SF Requires Cell Phone Radiation Data

Wednesday, 14 Jul 2010 07:42 AM

 

San Francisco has passed the nation's first local ordinance that requires retailers to post radiation-emission data, according to a usatoday.com report.

"There's enough information out there that long-term (cellphone) use may increase the risk of certain kinds of cancer," says Mark Westlund, spokesman for the San Francisco Department of the Environment. "We believe consumers have a right to know" which devices are most and least risky.

Meanwhile, U.S. Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, is busily drafting a
federal bill that would require manufacturers to note on packaging how much radiation models emit.

The Kucinich bill would also call for a national research program to
determine what levels should be considered safe.
