 This is the first hard core data I have seen that supports what only seem natural:

"Long-term Cell Phone Use Linked to Brain Tumor Risk":

Long-term use of both mobile and cordless phones is associated with an increased risk for glioma, the most common type of brain tumor, the latest research on the subject concludes. The new study shows that the risk for glioma was tripled among those using a wireless phone for more than 25 years and that the risk was also greater for those who had started using mobile or cordless phones before age 20 years. "Doctors should be very concerned by this and discuss precautions with their patients," study author Lennart Hardell, MD, PhD, professor, Department of Oncology, University Hospital, Örebro, Sweden, told Medscape Medical News. Such precautions, he said, include using hands-free phones with the "loud speaker" feature and text messaging instead of phoning.

    Yet texting has its own dangers, recently discussed in a physiognomy journal. The angled head puts 60 lbs of unneeded downward pull on the head and spine, and over the year, the angle consistently maintained when peering down to text adds thousands of downward pull pounds on the head and spine, leading to headaches, misalignment and worse.

    Advised: Texting with shoulders erect and square, ears over shoulders.
