News broke that the search giant Google announced on Nov 18 that it just launched a new version of Google Mobile App which allows users to enter their search query by voice.   But this new feature comes in U.S. English and for iphone only.


Mobile phone or cell phone is convenient to use, but carries a risk.   The industry does not want you to know about it and always down play the adverse effect.   Many people have already known that use of cell phone for a long term would increase risk of brain cancer. It does not matter you use iphone or another type.   Google Mobile App cannot reduce the risk!


Hardell L and colleagues from University Hospital in Orebro Sweden published a study in the May 2008 issue of International Journal of Oncology saying that evidence is convincing that long term use of the wireless stuff drastically increases risk of brain tumors.


Hardell and colleagues reviewed 10 studies and found that long term use defined as more than 10 years increased the tumor risk by 20 percent.   When used on the same side of the head, wireless phone increased the risk of brain tumor by 100 percent.


When you use any modern technology, always consider there might be a risk associated with the application.   Google voice recognition technology can’t reduce the risk, not just yet.
