Well I would say that if mobile phones are eventually proven to be bad
for your health, it is most likely to be the phone itself that is the
culprit rather than the mast mounted tx at the local school etc; a
point that still has not been made by the media or, it seems, anyone
providing them with information.

It is probably worth noting that, in my experience, most children use
their mobiles almost exclusively for 'texting' rather than 'talking';
presumably this carries significantly less risk perceived or otherwise.

I agree. Proximity is the dominant factor at work here. That's why
these scare stories about mobile phone masts and cancer are such
total nonsense.
There may well be some significant risk associated with the
conventional use of mobiles right next to the head, though. The EM
field is bound to invade brain tissue and the effects of such exposure
to even low levels of near-microwave frequencies are as yet not fully
known.

Sounds rather like the precautionary principle to me. Nothing
particularly new about it. Perhaps a crisis waiting to happen.

Yes, it's a usual load of Tosh, the opening paragraph says it all, even a so
called expert admits he doesn't know.

"Parents should ensure their children use mobile phones only when absolutely
necessary because of the potential health risks, an expert is warning."
Then in same sentence,

"The latest study by Sir William Stewart says there is still no proof mobile
phones are unsafe,"

The vision of angry villagers with flaming torches spring to mind every time
I hear about objections to mobile phones/masts.

The IEEE Spectrum reports that cell phone use for ten years
results in a benign tumor that causes hearing loss.

What?

;-)

I heard (no pun intended) that the YAAH committee report states that most of
the talk about health being put under risk by mobile phones/mast is totally
bollox.

I have to agree, before anyone spouts off about being sick due to a nearby
mast perhaps the investigators ought to check the contents of moaners fridge
etc first.
