Anyone ever wonder just exactly how much radiation is being emitted from a cell phone? Congressman Dennis Kucinich from Ohio does, and introduced a bill, H.R. 6358, The Cell Phone Right to Know Act which will grant consumers' the right to know just how much radiation is actually coming from their cell phones, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi devices until science can disprove a link to cancer.
- "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."
In a Washington Post article from yesterday, Rep. Dennis Kucinich. had also stated that the World Health Organization has said that “cell phones were "possibly carcinogenic to humans," which the congressman said placed them on the same footing as lead and mercury.”
Parts of the 18 page bill go into details that Kucinich says would keep the on going government research from being tainted (lobbying?) by 'conflicts of interest.'
Online sources reference that a company known as Tawkon have developed a free app that monitors radiation levels while offering suggestion and tips to lower the radiation levels.
