San Francisco Passes Mobile Phone Radiation Law

A city measure was enacted even though there is no conclusive evidence that cellphones are dangerous.
Imposing roughly the same cautionary standards for cellphones as for fatty food or sugary soda, this city -- never shy about its opinions -- voted on Tuesday to require all retailers to display the amount of radiation each phone emits.
The law -- believed to be the first of its kind in the nation -- came despite a lack of conclusive scientific evidence showing that the devices are dangerous, and amid opposition from the wireless telephone industry, which views the labeling ordinance as a potential business-killing precedent.
