Sheryl Crow believes excessive cell phone use may be to blame for the benign tumor in her brain.

Crow just appeared on Katie Couric's new show and said the tumor is located in her "cell phone area" ... and says, "I do have the theory that it's possible that it's related to [cell phone use]."

Crow admits her theory has not been confirmed by doctors, but says she's convinced because "[in the] early early days when I was promoting my first record, I did hours of phoners on the old archaic cell phones."

The singer says it became difficult to carry on normal conversations ... claiming she felt "mushy" ... and at one point she was convinced she had early onset Alzheimer's.

Later, she learned she had a benign tumor the size of her pinky that's located between her skull and the lining of her brain.

Crow told Katie the tumor is "nothing I have to worry about" but says it's important to monitor the situation.

The fact that Holding a phone that emits radiation to your head for hours a day can cause a tumor shouldn't shock anybody. Since most people text now, thats prob going to save a lot of lives over the next 20 years. But more studies are going to keep coming out that will prove she's probably right.

Masturbating to your computer can trigger testicular cancer...

Schrute sperm are strong. But not as strong as a fully-grown Schrute.

If she had no life and no friends none of this would have happened.

Is she sure it isn't because a few years ago she used more than a single sheet of toilet paper to blow her nose, after having told the world to limit themselves to a single sheet when they take a dump?

Whatever, I hope she'll be ok. She's at the age when things can just start happening, life is partly a crap shoot no matter what you do or how old you are, but once you are in your late 40's your odds of having problems you didn't used to have increase.

Maybe the cell phone is also responsible for that ugly tumor on your shoulder with hairy top and ugly eyeballs. Sheryl Crow is proof that entertainers are significantly less intelligent then the rest of the population. They live through their stardom and have no connection to reality. A bunch of dumb f-cks.

the latest studies showed that definitely cell phones are causing brain tumors. Childhood brain tumors have increased by over 50% in the last 10 years; adults, 30%. Look it up.... but you won't hear it on the news... they don't want you to know. Need you to keep buying and talking. I gave mine up.

Isn't this the same genius who told us we should only use ONE square of toilet paper?? I tried that and my fingers are now smelling like Cheryl Crows fingers and for some reason, my nose smells like sh-t too.. I wonder if she picks her nose too.

It's called a meningioma - I have one as well. I DON'T talk on cell phones or any phone for that matter due to hearing loss. Most meningioma tumors are benign but since mine is a little large, it does cause me severe headaches, blurry vision and slight memory problems once in a while.

First she was sure her cancer was caused by water drunk from a plastic bottle left in her car. Now she's just as sure it was caused by her cell phone. Maybe both; maybe neither. Everybody with disease wants to know the cause but her kind of "reasoning" isn't helpful to anyone -- least of all herself.

There is no conclusive scientific proof of her statements, therefore I will continue to take her hypotheses as just those, hypotheses. Sheryl Crow is an artist, not a scientist.

WOULD YOU STICK YOUR HEAD

IN A MICROWAVE OVEN?

EXPERT DISCUSSES CONTROVERSY
OVER CELL PHONE SAFETY.

Today there are an estimated seven hundred million cell phones in the world. In Europe 80% of the population uses them, compared to 50% in the US. The US. market is growing quickly . All this points to one fact: cell phones are BIG business. Even though the health risks from radiation are being reported and the evidence is mounting, the industry giants continue to claim their products are safe.
Shelly Kalnitsky, an authority on cell phone issues wants to ask your listeners three questions.
1. Do you now believe nicotine is non-addictive?
2. Do you now believe that cigarette smoking does not cause lung cancer?
3. Do the words “radiation” and “microwaves” sound like something you want going into your brain?

“The jury is still out on the extent of the long term effects of cell phones” says Kalnitsky “but we are discovering more evidence of cell phone dangers.” He points to an independent reporting site cprnewsbureau.org which do***ents hundreds of articles , studies and research on cell phone dangers.
He discusses :
• How the industry suppresses negative stories.
• The increased risks cell phones pose to teens and children.
• Why current hands free kits are more dangerous.
• New products that can reduce the risk.
• Safety tips in cell phone usage.

Kalnitsky is an expert on the subject and can add insight on recent scientific findings as well as discuss protection devices such as shields, new hands free radiation free kits and safety tips that can offer a remedy for cell phone users.
