4 billion folks around the planet own cell telephones. As the marketplace for new devices has grown, so have worries about the security of cell telephone radiation.
Latest studies find noticeably higher hazards for brain and salivary gland cancers among folks using cell telephones for ten years or longer. The state of the science is provocative and discouraging, and plenty more research is critical. We at Environmental Working Group are still using our cell telephones, but we also reckon that till scientists know much more about cell telephone radiation, it’s smart for buyers to buy telephones with the lowest emissions.
The U.S. Executive ought to want cell telephone corporations to pigeonhole their products’ radiation output so that clients can do the numbers at the point of sale. It does not, so EWG has created this user-friendly interactive online guide to cell telephone emissions, covering over one thousand telephones now on the market.
