I Phone "Car Comfort" Device Raises Health Concerns

If you use a cell phone you should read about this potential risk to your health.

by Long Island Attorney Paul A. Lauto, Esq.

As a follow up to our last blog, there is a relatively new "car comfort" iPhone device that is now available for the sale price of $19.99.  The device is called the Strap Caddy and attaches to your car's seat belt shoulder harness in front of your chest.  The Strap Caddy allows you to place your iPhone into the holder resting comfortably on your chest, so that you can make and receive calls in hands free fashion while driving. 

While this new product certainly has a measure of convenience, many question the real price for this convenience.  Case and point is found in the May issue of the Environmental Health Trust's newsletter, which discusses a female patient who developed multi-focal breast cancer.  This particular young lady did not have any predisposing risk factors for cancer, but had the habit of tucking her cell phone into her bra.
