It's time for lead underpants....

...Now some "Research" has determined that your mobile phone knackers your Knackers so to speak.
The most helpful advice was to start a family as soon as possible before they drop off and roll under the sofa.

There are some people around here where that would not be such a bad thing, pity it is not true, well I hope not anyway.

...unfortunately the article is true, whether the information stands up is another matter.

I think you're supposed to use the phone next to your ear, not between your legs.

Yet another piece of panic nonsense from, no doubt, a lower class, red top "newspaper" to go alongside fries your eyeballs, sends you deaf, addles the brain etc.

I can believe the last one, though. Never in the history of civilisation has so much pointless twaddle been uttered so often than when using these things.

Some people use a `hands free` kit (bluetooth headset or wired headset and mic) and leave the `phone in their trousers pocket.

Mobiles do transmit and are quite powerful so if you feel totally confident.......

If not it`s up to the individual to be cautious and/or limit the amount of time they spend microwaving themselves.

The article also states that it unlikely that the phone caused the problem but rather being sedentary is the cause.

Might I suggest that those people who use their mobile to call everyone could put their mobile down and rise up on their hind legs and WALK the length of the office or even to the next desk and then hold their converstion face to face.

This may also reduce the noise level in the office as most mobile users seem to think that they have to talk loudly when using a mobile as the person they are talking to is some distance from them.

Just wait until XMax comes along, I reckon we will all glow in the dark then, sort of XMax lights.

  Hertz Van Rentyl 16:04 24 Oct 2006

If Xmax really works then a couple of Duracell AAs, could power vast areas of transmission. Dont know what would happen when the thousands of antenna mop it all up though. Be an end to all these nasty microwaves but low frequency waves have problems too.

" Never in the history of civilisation has so much pointless twaddle been uttered so often than when using these things."

Oh how true but we all do it I suppose!
