    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...
