People often cite the cigarette industry of suppressing the facts on a health related issues.

Is the same happening with the (multi-billion $) mobile phone industry ?

For example.....

According to a scientific study published in Fertility and Sterility in May 2007, statistically significant changes were found in men’s sperm count and health of the sperm, based on cell phone use. 

Their conclusion? 

“Use of cell phones decreases the semen quality in men by decreasing the sperm count, motility, viability and normal morphology. The decrease in sperm parameters was dependent on the duration of daily exposure to cell phones, and independent of the initial semen quality.”

At least using them will keep the population count down.

its funny you know if the government put an add in the paper saying

 'to help population levels will all males with one child take a free drug to reduce your sperm count '

 I dont think there would be many takers

yet here we have people actually paying for the same effect

I think scientists agree they are dangerous but cannot agree on the level of danger

I think the level of agreement depends on whose funding the research.

You can easy manipulate scientific study for your benefit if you've got money and influence.

Nokia saw mobile phone sales soar 38.6 percent year on year to 70.7 million units in China last year, according to its quarterly report released on its official website.

The Finnish telecoms giant attributed the surge to its widespread distribution channels, various products and a strong position in the country's low-end market.

Since 2006, the world's largest mobile phone maker started entering China's huge rural market and its sales jumped 39 percent to 6.9 billion dollars in 2006, as it sold 51 million mobile phones.

The need for greater research has been echoed by Prof Lawrie Challis.

He has confirmed that a second wave of studies - funded by the Government and the phone industry - would include a long-term look at the health of 200,000 mobile users in Britain, Denmark, Sweden and Finland.

The Swedish scientists' initial findings were unveiled in April but are published in full in the latest issue of the peer-reviewed journal Occupational Environmental Review.

They want a revision of the emission standard for mobiles and other sources of radiation, which they describe as "inappropriate" and "not safe".

The international standard is designed merely to prevent harmful heating of living tissue or induced electrical currents in the body, and does not take into account the risk of getting cancer.

Study: Cell phones cause heart disease, kidney failure

1st January 2009

The European Research Institute for Electronic Components in Bucharest found that cell phones may lead to heart disease and kidney stones, according to Switched.com.

How is this possible?  The study found that cell phones emit radiation, which causes red blood cells to leak hemoglobin, according to Softpedia.com.  The hemoglobin then accumulates in the body, which can lead to health complications including heart disease or kidney stones.

This new study is just one in a series of studies about the ills of cell phone use.  Researchers at Sweden's Lund University found that exposure to cell phone radiation could cause proteins and toxins to leak into the brain, according to Softpedia.com.  This can lead to Alzheimer's, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's.

And here's something even more disturbing: average cell phone ownership is up to two per person, according to Switched.com.  That's a lot of extra radiation!

The Federation of the Electronics Industry claims that there is no conclusive proof that cell phones are a health hazard, according to Softpedia.com.
