Liam Bartlett: Mobile phones and brain cancer — when will we stop to listen?

THE City of Berkeley in San Francisco is famous for its university campus, free speech and free loving. In short, a reputation as one of the most liberal municipalities in the United States.

So probably no surprise that its council members this week unanimously voted for a “right to know ordinance”.

It’s a law about mobile phones that will make Berkeley the first city in the nation to force phone retailers to warn customers about the dangers of possible radiation exposure.

Now, while the telecommunications industry is expected to launch a lawsuit to challenge it, there is no reason why we couldn’t and indeed shouldn’t, follow their lead and enact the same measure here in the interests of public health and the welfare of our children.

The radio frequency radiation (RF) emitted by mobiles has been classified by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) as ‘possibly carcinogenic to humans’.
