FCC May Start Investigating Cellphone Radiation And Its Effects

Cellphone radiations and the its alleged effects have been cited numerous times by different people but so far, a sophisticated study and research into the authenticity of these claims hasn’t been made. Since the wireless devices are increasing by millions each month, it is now pertinent that so be done.


The good thing is that U.S. Federal Communications Commission seems well aware of this need. FCC’s Chairman, Julius Genachowski, has now proposed that a proper investigation be carried out to discern whether or not wireless radiation can cause cancer and if so, how can they be regulated in a better way.

To take the inquiry further, the proposal needs to be approved by four other commissioners on FCC. Moreover, if the inquiry goes further, a specific focus would be to see if children must be provided with specialized wireless devices which will have less adverse effects.

According to FCC Commissioner, Robert McDowell, “The great weight of the most credible scientific evidence tells us there is no causal link between cellphone usage and brain tumors. Nonetheless, it is prudent to reassess our methodology and procedures from time to time, provided we don’t cause unwarranted concern among cellphone consumers along the way.”

The chief contention lies between health groups and wireless carriers. Wireless carriers insist that wireless radiation is not adverse to health at all where health group continue to demand a formal investigation into the issue. In light of this, an investigation by FCC into this matter will be really a great step in that it will resolve the debate, at least for the time being.
