Fear not ! fear not the phone and cancer

Humans seem prone to fear. I fear that I don't eat well enough, fear that I might become obese, fear that I will get diabetes, fear that I am not doing enough to keep my wellness. And this is only in one area of my life.

People seem to also fear what they don't know or what they don't understand. I remember debating as a form 1 student (year 7) my teacher who was afraid of radiation from microwave. Tried to communicate that microwaves had not nuclear radiation but in my youth couldn't quite articulate why she was wrong.

Well here is another fear that you can lay to rest. McDoctor has done a excellent post about how cell phone usage does NOT cause brain cancer (and one could also infer that cordless phones do not cause brain cancer).

So this is one thing that you don't have to fear about. I am learning to fear less, by refocusing on the positive in my past.
