Sheryl Crow - Cell Phone May Have Caused Brain Tumor
TMZ ^ | Sept. 10, 2012 | TMZ Staff

Posted on 09/10/2012 2:48:37 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

Sheryl Crow believes excessive cell phone use may be to blame for the benign tumor in her brain.

Crow just appeared on Katie Couric's new show and said the tumor is located in her "cell phone area" ... and says, "I do have the theory that it's possible that it's related to [cell phone use]."

Crow admits her theory has not been confirmed by doctors, but says she's convinced because "[in the] early early days when I was promoting my first record, I did hours of phoners on the old archaic cell phones."

The singer says it became difficult to carry on normal conversations ... claiming she felt "mushy" ... and at one point she was convinced she had early onset Alzheimer's.

There's lots of people that believe that cell phones cause tumors. That doesn't make it so. Their belief is based on ignorance. Cell phones don't have the power to break up cells - no matter how long you use them. Just as lukewarm water won't burn the meat off your arm, even if you let the water run over your arm for years on end.

the radiation from cell phones cannot penetrate the human skull. Second the radiation is too weak and the wave length too long to damage DNA. This doesn’t even consider the constant radio waves that are around us every second

She has a brain? Who knew?

Maybe it’s because she’s only using one sheet of toilet paper per visit?

phoners

A phoner is a someone who has entered a store of some type while on their cellular device and who then attempts to perform some form of business transaction with a clerk. They use rudimentary forms of gestures and facial expressions to try and inform the clerk of the item they would like to purchase. They rarely use words and if they do it is in low tones, so that they are not rude to the person on the other end of their conversation, but also so they will be nearly inaudible to the clerk.

Tumor in her "cell phone area" - I'm sure neurologists haven't really mapped out that as an area of the brain, but it may explain why she is a wacked out lib that takes it upon herself to tell people to vote for a foreign socialist.

Which area did Idiot Joe Biden have lobotomized?

This fits right in with the “Are Democrats Really the “Pro-Science” Party?” thread.

I wish I could edit my post and add this one to my list of crap that primarily only lefties believe in.

And this one reminds me of all the lefties that claim that power lines cause all kinds of medical conditions.

Not much for the tumor to feed on; blood supply is pretty sparse in that neck of the woods. Outside that, Crowe? Flap jacks. that is all.

Okay than I will.

Most likely caused by her finger(s) breaking through the 3 sheets of toilet paper she used to reduce her carbon foot print. This subsequently led to her getting shitty reception on her cell phone

Aren’t phoners the same people (although now a little older) who would wear the old RED LED WATCHES that had ‘cutesy’ alarms and set them to go OFF during the MOVIE at a theatre ?

Sheryl Crow donated her 1959 Mercedes to an auction last year with the proceeds going towards rebuilding schools in Joplin, Missouri after those devastating tornadoes. It sold for $130K and the anonymous buyers matched that amount.

Pics from her early albums looked rough .... she was way skinny, dark eyeliner, looked like a junkie.

She has cleaned up her look big time.

What was she doing with a $130,000 car? Of course she didn’t take the tax deduction.

I think it is hard to tell whether she is a wacky lefty because of her brain tumor, or that being a wacky lefty caused her brain tumor.

I feel sorry for her because she will never have the intelligence to understand much of anything in her world. She was lacking before this, and having brain surgery will not improve her comprehension.

Your question doesn't make any sense - she owned the car, purchased by her with money she earned as an entertainer. As for the tax deduction, she's entitled to it just like everyone else making a donation under those circumstances.

I think the risk from modern cell phones is miniscule compared to the risk from wireless home phones that operate at 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz.
