As long as I can remember, I've loathed talking on the telephone. Chatting in person? Great! E-mails? Most definitely! But the telephone... I'll just pass, thanks. Maybe it's that I'm an introvert...(remember?), or quite possibly it's my pretty miserable ADHD. Best guess, it's a little bit of both. Now though, I have a great excuse not to spend chunks of my time on at least one of my phones.
A recent memo was sent out by well-respected cancer researcher at the University of Pittsburgh's Caner Institute, Ronald B. Herberman MD. It was to his colleagues, warning them of the potential cancer-causing harm done by the electromagnetic waves of cellular devices. He sent this memo out before any of his research data has been published and made public, but he urged the recipients to err on the side of caution, hopefully preventing further danger. You can, and should read his Memo HERE, which includes 10 suggestions on safer cell phone use.
I don't mean to be an alarmist, but come on, haven't we all wondered about the safety of cell phone use for years? I know that I have. As science is becoming better at understanding the effects of these electromagnetic waves on our bodies, and more studies come out, I think we should in the very least take the findings into consideration and hopefully heed their warnings.
In the meantime, for those of you that need to get a hold of me, if at all possible, try to catch me at home. That or gosh, snail mail would be so awesome.
And for God's sake Katie, put down that i-phone! ;)
