    The largest study yet performed by a peer review board of public scientific research indicates that there is "no clear evidence" that cell phone radiation is harmful to public health. This report, which was just published by the Health Protection Agency's independent advisory group on non-ionising radiation (AGNIR), was a collection of other reports and scientific studies accumulated since 2003. The review board said it was "important" to watch for signs of rising cancer cases, which included monitoring national brain tumor trends. According to their findings so far, there is "no indication" of increased risk.

    They did indicate that there have been subtle and tiny changes detected in low frequency brain waves with cell phone usage, but, at this time, it's unclear if they had any effect, and overall the no-harm evidence is more overwhelming now. Here's a quote with some more details,"There are still limitations to the published research that preclude a definitive judgement, but the evidence overall has not demonstrated any adverse effects on human health from exposure to radiofrequency fields below internationally accepted guideline levels," said Professor Anthony Swerdlow, chairman of AGNIR and an epidemiologist at the Institute of Cancer Research."

    And, here's a quote with a final summation,

    While this won't convince my dad to abandon cellphones with antennas (because apparently the antennas redirect the radiation away from your head), it does come as welcome news, and a relief to phone addicts everywhere.

    Now the next triumph will be doing enough research to convince the FAA to stop making us turn off our phones on the airplane. At least let us use mobile data for pete's sake!

    Turning your phone off on the plane has to do with preventing you from tracking and relaying real time position data to other people off of the plane. The "interference" that they claim is a sham and just what they tell people. Airplane wiring is very well shielded and phones have no effect on it.
