    I'm not sure I'm happy enough with the rumors to use my phone a large amount for calls but then I don't anyway- just the odd short one here and there and I don't think there is a great deal of risk from that type of useage.

    I think that they can. There isn't hard evidence to support this claim, but neither is there anything to contradict it. A study has recently been released which may be of interest to you..

    Whether or not the next stage of research will show a definite link between disease and mobile phone use remains to be seen.
