Are mobile phones a health hazard?

Academic and toxicologist Devra Davis said that the mobile phones could be giving us brain cancer.
According to Davis, an eminent American scientist and one of the country’s leading epidemiologists, the mobile phone industry spent years trying to bury scientific evidence — that it harms — to protect its $3 trillion, 4.6 billion-customer global business.
With mobile phone use soaring, especially among the young, Davis says a “global public health catastrophe” will be seen in as little as three years if the problem is ignored, the Daily Mail reported.
The most troubling research, she says, threatens male fertility. Research in seven countries, including the US, China and Australia, suggests that keeping a switched-on mobile phone in a trouser pocket can have a drastic effect on sperm count.
“All the research shows the same thing – if you take young men who are trying to become fathers, those who use mobile phones at least four hours a day have about half the sperm count of others,” Davis says.
