Cellphone Use Linked to Excess Saliva

So, yakking excessively ( and loudly) on a cell phone can make you look like a drooling idiot? So what else is new? I wonder what other kinds of growths cell phone radiation might be encouraging...

An interesting story. You know, though, the cell phone that woman is holding is the spitting image of one I used to own...

Wow. I only use about 100 minutes a month on a cell phone. Yet my dentist has to keep the suction going when working in my mouth, because of my saliva production. I don't think the two are cause and effect in my case.
