Is This How We Will Use Our Cell Phones in the Future?

If talking on our cell phone is considered hazardous to our health, is standing by a person who is talking on their cell bad for me as well? Would this be considered “passive cellphoner”?

I live in Israel, and currently there is a big issue surrounding passive smoking in bars and restaurants. Recently more and more public places are being fined hundreds of dollars allowing their customers to smoke in their place. Bars and coffee shops are removing ashtrays from the counters and even mall enforcement increased, to make sure the ban stays true.

We are aware of the health issues related to smoking, however we always hear that our daily electronics or products can affect our health as well. I won’t be saying anything new when I mention the claim that cell phones are hazardous to us, and that their reception may cause severe damage in the future. When I go out to public places I always wonder what people do more frequently, smoke? or talk on their cell phone? I believe that cellulars are the winners of this round.

So in this case I wonder, is there a “passive cellphoner” clause? If you talk on the cell phone by me, am I also affected from the reception? Will your excessive use of the cell phone be hazardous to my health?

Perhaps our future will end up looking like the picture below:
