Motorola Cell Phone Manual

Dear HESA Committee Members,

Attached is a manual for the Motorola cellphone, model 120e. Beginning at page 152, there is quite explicit information indicating “The available science does not allow us to conclude that mobile phones are absolutely safe."

The Guide goes on to list several studies showing that wireless phones can have negative consequences for the user's health. For example, "A few studies, however, have suggested that low levels of RF could accelerate the development of cancer in laboratory animals. In one study, mice genetically altered to be predisposed to developing one type of cancer developed more than twice as many cancers when they were exposed to RF energy compared to controls."
 
In addition to the statements about studies with laboratory animals, the Guide provides statistics about effects of RF on humans. "When tumors did exist in certain locations, however, they were more likely to be on the side of the head where the mobile phone was used." And "that... an association was found between mobile phone use and one rare type of glioma, neuroepithellomatous tumors."

And finally, on page 156, a startling admission: "Under the law, FDA does not review the safety of radiation-emitting consumer products such as mobile phones before marketing, as it does with new drugs or medical devices." Neither does Health Canada nor Industry Canada.
 
Does not this evidence that the cell phone industry is aware of potential harm, call for, at the very minimum, a public warning in the form of a label attached to every wireless device?
 
I find it shameful that the industry itself is being more responsible than Health Canada. Where Motorola is at least admitting that evidence exists indicating harm is possible, everyone at Health Canada and the Royal Society (e.g. Dr. Daniel Krewski) continue to maintain the opposite. Quoting Beth Pieterson and Dr. Krewski, "There is no evidence of harm." It is apparent that Health Canada serves no purpose as far as protecting the public is concerned.
 
Respectfully,
Sharon Noble
