The answer is simply yes cell phones tranmit thousands of radioactive sound waves every .1 of a second. They cause brain tumours that cant be prevented BUT THEY ALSO CANT BE CURED. Good riddens to all typers xx

umm brain tumours can be prevented and can be cured. My granny got one and they removed it.
about cellphones hurting you I don't think so because the DNA does not pickup the frequencies of the microwaves. Tumors appear because the DNA in your cells pick up elecromagnetic radiation and mutates. However the wavelengths need to be much much smaller in order for this to happen. Water does so you heat up a little but the energy is so extremely small it's negligible.
I would be more worried about cathode ray tube monitors because they emit a small amount of gamma rays.

In my opinion, I don't think they are. Microwaves - the type of waves that mobile phones emit, have a similar wavelength to radio waves, and are not that powerful (compared to gamma radiation.)
Having said that, there is no proof that they are not damaging to us, and a study in the future could prove me wrong.

i'd be more worried about the aholes that think it is fine to drive and have the d*mn phone to their head, than i would be about the radiation from the phones. as far as i'm concerned when one of these aholes gets popped by the police the fine should be 1/10 their gross monthly wages.

cell phones transmit thousands of radioactive sound waves every .1 of a second.
Cellphones only emit a few high frequency waves and it is 1000s of CYCLES every .000001 of a second as they waves are in the GHz range.
Sound waves are not radioactive, sound waves are pressure waves, only way a sound wave is radioactive is if it contains ionized radioactive particles suspended in the air. A cell phone gives off Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR), not as bad as ionizing radiation. Electromagnetic radiation is the same kind of radiation that allows you to see, light, or listen to the radio. where as Radon, Uranium, Plutonium or even Carbon are ionizing radiation in their unstable states. EMR can become ionizing when they reach the gamma ray stature
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)
although many studies have examined the potential health effects of non-ionizing radiation from radar, microwave ovens, and other sources, there is currently no consistent evidence that non-ionizing radiation increases cancer risk
The only known biological effect of radiofrequency [EMR] energy is heating. The ability of microwave ovens to heat food is one example of this effect of radiofrequency [EMR] energy.
A recent study showed that when people used a cell phone for 50 minutes, brain tissues on the same side of the head as the phoneâ€™s antenna metabolized more glucose than did tissues on the opposite side of the brain (2). The researchers noted that the results are preliminary, and possible health outcomes from this increase in glucose metabolism are still unknown.
Although there have been some concerns that radiofrequency energy from cell phones held closely to the head may affect the brain and other tissues, to date there is no evidence from studies of cells, animals, or humans that radiofrequency energy can cause cancer.
It is generally accepted that damage to DNA is necessary for cancer to develop. However, radiofrequency energy, unlike ionizing radiation, does not cause DNA damage in cells
(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 theyâ€™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."
