GAO criticizes FCC’s standards for cellphone radiation. Hayley Tsukayama. The Washington Post Aug 7, 2012
[excerpted] "The Government Accountability Office on Tuesday called on federal regulators to revamp standards that measure the impact of radiation from cellphones.
The year-long review by the GAO, which was done at the urging of lawmakers, did not suggest that cellphone use causes cancer. But the GAO was critical of the way the Federal Communications Commission has managed its standards, noting that the rules, which had not changed since 1996, lagged behind those of the international community.
The FCC’s regulations “may not reflect the latest evidence on the the effects” of cellphones, the GAO’s report said.

Like many people, Dr. Davis just didn't believe the possibility of cell phones being dangerous?until she studied it. And now, with the toxicological and epidemiological evidence to back up her claims, she's trying to get the word out that cell phone radiation is not only dangerous, but can be downright lethal.In her lecture, Dr. Davis explains how the biological impact of your cell phone is notrelated to its power, which is quite weak, but rather to the erratic nature of its signal and its ability to disrupt resonance and interfere with DNA repair. This is now believed to be the most plausible theory for understanding the wide array of health impacts discovered, which includes cancer...
