instruments that emit EMF or radiation cause cancer.

There is a causal relationship. It hasn't been 100% proven that cell phones are the culprit.

And certainly, what accounts for all the prostate cancer historically, before that dark day when cellphones flooded the market.

*Edit 1*
@ Joe Blogs-no, dude, I meant "causal" relationship, not "casual." The causality is akin to not cutting back on cholesterol and ultimately dying of coronary blockage. The cholesterol was not THE ONLY FACTOR in the lethal cardio event: veins were blocked, the brain reduced in its 02 delivery, aging, medication, misdiagnosis, genes..... all too, play a CAUSAL role, but are not 100% responsible for the end product.

Listen, when we were kids, we knew not to mess with a doctors X-ray machine, because even in the 1950s, common sense told people that X-rays were a mixed blessing at best. At one point, and I'm not making this up, shoe stores used to X-ray a customer's foot (at least here in the US) with the new shoe on to see if it fit. I noticed they don't do that anymore.

Surely having a cellphone connected to your ear at every possibility isn't any more healthy than indiscriminate x-rays.

For years it was believed that cell phones cause cancer and for the past two years proof has grown. Apparently the only cancer from it is brain cancer. Regarding carrying cell phone on pockets or even on the hip on a belt it has been said often that it causes infertility in men.

I have a feeling that we're going to be seeing many changes concerning cell phone use!

The CNN-paid doctor Dr. Gupta said he kept his away from his front pocket since it could affect the prostrate, testicles, and bone marrow.

But we don't really know. There isn't even enough "control" subjects out there that will live without cell phones. We won't know for another 5 years probably.

There is a difference between short-term, mid-term, and long-term effects.

No such thing has yet been proven.

It is possible that constant use of cell phones over many years *might* cause a glioma...a fatal form of brain cancer. More studies need to be done.

Unless you use your scrotum to answer your phone, your naughty bits are safe.

Where do cell phones cause cancer?

Seriously, it's unlikely that it will cause prostate cancer. BUT, you may find out your girlfriend is pregnant with glowing children. :)
