Here's My Carcinogenic Hazard Number

Just how dangerous is your cellphone? San Francisco's back in court today to appeal last year's court decision that defeated (temporarily) the city's attempt to require cellphone vendors to post warnings about potential health hazards from the devices' radiation. Of course, no one can agree on the level of hazard involved, and while the CNET article admirably lays the dueling POVs, it still makes our head hurt. The World Health Organization has declared cellphone radiation a hazard on the level of lead in gasoline, but so far, they've taken no position on texting or Angry Birds. [Link and image via CNET]
