Settlement in favor of oil field workers in FLSA overtime case
All cell phones emit a form of radiation known as radio frequency waves. While less harmful than ionized radiation (like gamma rays or x-rays), RF waves do have the potential of affecting adjacent tissue—in this case, the tissue in your brain and neck. As a result of recent studies on RF wave emissions, Berkeley, CA has asked phone manufacturers to provide consumers with warnings about the radiation that cell phones emit.
While the occurrence of brain tumors is fairly rare, rising usage of cell phones means that more people will be facing the harmful side effects of RF waves and smartphone radiation. If you are dealing with a brain tumor or cancer due to cell phone use, our attorneys know how to help you seek justice. With decades of experience in personal injury, the firm of Bailey Cowan Heckaman PLLC can handle your case with seasoned skill and an aggressive approach.
The possibility of cell phones causing cancer is not a new concern and has been a concern for many years. In 2011, the IARC (International Agency for Research on Cancer, part of the World Health Organization) selected a group of individuals to review any and all evidence surrounding phone usage as a potential carcinogen. The review found cell phone use as “possibly carcinogenic to humans.” This conclusion was based on evidence from studies including studies on radiofrequency radiation and rodent cancers, and mechanistic studies.
Another study conducted by the National Toxicology Program (NTP) also found a cellphones and cancer to be possibly linked.
Phone manufacturers have a responsibility to ensure their products are safe for use. While researchers and developers have known for years about the RF waves given off by phones, consumers are only now learning about the effects of cell phone use. The World Health Organization labeled cell phone radiation as “potentially carcinogenic” as recently as 2011.
