Mobile Phones 'Make You Senile'?

Story in today's Independent from the UK:

Mobile phones and the new wireless technology could cause a "whole generation" of today's teenagers to go senile in the prime of their lives, new research suggests

The study - which warns specifically against "the intense use of mobile phones by youngsters" - comes as research on their health effects is being scaled down, due to industry pressure. It is likely to galvanise concern about the almost universal exposure to microwaves in Western countries, by revealing a new way in which they may seriously damage health.

I absolutely don't agree with this assumption. I love my mobile phone and it definitely does not make me senile. In contrast, it makes me feel younger and "fresher" than ever. Especially since I found a new site in the internet, it's where I found pictures, wallpapers, the latest ringtones even in real music quality and games for my mobile phone. And this in such a big range. Everybody is looking at me when my phone rings and I definitely don't feel senile on that occasions.
