WE’VE written on several occasions about the possible health hazards of frequent and prolonged use of cellular phones. I’ve had an interesting conversation recently with Doctors Willie and Liza Ong, who are staunch advocates of public health, on the current controversy about cell sites being placed in residential villages.

Last week we talked about the long-term hazard of microwave radiation from prolonged use of cellular phones. But it’s not only mobile phones that we should be concerned about. Another product of modern technology, which no doubt gives us a lot of convenience, can also be a source of radiation that might contribute to the development of brain tumors later on in life. We’re referring to cordless phones that we use a lot of at home.
