  • Never heard that one!! Like the previous I have also heard this, but they say you have a bigger chance of being in a car accident than getting cancer from your phone.

  • Did you know in the 60's we were told to not swallow chewing would block our bowel. We were told to wait 1 hr after eating before swimming so you didn't get a cramp and drown. We were told in the 70's not to eat saccharin it was supposed to cause cancer...all these are now disproven as false, Be careful what you take to heart as truth.

  • LOL I'm sorry but THINK about this one... Autism is in most cases found EARLY in life, some mothers even know at birth, but you deff' know by the time your child is at least 5 years old. Now, who in the heck lets there 5 or younger run around using a cell phone? AND even just to talk on it every now and than, wouldn't cause Autism. I think that sounds redicilous. YEah cell phones are probably not all that great for your brain, but this sounds very unlikely.
