The radar guns have a low level emmision (so that they can be instant on). Long term exposure is believed to have caused these cancers.
OTOH, radar detectors, are recievers. Don't know that any have any RF emmisions.
All a mute point since Laser seems to be more in style.
Yes, it's true.....radar detectors can make you sterile and also do damage to the air filter on certain 5 series models......

I just bought a 1995 525IT and see in the handbook that I am not supposed to use a portable cell phone, or a radar detector. Is it true that using either one could damage anything electronic in the car? I have a friend who uses both in his & hasn';t noticed any problems.
I'm sure this has come up before on the forum, but I can't find it & I am new at this.
