Cell Phones and Brain Cancer: American Academy of Pediatrics Endorses Cell Phone Right to Know Act
Amid growing concerns of a possible connection between cell phones and brain cancer, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has endorsed The Cell Phone Right to Know Act, Bernstein Liebhardreports, a New York City law firm representing consumers in class action lawsuits. [via PRWeb]
The Act, which is sponsored by Rep Dennis J. Kucinich of Ohio, provides for cell phone radiation warnings on mobile phones. It would also create a new national research program to study cell phones and health and require the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to update the outdated Specific Absorption Rate (SAR).
In a letter to Rep. Kucinich informing him of the group�s endorsement, the AAP expressed concerns that exposure to cell phone radiation might be especially dangerous for pregnant woman and children.
