Joel Moskowitz: “Cell Phone Radiation Is Harmful, But Few Want To Believe It”.
If you’re concerned about cell phone radiation and the effect on your health, this article published in the Berkeley News is worth reading.
“People are addicted to their smartphones,” said Moskowitz. “We use them for everything now, and, in many ways, we need them to function in our daily lives. I think the idea that they’re potentially harming our health is too much for some people.

Joel Moskowitz, Ph.d is a researcher in the School of Public Health at the University of California, Berkeley.
H.R. 6358, introduced by Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio), is a bill to grant a consumer’s right-to-know, by providing for warning labels on cell phones.
The bill would create a new national research program to study cell phones and health, and would require the Environmental Protection Agency to update the outdated Specific Absorption Rate (SAR). The current standards are 16 years old.
In 2011 the World Health Organization concluded that there was sufficient evidence to classify cell phones as “possibly carcinogenic to humans.”
Because of the differences in bone density, children are more vulnerable to cell phone radiation than adults, and are subject to absorbing higher levels deeper into their brain.

In an effort to raise awareness, and protect public health, the city of Pembroke Pines, Florida recently passed a unanimous resolution to warn its residents that cell phone radiation may be dangerous, and linked to cancer.
The resolution was inspired by Jimmy Gonzalez, a Pembroke Pines resident, who had brain tumors removed from the same region he uses his cell phone, just above his left ear, and his left hand.
The FCC (Federal Communications Commission), responsible for establishing cell phone safety standards, is long overdue in reassessing the limits on cell phone radiation. The current standards are 16 years old.
A warning to the wise: even if you’re sceptical, take precaution when using your cell phone. Better safe, than sorry. Some types of brain tumors are fatal.

Cell phones and brain cancer? Until we know for sure, Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) has introduced HR 6358, the Cell Phone Right To Know Act, a bill to grant a consumer’s right-to-know by providing warning labels on cell phones.
“Consumers have a right to know the radiation levels of cell phones and whether they are buying the phone with the lowest – or the highest level of exposure to cell phone radiation. They also deserve to have up-to-date exposure standards that are put together by health professionals without conflicts of interest,” said Kucinich.
