A recent health scare relates to everyday technology—mobile phones’ potential to cause damage by radiation
A recent health scare relates to everyday technology—mobile phones’ potential to cause damage by radiation. Studies on the issue continue to contradict one another. The issue being debated in the scientific and political arenas is just how much radiation is unsafe, and if there are any potential long-term effects of cell-phone radiation exposure.
http://www.safespaceprotection.com is an online compendium of news and research on electromagnetic fields. While radiations from mobile phone and cell phone towers are the site’s primary focus, it also has useful links describing research on radiation from objects of everyday use such as computers and microwave ovens.
