    I have used a mobil phone since 1975, so I'm no stranger to changes and the cost for this convenience to run a business. During the 90's I owned a landscape company that did work within 300 miles of Portland and used the Motorola brick phone to communicate. I don't remember how many minutes I was on this phone but I do remember using 3 spare batteries and the monthly bill was over $700/mo.

    January 1998 a lump on my right neck was diagnose as Lymphoma (non curable type). I threw my phones away because I knew the phone caused my cancer. After 4 years of remission I bought a cell phone 12/2003. Three months later my Lymphoma came back, then again in 2008. If it wasn't for a new drug used in my treatments in 1998, that I was a test case, I would be dead.

    I use the my cell phone as little as possible and the majority of the time I email or text. Since we have no internet it serves as my computer.

    The high usage of cell phone especially by kids concerns me and how phones are again getting bigger and stronger.

    So, I'm ok with:
    The antenna that is standard;
    Smaller battery that needs a charge;
    A device small enough to put in my coat pocket instead of my pants;

    I just thought I would share my feelings about where this industry is going. So, for all the demanding consumers, the manufactures knows this.

    I wrote this today because my dear daughter reninded me when I told my wife I wanted a smart watch for Christmas.

    "Why would you want to wear what caused your cancer?"

    She turns off her Wifi except when she is using it. She doesn't allow cell phones near my 1 and 3 year old grandkids. She never puts her cell phone in her bra but carries it in her purse. She never uses a battery powered handheld. .........

    Wonder if anyone have love ones that have cancer from using a cell phone?

    All these wearables coming out can't help but wonder.

    I hope 10 years from now these kids don't get it. Glad they use it mostly for gaming and texting.

    Now, of course this is a small sample size, and everyone is different.

    Not to diminish any pain you've gone through or any if your struggles.

    But I have not seen any link between cancer and cellphone usage.

    Now, it's true that using any electronic device gives off an electric field. It is also true that it uses high frequency waves to communicate.

    However, if those things were to cause cancer, then everyone would have died years ago with the invention of the radio.
