NO BRAINER.

Byline: FIONA PHILLIPS

ONCE, while checking in for a flight, my former colleague Eamonn Holmes and I were told to switch off our mobile phones.

The check-in girl showed us that our phones had interfered with her computer, producing a mass of green lines and gobbledegook.

So I'm not at all surprised that scientists have found they can interfere with medical equipment that is more than 9ft away in hospitals.

Tests showed that a mobile phone signal switched off an automatic pump used to dispense life-saving drugs, confused a pacemaker and messed up a heart monitor.

Hmmm, funny that all research carried out to see if mobiles interfere with our brains show no evidence of danger.

Could it be because the studies are mostly conducted by the phone industry? So we really shouldn't worry, should we.
