SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) After keeping it hidden for years, Californias Department of Public Health has released a draft document outlining health officials concerns about cellphone radiation exposure.
The previously unpublished document was released this week after a judge indicated she would order the documents be disclosed in the case Moskowitz v. CDPH.
Joel Moskowitz, Ph.D., who is the director of the Center for Family and Community Health at UC Berkeleys School of Public Health, sued the state in 2016 under the California Public Records Act to get the document released.
The document is dated April 2014, but Moskowitz says the document was originally prepared seven years ago and updated several times, but never released to the public.
He previously told KPIX 5 why he decided to sue the state.
I would like this document to see the light of day because it will inform the public that there is concern within the California Department of Public Health that cellphone radiation is a risk, and it will provide them with some information about how to reduce those risks, Moskowitz.
The two-page document, which the Department of Public Health first emailed to the San Francisco Chronicle on Thursday afternoon, looks like any other fact sheet released by the state, except that this one has, in big bold letters Draft and Not for Public Release stamped across the pages.
Among the information in the document, which is titled simply, Cell Phones and Health, are summaries of scientific studies that suggest long-term cellphone use may increase the risk of brain cancer, among other health problems.
The draft fact sheet states that radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (EMFs), a type of radiation, are emitted from cellphones and that because they are used frequently and kept close to the head and body, cellphone EMFs...

Anything coming out of California is pure BS
“California Department of Public Health”
Yeah, that’s a reliable source.
Cell phones cause global warming!!
See who “shorted” Apple prior to the release of this press release?
I read the so called fact sheet and there were no facts. Stupid Californian’s.
Second hand smoke from cigarettes will absorb the radiation from cell phones.(True Dat!)
I’m gonna die!
And they think the rest of us are stupid enough to believe these “facts”. Hehe
Now, we are told it's killing them. I'm failing to see the down side...
This is the same country which exported millions of its jobs, then forced everyone to buy s**t from Communist China etc, which sells us back products with little or no RF shielding. Like these imported Plasma TVs. Those things will give you a tan just sitting in front of them.
“Gov. Brown calls on legislature to ban cell phones and wireless headsets.”
(I hope, I hope, I hope!)
from the report:
“...and not carry it in your pocket or directly on your body, unless it is off.”
Wouldn’t this defeat the very purpose of a cellphone? How can someone reach you in an emergency if the cellphone is off?
Actually, I seldom see anyone using a cellphone as a phone .. as a nation we surely have the fittest thumbs on earth.
I’m not so quick to dismiss it. My cousin was a telemarketer for years, and used a cell phone all day. He died from a brain tumor that was located exactly where used his cell phone. It could have been coincidence, but we just don’t know enough about long-term exposure to EM radiation to know for sure.
We're all gonna die!!
A seven year old study? Isn’t that ancient in terms of cell phone technology?
In CA they need to put little timers on the phones which automatically shuts them down after the allotted or approved use time expires.
California is mexican for greasy ass crack.
