The latest studies on cell phones bring good news: scientists have not been able to find a significant link with any serious health problems, brain tumours having been of greatest concern.

That said, several other studies previously did find worrying connections, and cell phones are still a very new technology. So I consider it a sensible precaution to talk on them as little as possible, use a hands-free set with an earpiece and speakerphone, and carry the phone away from your body.
