Parents ‘ignore mobile warnings’ In this BBC report, echoing a similar front-page story in the Daily Mail, note that:
‘Michael Clarke, radiation expert at the Health Protection Agency, said: “We feel we should discourage prolonged use of mobile phones. There isn’t actually a proven health risk. What we are talking about is the possibility of one emerging after prolonged use. ... I cannot predict what I might find out tomorrow.”’ Did anyone tell you your home DECT gossip phone is both a full mobile phone and a base station?

The industry has arranged (in the US) for it to be ILLEGAL to speak against the technology in any kind of official meeting for any kind of environmental or health reason — (Section 704, Telecommunications Act 1996). Therein lies a single sentence that prohibits anyone from talking about health concerns in ordinances, community planning meetings or anywhere actual votes are taken regarding whether or not to site a cell antenna or tower. That includes all hearings in city hall and county commissions across the USA.
