Mobile phone, bad for you!

Ok we've been hearing about this since a long time, we're over it, yes we get cancer from putting plastic Tupperware in the microwaves, not eating tomatoes a lot and exposing our silky beautiful skin to the sun!
YET, this article actually lists which phones emits more radiation than others, and that the phone should not have an Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) greater than 1.6 watts per kilogram (W/kg).

Here you go, the top 10 most radiation emitting phones:
1. Motorola MOTO VU204 - 1.55 W/kg
2. T-Mobile myTouch 3G - 1.55 W/kg
3. Kyocera Jax S1300 - 1.55 W/kg
4. Blackberry Curve 8330 - 1.54 W/kg
5. Motorola W385 - 1.54 W/kg
6. T-Mobile Shadow - 1.53 W/kg
7. Motorola C290 - 1.53 W/kg
8. Motorola i335 - 1.53 W/kg
9. Motorola MOTO VE240 - 1.52 W/kg
10. Blackberry Bold 9000 - 1.51 W/kg

    so i looked it up and my cell emits 0.67 w/kg :)

  2. iPhone 0.67 W/kg!! Not bad Apple!

  3. just you wait 2 hours, other articles contradicting this theory will be published!
