300 million people own a cell phone in the U.S.—including 80% of all teenagers. Studies have shown links between cell phone use and cancers of the brain, nerves, breasts, head and neck. Even though there are ten times as many cell phone users today, the FCC has failed to address growing health concerns. They have not updated their cell phone safety regulation policy since 1996.

Cell phones emit radio frequency (RF) energy, which can be absorbed by skin tissues where the phone is held. There has also been scientific evidence that RF exposure can lead to Alzheimer’s disease, reproductive problems, immune system issues, memory loss, insomnia and headaches.

Stand with organizations like the Breast Cancer Fund and demand that the FCC update radiation safety standards for cell phones.

Petition signed.

"The FCC needs to update minimum exposure levels to ensure the safety of consumers—some cell phones emit eight times more than others. Transparency is key when making decisions that affect our health, and consumers don't have access to this information. Cell phone makers have a responsibility to disclose this data."

Ty, Beverly.
