SEAL BEACH, Calif. (KABC) — A new cellphone study is stirring up controversy over radiation levels. The report examines the cellphone controversy from an engineering point of view.

Government experts have always contended that cellphones in the United States must comply with the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) standard. Now those measurements are coming into question.
Most people aren’t 6 feet 2 inches tall or weigh 220 pounds. Yet a new report says that’s the model the government uses to test cellphone radiation.

“The standard for cellphones have been developed based on old science and old models and old assumptions about how we use cellphones,” said Dr. Devra Lee Davis, Environmental Health Trust.

A new report from the Environmental Health Trust, a group of researchers promoting awareness of environmental health risks, says this can be concerning news for the rest of us, especially women and children.

“In children and young adults, especially women of shorter stature and petite, the skull thickness is less, considerably less,” said St. Vincent Medical Center neurologist Dr. Fardad Mobin.

Dr. Mobin says the thinner the skull, the more radiation penetrates. And he says the brains of children absorb more radiation.
“Children are in the phase of development. Their brain is more susceptible because of the higher water content to microwave-type energy,” said Mobin.

The government had no specific comment on this report, but the FCC website says: “no scientific evidence currently establishes a definite link between cellphones and cancer or any other illnesses.”
Yet many doctors say all the latest evidence suggests the non-ionizing radiation from these devices may not be inert.

Even when you’re not making a phone call, experts say your cellphone is still emitting some radiation. So what about the woman who keep it on her belt hook or the man who keeps it in his pocket all day long?
Mobin says try to keep the phone 10 inches away from your body. Don’t let it sit on your lap in the car.

Bluetooth devices also emit radiation so you’re better off with wired headphones.
The Environmental Health Trust is calling for the government to do more comprehensive testing on models representing both genders and different ages.

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) — There is new concern about the danger of radiation from cellphones, but the science behind that new warning is being questioned.

The government agency which regulates cell phones says there’s no basis for establishing a different safety threshold, but researchers from a group called the Environmental Health Trust believe the federal testing methods are flawed.

LLoyd Morgan is one of the researchers behind the study that looks at how the Federal Communications Commission sets radiation safety standards for cellphones. They found the FCC’s tests are done on plastic heads the size of a 6 foot 2 inch, 220 pound man, which they say corresponds to just 3 percent of the population.

Because of that, the researchers believe the government’s test underestimates the amount of radiation 97 percent of cellphone users are exposed to. Morgan says children are the most vulnerable.
“Children’s tissues are more absorbent of the radiation, their skulls are thinner, their heads are smaller so they receive dramatically more radiation than adults,” Morgan said.
But many scientists say there are no conclusive studies linking cancer and radiation.

“There are different types; the radiation from x-rays is ionizing radiation, the kind from cellphones is the same from microwave ovens, there is no good proof that that caused cancer,” ABC News Health and Medical Editor Dr. Richard Besser said.

The cellphone industry organization agrees, saying, “The weight of scientific research has not linked the use of cellphones with any health concerns.”
But Monday’s report is unsettling for some cellphone users ABC7 talked with.
“It’s not going to make me put down my cellphone, it’s just one of those other carcinogens we’ll have to deal with,” Karen Tannenbaum said.
Both the federal government and the authors of Monday’s study agree that those who want to reduce radiation exposure can hold their cellphones away from the head and body, or use a speaker or hands-free device.
