If gophers could read, what books would they choose? Well, the truth
is that gophers can't read, so that question can't be answered.

As far as RF exposure is concerned, nobody has provided any real
evidence for harm, so it's hard to say which is less harmful when
there isn't any evidence of harm.

If you're worried, use a beltpack unit and hold it away from your
body. Or just use a wired phone.
