    As far as I know, cosmic radiation is not radiant energy but high speed particles which hit our atmosphere. Can you clarify, please, or maybe make an episode on cosmic rays?

  11. the brink says:

    World Health Organization classified cell phones as carcinogenic.This statement was made from a team of 31 scientists from 14 countries who made this decision after reviewing the data from previous peer-reviewed studies.

    Does Julia have a sister? I saw this girl in Detroit last weekend at the usav national championships that looked just like her

  13. Edward Bloom says:

    Brain tumors…Probably not. However, within the inner ear, there is a gland that releases toxins to kill bacteria. This is why we get fevers when sick. The increase in heat triggers the gland to release the toxins.

    Cell phones will cause this to trigger when up to the ear longer than 10 minutes. So we are needlessly dumping toxins into our brain. Just get wired headphones with a mic.

    Cell phones have caused tumors in women's breast who kept their cell phones tucked in their bra. The pictures are pretty shocking.

    Another minimal effort from DNews probably getting their info from wikapedia.

    Is there anything my phone can't do? It now even reduces the risk of unwanted pregnancy and protects my brain.

    You know, in all of this, I feel like people forget to appreciate the wonder of mobile phones.
    In this day and age, we can talk to anyone in the world with a radio connection, at any time. That's just fucking amazing to think about. 

    We need
    – Quantum entanglement communication
    – Tachyon Communication
    – Time dilation effect communication

    60 cycle 120 volt wall current gives off radio waves which penetrate to the bottom of the ocean. Cellphone rf is easy to shield from. Wall current should cause cancer.
