This morning I heard a sad real story from my colleague.

She told me one of her friend always miscarriage when the baby 2-3
old for few times continuously in few years time. The couple went to
with many doctors and lastly one of the doctor check on the death
found out the baby's body cells keeping die when baby growing up
he/she cannot be survived.

This is because her uterus has been affected by HANDPHONE radiation .
doctor told she has no chance to get baby no matter how because the
radiotion affected her uterus which the major portion of her uterus
already death, cannot carry healthy baby. All this because of she has
keeping her handphone in her working jacket which the position just
to the uterus positon for few years time. Please beware and take note
consequences is not worth.

Dearest family members,
Please do not overlook the handphone radiation which will affect our
or body organs. Please put away your handphone when ever you don't
much .
Guys, Please do not keep your handphone near to the kidney position
pants pocket as this will hurt and affect your "production" if you
get baby.
The other doctor also advice another friend to keep away handphone to
new born baby to avoid radiotion to baby's brain and cells. Do not
baby or toddler play with the handphone for long time. This is
small young baby or toddler still very fragile and most probably they
cannot take the radiotion.
Please remind yourself do not sleep together with your handphone or
next to your bed. Keep away any other electronic goods (such as tv
which got radiotion away from your bedroom to reduce risk as we have
sleep few hours a day in our bedroom at night. Do not think that you
off the TV it will be no radiation actually it is still around in
just not eyes visible, even the small alarm clock not to be advised
just next to your head while sleeping.
Care about yourself & your loved ones.

Mobiles don't cause cancer (http://medicine.com.my/wp/?p=1699)

Although there is no clear connection that mobiles are cancer causing, I'm wondering why I get frequent headaches so often when using my mobile without my hands free. I'm using a nokia n73. I heard of this rf energy, which will be released etc..and that could be damaging when one uses a mobile too near to the skull long term.

Doc, is there any truth into this claim? Thanking you in advance.

The "truth" can only come from proper randomised controlled trials where there is comparison with a "control" . In one such trial published in the British Medical Journal

The authors concluded:

"No evidence was found to indicate that people with self reported sensitivity to mobile phone signals are able to detect such signals or that they react to them with increased symptom severity. As sham exposure was sufficient to trigger severe symptoms in some participants, psychological factors may have an important role in causing this condition."

The sham exposure here is a "dummy" which did not have any GSM signal. Basically it means that there was no difference in headaches when subjects were exposed to GSM signals versus a dummy. Yes, you could say it's "all in your mind"

The BMJ also reminds us in their article “Brains and mobile phones”
The biggest risk to health from mobile phones is using them while driving
Now that is the most important health tip regarding mobile phones!!

There is a report published by CONSUMER association, get the little booklet from MPH.

If you can use handfree kit or that little wired earphone/mic. It radiates around the phone so, if its further, it does less harm.

Not sure bout the bluetooth handsfree, but the frequency similar with our microwave oven's.

Thanks for all the info, will find time to read up soon.

But it's still mind boggling, how someone could actually get a headache involuntarily.
