Cell phone cancer warning back in the news

We have read cell phone cancer risk warnings in the past but this time a state legislature has proposed a bill that would require warnings.

The bill could make Maine the first state to carry warnings that mobile phones can cause brain cancer, especially among children.

The bill would require manufacturers to put labels on mobile phones and packaging.

Proponents of the bill claim that ignoring the health risks of heavy cell phone use invites a cancer epidemic.

Opponents dismissed research pointing to the risks and claim the bill is more about politics than science.
