US Probe On Cell Phone Damage
March 31, 2000

The United States Food and Drug Administration has announced on 30 March 2000 plans to study the safety of mobile phones. 

The move comes amid increasing concern from the public, health advocates and doctors that microwave radiation emitted from the phones may damage brain cells. The debate gained steam in 1999 when a Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association report detailed how microwave radiation travels through the head of cell phone users. The United States is believed to contain more than 80 million of the world's 300 million cell phone users.
