Rep. Kucinich calls for radiation warnings on cell phones
The Washington Times ^ | August. 6, 2012 | Stephen Dinan

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."

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.

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.

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.

Hey Dennis I have wanted a warning every time you came within 10 miles of a voter for the last 40 years and I haven’t seen one yet.

Electromagnetic radiation. Like the kind of radiation a light bulb produces but not in the visible spectrum.

The bill doesn’t show up in Thomas.gov. I’ll bet that the number of cosponsors is equal to his IQ.

Visible light IS electromagnetic radiation. That is my point.

Kuchinich should also call for radiation warnings on light bulbs perhaps.

Sort of like warning of the danger of ‘dihydomonoxide’ (water). Penn and Teller got people to sign a petition calling on the government to ban this dangerous substance!

Ban Dihydrogen Monoxide!

The Invisible Killer
Dihydrogen monoxide is colorless, odorless, tasteless, and kills uncounted thousands of people every year. Most of these deaths are caused by accidental inhalation of DHMO, but the dangers of dihydrogen monoxide do not end there. Prolonged exposure to its solid form causes severe tissue damage. Symptoms of DHMO ingestion can include excessive sweating and urination, and possibly a bloated feeling, nausea, vomiting and body electrolyte imbalance. For those who have become dependent, DHMO withdrawal means certain death.

Dihydrogen monoxide:

is also known as hydroxyl acid, and is the major component of acid rain.
contributes to the “greenhouse effect.”
may cause severe burns.
contributes to the erosion of our natural landscape.
accelerates corrosion and rusting of many metals.
may cause electrical failures and decreased effectiveness of automobile brakes.
has been found in excised tumors of terminal cancer patients.
Contamination Is Reaching Epidemic Proportions!

Quantities of dihydrogen monoxide have been found in almost every stream, lake, and reservoir in America today. But the pollution is global, and the contaminant has even been found in Antarctic ice. DHMO has caused millions of dollars of property damage in the midwest, and recently California.

Despite the danger, dihydrogen monoxide is often used:

as an industrial solvent and coolant.
in nuclear power plants.
in the production of styrofoam.
as a fire retardant.
in many forms of cruel animal research.
in the distribution of pesticides. Even after washing, produce remains contaminated by this chemical.
as an additive in certain “junk-foods” and other food products.
Companies dump waste DHMO into rivers and the ocean, and nothing can be done to stop them because this practice is still legal. The impact on wildlife is extreme, and we cannot afford to ignore it any longer!

The Horror Must Be Stopped!

The American government has refused to ban the production, distribution, or use of this damaging chemical due to its “importance to the economic health of this nation.” In fact, the navy and other military organizations are conducting experiments with DHMO, and designing multi-billion dollar devices to control and utilize it during warfare situations. Hundreds of military research facilities receive tons of it through a highly sophisticated underground distribution network. Many store large quantities for later use.


It’s Not Too Late!
Act NOW to prevent further contamination. Find out more about this dangerous chemical. What you don’t know can hurt you and others throughout the world.
