Reduce Unnecessary Exposure to Non-Ionizing Radiation from Cell Phones

Reduce Exposure to Non-ionizing RadiationExposure to non-ionizing radiation in the form of electromagnetic fields (EMF) is linked to many adverse health effects, including breast cancer in both men and women, and is supported by decades of scientific research.  One source of continuous daily exposure to EMF is from cell phones in the form of radiofrequency (RF) radiation.

What Can You Do?

The FCC should be required to update minimum exposure levels to electromagnetic fields from cell phones.  Initial industry radiation standards were adopted by the FCC 17 years ago, but have never been revised.  Additionally, consumers should have access to this information to be made aware of the possible negative health consequences of EMFs from cell phones.

Ask FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski to update radiation standards for cell phones and limit Americans' exposure to EMFs.
