    I do notice I fart more when DIAD is in hand.

    It's hard to tell if you are being serious or not. If you are your concerns are unwarranted.

    ....and how do you think this device works?

    Is there a "DIAD fairy" that conveys info back and forth from your DIAD to the OMS?

    There was a thread, on this very forum, some years ago in which the poster mentioned that two drivers, in his relatively small center, had brain cancer.

    Take a statistics class and then tell me what the chances of that are.

    When you get through with that tell me what a false plane is.

    I'm waiting.......

    Oh great, another reason for you guys to complain about how hard your job is on your bodies.

    "This job is killing my knees and back," So much more then other labor jobs.
    "The diad gave my cancer." lol. So what, we're all going to die.

    Mechanics are just as bad. "Oh my knees,". How long have been a mech, 2 days?

    All labor jobs are hard on your body. Skilled or unskilled.

    Work caused cancer might be in a different category, no?

    More studies will need to be done. Is the DIAD on consistently, or does it fluctuate? I say this because guys holding the DIAD in the holding pouch might be at a higher risk for testicular cancer for example.

    My diad can glow in the dark. It must be radioactive.

    I have never heard anyone say it is tougher than other labor jobs. But I have heard mgmt say "your knees hurt because you're just getting older. You're probably not grabbing the handrail." That couldn't be further from the truth.

    I guess. You guys breathe in exhaust fumes all day from the older trucks and or dust from driving around with the doors open. Some of those cabs are so dusty, your lungs have to look similar. Not having AC doesn't give you much choice. They should do a study to see how many of you guys end up with COPD. Like coal miners getting black lung. Side effects of the job.

    Not really. Remember there are plenty of jobs that require someone carry a device on them. Plus other jobs are exposed to some levels of radiation.

    Someone who travels often for instance will experience higher levels of radiation due to flying. Concorde, for example, used to carry a radiation sensor in case it got too high. Some business jets as well.
