Of course you'll get some radiation-kooks who say that a wired headset
amplifies rather then reduces the risk as it not only carries the
radiation up to your ear, but it acts like an antenna and picks up
additional radiation and channels it to your ear too.

Personally, I'm waiting for Penn and Teller to take on the cell phone
radiation kooks (And if anyone misses the reference, see )

When you're arguing with a fool, make sure he isn't doing the same thing.
