I say texting and driving is more dangerous. :)

I don't think any one person has anything to worry about. It's our species that could be in danger. We use microwaves, radios, cell phones, nuclear reactors and x-rays, and the list goes on. It doesn't hurt anyone too much, but slowly it alters the way our cells divide and mutate. Slowly it reduces sperm-count in males and increases the likelihood of cancer and reproductive disorders. In a few thousand years, we may come to a point where reproduction is impossible.

In the late 90s and early 00's cellphones where linked to brain cancer, but not the EMR, it was the kind of screens they where using.
but what about more recently? http://www.cancer.gov/cancertopics/factsheet/Risk/cellphones (Reviewed Aug 16, 2011)
(Part 5 is worth a look but I wont copy it over)
Scientific America says "In other words, the verdict is still out." on November 21, 2008 in "Fact or Fiction?: Cell Phones Can Cause Brain Cancer"
The Washington Post agrees with the above story on June 3rd of 2011 in "Do cellphones cause cancer? Unclear. But science proves they’re annoying."
So what lessons should we take away
Do your research and don't listen blindly to what the media says, if they had their way we all would be in aluminum covers helmets in the middle of the deep woods scaring us shirtless (because the cloth used to make clothes cause cancer too) using mud to avoid sunburn (which is linked to skin cancer) because sunscreen is toxic.
I have offered a lot of evidence to support my claims and have cited them adequately, where do you get your information? every CREDIBLE source I find says in a nutshell, "We don't know yet."

Although I cant argue with the point that doing anything else while driving other then driving is inherently more dangerous then just focusing on driving. But to say cell phones are killing us because people text and drive is akin to saying guns kill people. But I'm sure most people on this site will agree that guns don't kill people, people kill people, admittedly guns make it easier, but they don't themselves. Just like cellphones, they don't kill people, people kill people.
