SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Cellphone companies will have to start giving customers in San Francisco more information about the possible dangers of radiation.
Tuesday afternoon, the Board of Supervisors passed a law that requires
cellphone makers to include fact sheets warning people about the amount of
radiation each handset emits.
Supporters believe there's enough evidence of a link to brain damage, to make
the warnings worth it.
CTIA (The Wireless Association) says scientific data does not justify this.
The industry released a statement saying quote, "this ordinance misleads
consumers by creating a negative perception of a product that already complies
with federal standards."
