The question regarding cellphone safety is an ongoing affair in some quarters. Some schools have now discontinued using radio masts ( a good extra revenue and funding gatherer) on their property, due to confusing expert reports.

Most police forces have a new telecommunications network, and in some quarters there are doubts about the possible medical side effects. I know my own local police force have had questions asked, when two police officers died through cancer related illnesses, and the use of mobile close contact communications equipment.

cautions mobile phone users should not to let a lack of evidence stop them from taking immediate action."

"We shouldn't wait for a definitive study to come out, but err on the side of being safe rather than sorry later,"

Ah, I see.... so no evidence,and no definitive study, despite years and years of scientific investigations, but we should all pay heed to what this man says, just because he's a cancer doctor......who bases his warnings on absolutely no evidence.

In August 2000 I bought a Philips Savvy mobile phone for emergency purposes, which I used for some four years - the manual contains the warning in the Security Precautions section to:

"Avoid touching the antenna while a call is in progress.

"Do not use your phone if the antenna is damaged (risk of minor skin burn)."

Somewhat worrying, although I did only use it for emergency purposes.

Other recommendations include avoiding mobile phone use in public, "where you can passively expose others to your phone's electromagnetic fields."

Dear god,the mans a pillock.
