Do they or don’t they?

New research suggests they may. A 2.4-year-long study of 300 people from Britain, Australia and the Netherlands found slower brain function in frequent cellphone users.

PC Magazine has the full story in layman’s terms. The journal story is a bit more complex, probably too complex for cellphone users like me.

Everything has their pros and cons but that does not stop us from doing anything nor will the mobile phones.
