A month or so ago there was a widespread rumor in Pakistan that some virus is getting spread around via mobile calls. So much so that Pakistan Telecommunication Authority had to give above clarification. The english translation goes like this: “There is no anti-health virus in the mobile phone”.

    This reminds me my teacher of Cellular Wireless course as someone in the class ask about the Health hazards and he mentioned a study which concluded that it is 10 times more harmful to be close to a microwave during the heating process than having a cellphone next to your body. He used to tell us to keep yourself away from the microwave.
