Isn't that what the medical experts are now studying?, Perhaps they
should all give up since the answers have been made clear here?

As to the other arguments about "years of knowledge", perhaps you can
cite when they were able to use state of the art diagnostic and analysis
equipment way back years ago, or the studies that used children to
determine if long-term exposure to RF had no negative effect on their
developing bodies?

There may very well be no significant negative effects from using
cellphones, but unless people conduct investigations on this recent
(in terms of any possible long-term medical outcomes) phenomenon,
using the latest techniques, then assuming that it is safe is just
plain folly.
