I am sure somebody has better information or facts, but I would imagine that it is non-existent due to the fact that the headsets are sounds waves into the ears. The problems with cellphones is the signal that has to go to the phone that is right next to the head. Again, this is just my opinion and I hope someone has a bit more concrete answer for you.

No they dont!! The radio is in the cockpit controls of the plane, and the antenna is on the outside of the plane.

There is no cancer danger from the headphones.
