Dennis Kucinich wants radiation levels clearly labeled on your cell phone

Congressman proposes federal labeling in light of possible health effects

If you’re reading this, you probably own a cell phone. And you’re also probably aware of the suspected risks—ones that have been touted by the City of San Francisco and the Council of Europe among others. Finally, you’re probably also aware that as recently as June 2012, the FCC said it was “confident” that the “emissions guidelines for devices pose no risks to consumers.”

Despite all of that (and some of the dubious science on cell phone radiation and electrosensitivity), Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) introduced a bill in Congress on Friday: H.R.6358. Its purpose: “To examine, label, and communicate adverse human biological effects associated with exposure to electromagnetic fields from cell phones and other wireless devices, and for other purposes.”
