    Looks like our beloved Droid puts out a good amount of radiation. It's at the mid-top level of radiation output for smart phones. Check out the study and decide for yourself. I use the speaker function about 90% of the time, which turns out to be a much safer way to go.

    First who is this "Environmental Working Group?" Do they have an agenda?

    Nobody knows for certain if there is any type of damage caused by cell phones. I'll believe it when the Surgeon General announces it.

    So many that have much more radiation leakage, I feel somewhat safer with the Droid. :(
    The phones too heavy to hold to my head for long periods anyway, so I just got my first ever bluetooth headset and love it.

    Can I use one on my droid too? Then we will both be safe. :)

    Foil hats aside, here are some facts on cell phone radiation:


    The most recent assessment was published in 2007 by the European Commission Scientific Committee on Emerging and Newly Identified Health Risks (SCENIHR). It concludes from the available research that no significant health effect has been demonstrated from mobile phone radiation at normal exposure levels:
    • Normal exposure to mobile phone radiation cannot cause headaches or dizziness, nor can it cause brain cancers, neurological effects or reproductive effects.
    • A few inconclusive studies suggest that it may cause a benign tumour of the auditory nerve.
    • However, more studies concerning potential health effects on children are needed.
    In 2006 a large Danish study about the connection between mobile phone use and cancer incidence was published. It followed over 420,000 Danish citizens for 20 years and showed no increased risk of cancer

    welcome to the real world...
    where what you eat, breathe, and use on a day to day basis seems to have a goal of killing you prematurely.

    and you wonder why we are a cursed generation? we came about 30 years too soon...all of us. it is unfortunate. :)

    Well apparently now CO2 is also a dangerous chemical to be regulated, so stop breathing as well ....

    A recent study I read showed that a living person has a 100% of dying at some point in their life. :icon_eek:

    I work in the nuclear industry, trust me, cell phones are not something to worry about. Not to mention the levels of radiation you receive from common things like granite counter tops, bananas, TVs, computers, etc...imagine all the microwaves and various radio waves already in the air, regardless if you have a phone.
    The average person receives almost as much radiation as I do, and that's counting the dose I get within a nuclear power plant.
