Cell Phones and Breast Cancer

Is there a link between cell phone placement and breast cancer? What you Need to Know:
  1. Cellphones are two-way microwave radios that should not be kept directly on the body.
  2. The soft fatty tissue of the breast readily absorbs this radiation.
  3. Case Reports are accumulating of young women with no family history getting a diagnosis of breast cancer. The tumors were unusually located directly underneath the skin where they placed their cell phones in their bra.
  4. Doctors voice this precautionary advice: Women should not store their cell phones in their bra.
