Skip to comments.Rep. Kucinich calls for radiation warnings on cell phones
Posted on 08/06/2012 11:24:07 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
Rep. Dennis Kucinich has introduced a bill that would require cell phones to warn consumers how much radiation is coming from their phones, saying that until science can disprove a link to cancer, the public should be told more information.
His bill, the Cell Phone Right to Know Act, would also demand a study of cell phones and health, looking at a broad array of signals that smart phones now send out, ranging from the phone to bluetooth to WiFi.
"Consumers have a right to know the radiation levels of cell phones and whether they are buying the phone with the lowest or the highest level of exposure to cell phone radiation," the Ohio Democrat said. "They also deserve to have up-to-date exposure standards that are put together by health professionals without conflicts of interest."

DOESN’T HIS TINFOIL HAT PROTECT HIM?
radiation? How much of what kind? Infra-red? Ultra-violet? SHF, UHF or ionizing? Gamma ray? X-ray?............
What a jackass! Won’t miss him in January. Howz’ ‘bout putting excruciating unborn baby pain notices on aborting “mother’s” patient info forms.
Wonder if he still has his propeller cap that Ostupid gave him when he got his ride on Airforce One.
I am at a time in my life at the age of 65 to really be glad I am this old, because I know the America I grew up in is rapidly becoming no more...and as more control comes more facism...and of course people who dont study history are bound to repeat it and we are in process of the downward decline.
Kaspinach is an example of a good leftist.
He is consistant in his beliefs and has, as a matter of fact, appeared several times on the ‘conservative’ O’Reilly Factor.
His brain has been willed to the Carter Center for unusual brain disorders.
It’s not about consumer protection, it’s about destroying a successful business ..........
He is the ultimate IDIOT/ JACKASS/ and MENTAL MIDGET.
Until proven otherwise, Kucinich is believed to be a dwarf from the planet Pluto.
as long as the same labels have to go on the naked scanners at the airport, I’m all for it
I don’t know, but if it’s ICSTFU radiation, he may have a point.
They already do this! If people actually READ the documentation that comes with their phone, they’d find a page on EM radiation and levels emitted by the phone in specific spectra. It also outlines the max. safe exposure level for each type and specifies if the phone is within that range (I’ve yet to see one that doesn’t).
99% of phone purchasers either never read that documentation or throw it away. That’s on them. This idiot wants to legislate something that people already know or can get if they just did some investigation.
I hear that attitude a lot from people your age and older.
As if your generation was blameless.
Poor choice of screen name.
FReeper Arrowhead1952 calls for dumb@$$ warnings on bills coming out of congress.
Personally I’m indebted to Crazy Dennis.
When he took Cleveland into default, I headed for the exit and never looked back.
There are less totalitarian ways to deal with cell phone emissions as
well as the top secret signals from the Large Magellanic Cloud glaxy.
What he really wanted was a warning label that cell phones attract aliens creating an abduction risk but he had trouble getting co-signers.
My thing has always been “put all the warnings on something you want”. That never bothers me as LONG as I am the one that gets to decide what to ultimately do with that warning.
