I have recently been told by a nurse that non-malignant brain tumours are now frequently found behind the ears of frequent mobile phone users.
She quoted two instances she personally knew of: a woman in mid life who suddenly developed memory loss, and when her daughter insisted this wasn't Alzheimer's and she needed a specialist, the cause was found to be a tumour; a young man who suddenly collapsed and was operated on within days for tumours.

The nurse told me that the surgeon who carried out the op said he does several of these operations a day, all mobile phone users with the same kind of tumour behind their ears, and he doesn't know why reports are not issued. Except of course that a vast amount of money rides on the sales and use of these devices. The tumours may not be the malignant kind, but they are growing in a bone box full of needed matter, and putting pressure on nerves and blood vessels.

The nurse also told me that she had seen the autopsy report on Veronica Guerin, Irish journalist, who had been shot dead by gangsters; the deceased, a constant phone user, also had these odd tumours behind her ears.

I have known one man who worked on a family golf course so had an early mobile, so he could be reached when out and about. He developed a brain tumour.

Today's smartphones (which are mini computers, not just phones) do not have to work as hard at sending out signals, because they have masts all around them instead of every half mile. This means they emit less radiation. However, it's a great plan to keep them away from the head. Away from the body. Never under the pillow. Switched off if you don't need them.
