San Francisco passes pioneering cellphone radiation law
Jun 16, 2010
San Francisco, a U.S. trend setter on many social issues, voted Tuesday to require retailers to post notices on how much radiation is emitted by cellphones they sell.
The Board of Supervisors approved the
ordinance, believed to be the first of its kind in the United States, despite opposition from the cell phone industry which argued that it could impede sales and mislead consumers into believing some phones are safer than others.
