  6. Jafafa Hots says:

    Cell phones ARE cancer.

  7. Professional (Subterranean Basketweaver) says:

    Well technically nothing 'causes' cancer.

    However, hundreds of studies have been done to prove that cellphones DO in fact increase the risk for cancer.

    So much so that the UK at one point prevented Disney from selling the cell phones that Disney was marketing to children. (As at the time, there was a study which was done to show that cell phones increase the risk for cancer in children by 8 times more than adults).

    Again, there are dozens of studies that show this… rather silly to dismiss evidence.

  8. Natasha Taylor says:

    Let's not forget that the smallest dose of radiation that they exposed the rats to was 1.5 W/kg; that's a ludicrous amount of power (comparable to the amount you get from food), and not at all remotely similar to the dose you'll get from a mobile.

    why dont feminist belong in japan?
    Japan hunts whales.

  11. OtherGonzo says:

    Reminds me of a study years ago that showed that of people with brain tumors 50% of them were on the side they used their cell phone on.
    When I mentioned this to people who thought cell phones caused tumors they thought this added to their argument.

  12. LegoDaleks says:

    Have you thought about being more conscious in your choice of photos for your video thumbnails? Maybe taking the extra time to find photos with less conventional looking models in them?

  16. Daniel Reynolds says:

    I'm honestly not happy with what you're doing here. I mean, at this rate you're going to debunk all the sensationalist article headlines on news sites and less people will fall for them. Then how are all these companies supposed to get clicks from scared users?

    Think of the news companies will ya. They are the real victims in all this.
