Writing in the New York Times, Maureen Dowd wonders if cell phones could be the next cigarettes.
One study that followed people who began using cells as teenagers calculated a 400 percent increase in brain tumors after 10 years.
San Francisco has become the first city in the U.S. to pass legislation making cell phone retailers display radiation levels. The reaction of Big Business has been predictable. According to Dowd:
"CTIA -- The Wireless Association ... issued a petulant statement that after 2010, it would relocate its annual three-day fall exhibition, with 68,000 exhibitors and attendees and '$80 million' in business, away from San Francisco ... So now we have Exhibit No. 1,085 illustrating the brazenness of Big Business."
Dowd proposes that they should be sending Gavin Newsom, San Francisco's Mayor, a bottle of good California wine instead, for caring about whether kids' brains get fried.
