Americans aren't overly concerned that cell phone usage may lead to cancer.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 19% of American Adults say they rarely or never use a cell phone to make calls, send text messages and e-mails or use the internet. Fifty-eight percent (58%) use their cell phones at least several times a day, with nine percent (9%) who use it every hour and 10% who use their phone constantly. Another 22% say they use their cell phone only once or twice a day. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
