Default Mobile phone - radiation in cars


While gathering information on mobile phone radiation data ( planning to buy a new mobile handset ), I came across an article on the harmful effects of mobile phone radiation in cars.

Car Radiation Cell Phones Faraday Cage and Cancer

1) What hit me is that we're potentially all at risk.
2) Those with car films with metallic content - even more so.

I thought I'd check if we have suitably educated members who could throw more light on this or create awareness of the risk it poses.

Don't know how true it is. But sounds disturbing

Could also be a marketing strategy for their product.

I remember earlier there were some stickers being sold in market which were supposed to be stuck near the phone's antenna and they would absorb the radiation.
They even had LEDs in them which lighted up when ever the phone was about to ring.

In reality we are surrounded be all these mobile/wifi waves all the time. Most of the buildings now have atleast one mobile tower on their roof.

Total nonsense. When looking for news and studies, its better to look at Peer reviewed studies, and not online marketing sites.
