In Cellular Telephone Russian Roulette, author Robert Kane, a former top Motorola engineer, traces the history of cell phone development (in which he was involved) and analyzes the cell phone radiation bioeffects research base from 1950 to 1996.
Despite industry’s claim to safety, Kane’s report shows that there was much more information available indicating safety concerns than the industry has ever acknowledged.
The work includes a review of:
· The foundations of radiofrequency (RF) radiation research.
· The discoveries of “hot spots” in the brains of mobile phone users and bioeffects from RF exposure by the 1970’s.
· The industry’s influence on “safe exposure guidelines” in order to meet its own product needs.
· The ways research design can be manipulated to bias the outcome of lab studies.
· The red-herring requirement by industry that research must identify a single biological causation mechanism for adverse health effects from RF exposure before science can say there is proven harm.
· The emergence of a PR campaign to mask the risks of cell phone radiation to the user.
This book is jam-packed with information that will be of interest to those who have already gained some familiarity with the RF radiation health issue and are not put off by some of the technical terms used (megahertz, S.A.R., etc.).
