Here it is, your daily dose of semi-rational fear. A bunch of females (two Jettas full) had a patch of skin exposed to an hour of 900MHz radiation from GSM phones. The researchers then checked out skin samples and found that there were several proteins that had their expression affected in every volunteer’s case. I don’t think that’s good for those of us who keep our phones in the front pockets of our pants.
