There
    is no reference to biological systems nor to the dynamics of a cell phone
    - body system. It's a great intellectual exercise in nothingness.

    The one article offered here that seriously discusses the scientific evidence
    and concerns ("Cell Phone Convenience or 21st Century Plague?") is, in fact,
    quite alarming. It's clear that a lot of further research is needed and
    just as clear that there are serious indications of a radiation problem here.
    The article is a very good depature point for further serious investigation
    into this question.

    Although I'm a computer professional, my undergraduate and graduate studies
    were in evolutionary biology. In particular, I studied 600 million years
    of organic evolution and genetics. The very origin of life on this planet
    was, in fact, due to the action of low-level ultraviolet radiation on prebiotic
    molecules in the sea. Radiation at any level is not a trivial or inconsequential
    matter.

    I urge DevX folks to consider this matter carefully and seriously. You will
    be using and developing for these products and you will probably have maximum
    exposure to them. It would be nice to think everything is hunky-dory, as
    the vendors would like us to think, but if it ain't, the problem will be
    yours, not IEEE's.

    Thanks to Jeromy Hill for providing the material for discussion.

    Well, I am interested in this topic.

    I guess we'll find out sooner or later how harmful these things really are.

    I have a feeling my lack of exercise is far worse.
