Technology Review reports: "The microwaves that cellphones emit can interact with human tissue in an entirely new way, says theoretical biologist at governmentlab."

The debate continues:

If there's one topic likely to generate spit-flecked ire, it is the controversy over the potential health threat posed by cellphone signals.

That debate is likely to flare following the publication today of some new ideas on this topic from Bill Bruno, a theoretical biologist at Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico.

The big question is whether signals from cellphones or cellphone towers can damage biological tissue.

On the one hand, there is a substantial body of evidence in which cellphone signals have supposedly influenced human health and behaviour. The list of symptoms includes depression, sleep loss, changes in brain metabolism, headaches and so on.
