Congress wants more info on cell phone safety

John Moe Jun 2, 2011

After the World Health Organization’s recent findings about cell phones and it’s possible connection to cancer, lawmakers on the Hill are asking the Government Accountability Office to look into research on the issue. From Post Tech: “Reps. Ed Markey (D-Mass.), Henry Waxman (D-Calif.) and Anna Eshoo (D-Calif.) said that nearly a decade as passed since the federal government’s last comprehensive report on cell phone safety. That report was used for device radiation standards at the Federal Communications Commission and for studies at the National Institutes of Health and the Food and Drug Administration.”
