I disagree with the below findings.  The US FDA's Laboratory in Winchester, 
MA has studied the effects of them and found no serious health effects. 
they could be contacted for further information.

Interesting article.


NEW DELHI: Radiation from mobile phones and towers poses serious health 
risks, including loss of memory, lack of concentration, disturbance in the 
digestive system and sleep disturbances, according to an inter-ministerial 
committee formed by the ministry of communications and information 
technology to study the hazards posed by mobile phones.

The committee has also attributed the disappearance of butterflies, bees, 
insects and sparrows vanishing from big cities to mobile phone-related 

The eight-member committee, which included representatives from the health 
ministry, department of biotechnology and member secretary, DoT, has 
recommended that mobile phones not adhering to standard levels of specific 
absorption rate (SAR) - a measure of the amount of radiofrequency energy 
absorbed by the body while using a phone -- should be barred.
