I was having lunch in Willow Glen (San Jose, CA.) yesterday and overheard a conversation from the table next to me about why the Tesla was a bad idea. There were 8 young folks (mid 20's to mid 30's) discussing the car and one fellow said he wouldn't touch the car because it would give you cancer.
His argument was that you're sitting on top of a giant cell phone battery and that has been proven to cause cancer. What surprised me was that the remaining 7 (4 men & 3 women) people all chimed in and agreed.
I couldn't contain myself and turned around and told them they had no idea of what they were talking about. I have read all the studies about cell phone battery's and draw the same conclusion of those conducting the studies that cell phones don't cause cancer. I also told them that it's stupid and ignorant people like themselves that is driving this country into the toilet. Needless to say they didn't like my assessment of their moronic view about things they have no basis to make statements about. Fortunately, I was finished with lunch and I left them in the dust when I pulled out of the parking lot.
