Consumer group advises moderation in cell phone use for safety reasons -- but...
An advocacy organization called the “Environmental Working Group” is advocating that consumers moderate their cell phone use, in a press release “Lower Your Exposure to Cell Phone Radiation: Comprehensive Online Guide To Low-Radiation Wireless Devices” with link here" (link here).
NBC Nightly News covered the story, and stressed that the radiation from wireless devices is non-ionizing, much less than a microwave oven or chest Xray. So far there is no evidence that the radiation associated with cell phone use causes tumors.
