Tell the FCC that you want real-world data and up-to-date cell phone radiation standards!
The Federal Communications Commission has been TOO LAX in evaluating the science and TOO SLOW in reexamining regulations.
We need to join together to ask the FCC to:
• Modernize its cell phone radiation standards;
• Give people real-world information they need to make informed decisions about their cell phones.
We can only get the government to listen if we all speak with one voice. Please use the form below to send an email to FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski.

Modernize your cell phone standards and give consumers real-world information
Dear Chairman Genachowski,
I want the Federal Communications Commission to modernize its cell phone safety standards and provide consumers with real-world data on how much radiation is emitted by cell phones. Studies conducted by scientists around the world have raised serious questions about the potential for cell phone radiation to cause serious health effects. The World Health Organization has declared that cell phone radiation may be linked to brain cancer. Other research links cell phone radiation to diminished sperm count, sperm damage, altered brain metabolism, sleep disturbance and behavioral changes in children. While this research may not be definitive, I am concerned. I want the FCC's safety standards to reflect current science, address both short-term and long-term exposure to cell phone radiation and adequately protect children's health. I urge the FCC to act quickly to update its safety standards, something that hasn't been done for 16 years. I also want to be able to protect myself and my family by making informed choices about my cell phone and my cell phone network. One important study conducted in 2005 and 2006 found that emission levels can vary by factors ranging from 30 to 300, depending on the network used by a given phone. There are no up-to-date, reliable data available. Nor are there any data on the radiation levels to which I might be exposed under conditions of actual use. American cell phone users need -- now more than ever -- real-world, relevant data on how much radiation their phones emit under various circumstances. Therefore, I also urge the FCC to require that such data on cell phones and networks be collected and disclosed to the public. Sincerely yours,
We will add your signature from the information you provide.
