There has been much contraversy t0 date about whether or not cell phones cause interference in the presence of medical devices. Some people think they are a big problem, while others think they're crazy. I've always thought of it like a cell phone on an airplane - I'm almost positive it won't make a difference, but is it really worth trying??

Anyway, according to this Reuters article, cell phones cause some interference to medical devices. How's that for commitment?

Their conclusion:

"Technological changes to either cellular telephones or to medical devices may continue to mitigate or may possibly worsen electromagnetic interference,"

What kind of science is this? My cat could have told you that, and I don't even have a cat! All I know, is that when I go under the knife next month, my surgeon better be using a hands-free device!
