He looks at three popular mobile phone stories. In brief;
1) Marty concludes that mobile phones don't cause brain tumours - but studies are ongoing.
2) Do mobiles cause explosions at petrol stations? Marty says it's not mobile phones, but static electricity that can ignite petrol. He says phones shouldn't be used when you're filling the car because they're a distraction.
3) Should you make calls on the hospital ward? Marty discovered that in some special circumstances mobile phones can interfere with hospital equipment. So keep mobiles out of cardiac wards and if in doubt, ask.
