Why does science always assume that one size fits all?  It seems more logical that we would all react differently.

New Clues to Cell-Phone Health Effects

A study shows that the effects of cell-phone radiation may depend on your genes.

By Duncan Graham-Rowe

The way a living cell responds to radio waves from a cell-phone could depend on the cell’s genetic makeup, according to a new study carried out in Finland. And these findings may suggest how the effects of cellular radiation vary from person to person.

The study, which is the first to examine how the impact of cell phone exposure might be affected by genomic differences, could also help to explain why attempts to replicate previous studies linking cell-phone use with health problems have failed, says Dariusz Leszczynski, head of radiation biology at the Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority in Helsinki, who led the research.
