The Board of Supervisors of San Francisco, California has passed a first-of-its-kind law mandating that retailers educate their customers how much radiation the cellphones they sell emit, according to a report by the Washington Post.

"San Francisco has gotten out front on a number of issues historically," said John Walls, an industry spokesman, "but in this case, we are concerned they are leading the pack down a wrong and misleading road."
