    According to a recent court filing, the CTIA is trying to block a new cell phone ordinance in San Francisco. The new ordinance, called “Cell Phone Right-to-Know”, requires cell phone retailers to post information suggesting that cell phone radiation could cause brain tumors and pose other health risks. The CTIA argues against this and points out alternate studies suggesting that there is no real evidence to support these assertions. Here is what the CTIA had to say about it followed by a link to the full press release below,
    Even though a recent study by the World Health Organization suggested that cell phones could be carcinogenic, there are several other studies pointing to the opposite. In fact several researches studied the WHO report itself and found that there was evidence in it suggesting that cell phones do not cause brain tumors. Share your thoughts in the forums.

    Its a bunch of bull and unless they have medical studies supporting their claims, I'd tell them to piss off too. And even with the notices, I doubt many would listen as most people are glued to their phone as it is.

    This is the "no toys in happy meals" crowd. I wouldn't give much weight to anything they do. I wonder...is Pelosi is a heavy cell phone user? Frozen face, bug eyes, incoherent, they my be onto something

    SF is pretty wacky... Why do _I_ have to live close to them...
    Don't forget, this is the city that tried banning dogs and cats from being pets, then tried to ban goldfish from being sold because of the abuse of keeping them in bowls...
