Studies link cell phones to breast and thyroid cancer

In 2011, the International Agency for Research on Cancer classified radiofrequency radiation, the type used in smartphones and laptops, as a “possible human carcinogen.” Now, two new studies may confirm they were right on the money, at least when it comes to two common cancers that have increased dramatically over the past few years.

Snoring. Waking up multiple times a night gasping for air. Feeling tired and irritable throughout day.
