That hay fever that's plaguing you? Blame it on your cellphone

Peter Rojas

A researcher in Japan says that cellphones can exacerbate allergies because the microwaves emitted from cellphones stimulate antigens in the bloodstream. His controlled experiment probably won't be appearing in the New England Journal of Medicine anytime soon (he had some people with allergies talk on their cellphone while watching a video, while a control group of allergy sufferers had their phones turned off), but this would explain all the hives that appear all over our body every time the phone rings. We don't even have to turn the ringer on anymore, we can just "feel" when someone's calling.

P.S. - Anyone out there know how to say "junk science" in Japanese?
