San Francisco gives up the fight over mobile phone warnings

San Francisco gives up the fight over mobile phone warnings

San Francisco’s local officials have proposed a law that requires cell phone makers to display warning stickers on their products. The stickers will warn users as to the amount of energy or radiation the devices transfer to the human body. An industry trade group challenged the proposed law by filing legal action against the city.

According the trade industry group’s lawsuit, the bill is simply a complication. The group argues that the Federal Communications Commission has already established safety levels for wireless radiation exposure. The safety levels are in effect all over United States and no mobile phones sold in the country are allowed to exceed it. San Francisco’s proposed bill in effect requires companies to reveal safety level numbers that are all below the legal limit.

Another ramification the proposed bill would run into is the fact that the exact dose of radiation users receive is dependent on the wireless network the device is on. Though there have been reports and studies pointing to potential health risks wireless radiation bring to users, there are still no clear indications of any established findings.

The court’s injunction effectively binds the bill from ever having any effect. City officials have decided to settle because they felt their chance of success was nil given the initial ruling.
