Stoves present a similar danger, as do ovens, and boiling water.  It  is well 
documented they all can cook eggs.  In fact, really, really  warm bath water 
might also do the trick, not to mention the proverbial hot  asphalt upon which 
one could fry an egg in the California, Nevada and New Mexico  deserts.  
Please keep your children out of the kitchen...and  bathrooms...and most of the 
western states during the summer.

Subject: Cell Phone Cooks egg - Oh  Oh!!!!


Need  A Cooker?
Use Your Cell Phone
By Sue Mueller
Many  organizations including the cell phone industry often downplay the risk 
of  cell phone radiation to the brain. Results from short-term studies were 
used  to convince consumers that use of a cell phone is not associated with 
brain  tumors or cancer, which only develop decades after exposure. 
To be fair,  no one knows exactly how much harm a cell phone can do to a 
person. However  
recently, news media have reported a study showing the radiation from cell  
phones is so full of energy they can be used to cook eggs. 
In the  experiment, researchers placed one egg in a porcelain cup (because it 
  conducts heat easily), and put one cell phone on one side and another cell  
phone on the other. The researchers then called from one cell phone to 
another  and kept the cell phones on after connecting. 
During the first 15 minutes,  nothing changed. After 25 minutes, however, the 
egg shell started to become  hot and at 40 minutes, the surface of the egg 
became hard and bristled.  Researchers found the protein in the egg had become 
solid although the egg  yolk was still in liquid form. After 65 minutes, the 
whole egg was well  cooked. 
The study shows how scary cell phone radiation is. People should  try to 
avoid use of cell phones. Although so far no one has proved the  radiation from 
cell phones can cause something clinically significant. By the  same token, 
there has been no one who can disprove the existence of such a  risk. 
Children should be forbidden from cell phone use because their  brains are 
still growing and are particularly vulnerable to radiation.

How Two Russian Journalists Cooked An Egg 
With Their Mobile  Phones 


Vladimir Lagovski and Andrei Moiseynko  from Komsomolskaya Pravda Newspaper 
in Moscow decided to learn first-hand how  harmful cell phones are. There is no 
magic in cooking with your cell phone.  The secret is in the radio waves that 
the cell phone radiates. 
The  journalists created a simple microwave structure as shown in the 
picture. They  called from one cell phone to the other and left both phones on 
talking mode.  They placed a tape recorder next to phones to imitate sounds of 
speaking so  the phones would stay on. 

After 15 minutes: The egg became slightly  warm. 
25 minutes: The egg became very warm. 
40 minutes: The egg became  very hot. 
65 minutes: The egg was cooked. (As you can see.)
