Submission + - Popular Science Looks at Cellphone Radiation (popsci.com)

pgn674 writes: Popular Science has published a feature article looking at the current state of cellphone radiation and its research. It touches on people who claim to be electro-hypersensitive, "who are reluctant to subject themselves to hours in an electronics-laden facility" for studies. The limited research on that is still showing that sufferers are unable to detect radiation in blind tests. Electromagnetic fields causing cancer is also reviewed, with the conclusion that while it seems likely that high frequency fields in consumer devices don't directly cause cancer, they might promote it, and may also indirectly cause other health detriments beyond simply heating nearby tissue.
