    More well written articles like this are needed very badly to help educate a public that has been shielded by the industry from information about their wireless devices.

    Last year, “Marketplace”, a CBC investigative program, asked many people if they had ever read the warnings in their phone manuals, and most had no idea there were any. The telecoms are counting on this.

    As well, CBC tested the 3 top-selling phones and all 3 exceeded the Canadian exposure limits, which are similar to those set by the FCC.

    Thank you for this well researched article.

    I would add that the French government tests #phonegate on hundreds of cell phones – released last year- document that phones at body contact can exceed FCC radiation limits- further establishing the Berkeley Cell Phone Ordinance as factual.
