    Tonight I was at the lecture on mobile phone safety and I have just thought of a question…
    With all the phone signals jiggling around us, is there some sort of cumulative effect which might have a detrimental health impact upon us or the environment? Perhaps the heat from all the jiggling atoms might be contributing to global warming? (or am I getting my wires crossed?)
    I would be grateful if you answered me via the booklet at next weeks session as I may never find this website again!
    Thanks, I’m really enjoying the course.
