Some Cell Phone Makers Warn Against It; Large Study Shows Possible Hiked Brain Tumor Risk Among Long-term Heavy Users, Excerpt from article by Jennifer Ashton, CBSnew.com.
"If you read the fine print on your particular phone (in its users' manual, say, Apple: They say, for wireless data transmission over a cellular network, keep the iPhone at least 15 millimeters (5/8ths of an inch) away from the body. If you look at what BlackBerry says, they'll say keep the BlackBerry device at least 0.98ths of an inch from your body when the device is transmitting. If you put it in a holster, probably it will be over these minimum distance requirements. But if you slip it in your pocket, either your shirt pocket or pants pocket, it's gonna be directly next to your skin."
