I'd like my commuters medium-rare, please: A Japanese scientist has found that electromagnetic radiation from cell phones reflects off of the interiors of train cars. The radiation level is such that if a significant fraction of commuters on a train all used their cell phones at once during a busy rush hour, it would be comparable to the radiation generated by a microwave oven set on "low".
