San Francisco Requires Cell Phone Radiation Warnings

| by Michael Allen

San Francisco's controversial new law requiring cell phone retailers to provide radiation information went into effect today. The ordinance requires cell phone retailers to display info about the amount of radiation that comes from cell phones and to provide fact sheets to customers who ask for them.

The law has been discussed and debated in the city for almost two years with former San Francisco mayor, and now, Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom pushing its passage. There is some controversy about how radiation levels are measured and whether cell phone radiation poses an actual threat. The new law gives retailers until the end of the month to comply.
