Remember a few years back when there was a huge concern over the amount of radiation our cellphones were emitting? I can’t even tell you how long it’s been awhile since I’ve read a FUD piece on how our smartphones are slowly cooking our brains into oversized chicken nuggets. I’m not gonna lie to you guys. Whenever I hold my Android device up to my head to make a call, there’s always this little voice in the back of my head telling me that 1. I could be giving myself brain cancer and 2. “Redrum” (whatever that means).

Today I found out that if you’re a Galaxy S3 owner, the chances of you developing a tumor on the side of your head with human teeth are significantly less than, say, I dunno… an iPhone user who, chances are, could be making a trip to their local neurologist sometime soon. Don’t take my word for it. The guys at Tawkon are experts at this sorta stuff and they recently released this infograph breaking it all down for you.

Tawkon made headlines not too long ago when they released an app for iOS that was quickly removed from the App Store after the results didn’t exactly display the iPhone in the best light. No worries, their beautifully designed app can be found in the Play Store where you can monitor your cellphone radiation and even compare your exposure with your friends. Good times.
