of cancer," according to a report published in the February, 2003 issue of Microwave

therefore that it is not possible at present to say that exposure to RF

sufficient to justify a precautionary approach." The report

Wireless Industry Wants To Raise Radiation
Television news shows broadcast in the United States and Western Europe
during the last half of 1999, combined with additional worldwide news
coverage, has resulted in increased public awareness about the health risks
associated with radiation emitted by mobile phones. Government agencies in
the United States, such as the FCC, FDA and US Congress, and agencies in
other nations, responded with a series of long-term
During the summer of 1999,
Dr. Om Gandhi reported that many mobile phones exceed current radiation
exposure limits in the ear. The current limits are being debated worldwide
because highly respected scientists believe they are already too high.
Despite Dr. Om's report and
numerous studies presenting irrefutable evidence about the health risks,
wireless industry representatives attending an IEEE (Institute of Electrical
and Electronics Engineers) meeting during October, 1999 in Atlanta, Georgia,
proposed to the IEEE's SCC-28 (Standards Coordinating Committee 28),
Subcommittee 4 (SC-4) that the current limits be raised. IEEE's SCC-28
encompasses emission standards from 3 KHz. to 300 GHz.
Motorola and Nokia proposed that "for the general public, the outer ear
should be considered an extremity, similar to the hands, feet, wrists and
ankles, and not a vital organ." The exposure limits for extremities are
higher than the rest of the body, and they continued with "thus it is not
necessary to protect the outer ear against RF exposure at the same level as
the brain. If the limit for the ear is raised, maximum power of phones will
not be limited unnecessarily."
It was reported after the
meeting that the members of SC-4 unanimously supported this proposal.
Phone manufacturers including Alcatel, Ericsson, Hitachi, Mitsubishi and NEC
applied for patents as early as 1992 that included component designs to
lower radiation health risks using various techniques. For example, one
patent application describes a warning device that signals the user when the
maximum permitted output power is being approached so they can stop using
U.S. Senate Bill S.800
The U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives passed Bill S.800 on
August 5, 1999 and October 14, 1999, respectively, to establish '911' as the
national emergency telephone number.
Entitled the `Wireless
Communications and Public Safety Act of 1999', it grants phone carriers and
vendors (phone manufacturers and dealers) the same immunity as wireline
carriers for any liability associated with the use of their products and

U.S. phone safety standards are endorsed by the Federal Communications
Commission (FCC), who admit they "are primarily a regulatory agency and not
an expert on matters pertaining to health and safety."
The Center for Devices and
Radiological Health (CDRH) division of the Food and Drug Administration
(FDA) is responsible for establishing safety standards and ensuring
compliance for radiation emitting products sold in the U.S. that may
endanger public health, yet they were merely an advisor instead of an
authority in any capacity for cellular phones until October 20, 1999.
On that date, a U.S.
nationwide news broadcast exposed information about cellular phone radiation
that resulted in immediate responses from the FCC, FDA and the cellular
industry (CTIA). Despite accusations that the health effects of cellular
phone radiation are being withheld from consumers by the cellular industry
and the government, the FDA proposed a
collaborative project with CTIA to investigate this issue.
