FCC May Take Up Issue of Cell Phone Radiation

The FCC could consider a request to revisit the issue of cellphone radiation if the commissioners agree on the request from FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski. The request is in response to several recent studies on cellphone radiation and would be a reaffirmation of the standards set forth by the FCC in 1996.

In May 2011 the World Health Organization added cell phone radiation to a list of possible carcinogens, putting it in the same category as lead, chloroform and coffee, and said more study is needed.
