Since the earliest stages of the development of cell phones the telecom industry has claimed that the only risk to human health was thermal, the heating of the head where a cell phone was placed.

The 1996 FCC standards for permissible levels of radiation from cell phones was based upon this model: a mannequin head modeled on a 220# male and larger than 97% of the population filled with saline water and sugar, and the cell phone was held about one inch from the model head for six minutes.

The scientist who was developing this test, Om Ghandi at the University of Utah, advised the industry that the thermal radiation effect on children's developing brains was 5 to 10x the effects upon an adult's. The industry's response was to promptly fire him, cancel his research project and attempt to discredit him.

This response from an industry to discredit science when profits are threatened by scientific findings is common and well documented.

However, earlier there had been another direction in research into electromagnetic radiation. Scientists at a Cornell lab in 1960 found that EMR (or EMF) causes non-ionizing radiation of cells. This effect is far more pervasive and destructive because the radiation from cell phone towers affects everyone regardless of whether they have a phone to their head.

This is a pollutant we can't see or smell but it impacts every living cell (human, animal, and plant). When we begin to feel it the most common symptoms include: burning, itchy skin; headaches; anxiety; sleep disorders, and much more bad news.
