Congressman Introduces Bill For Cell Phone Radiation Information
Democratic Ohio Congressman Dennis J. Kucinich has introduced a bill that would require cell phones to warn consumers how much radiation is coming from their phones, saying that until science can disprove a link to cancer, the public should be told more information. His bill, the Cell Phone Right to Know Act (H.R. 6358), would also demand a study of cell phones and health, looking at a broad array of signals that smart phones now send out, ranging from the phone to bluetooth to WiFi. Doesn't sound like a bad idea to us! We were shocked to find out last month that the Apple iPhone 4S emits three times more radiation than Samsung’s Galaxy S III handset. A company called Tawkon have developed a free App that alerts you when your phone radiation level spikes, and offers tips to help you lower it. Rumor has it that the Tawkon App was once directly rejected by Steve Jobs. Apple still has not allowed the app to be downloaded from iTunes. Kind of makes you wonder why they don't want you do download it right?
"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," the Ohio Democrat said. "They also deserve to have up-to-date exposure standards that are put together by health professionals without conflicts of interest."
