Cell Phone Radiation

I have posted several times about the potential dangers of cell phone EMF (radiation) discharges, especially when phones are held to the head rather than using a wired or air-tube earpiece. (Bluetooth earpieces don't qualify as they are wireless.) San Francisco has now become the first city to mandate that cell phone retailers list the amount of radiation discharged by the phones they sell in the interest of consumer safety. While I would never be quick to cite San Francisco as a model of what's reasonable, I mention SF's action only to say that this issue isn't going away. If you are a cell phone user you owe it to yourself to be aware of the dangers and available workarounds. Read the San Francisco article here.
