1. Devra Davis Researcher & Author will be in San Francisco, see the below dates. She published the book "Disconnect" on Cell Phone research. A radio interview with her is worth the listen: http://environmentalhealthtrust.org/content/past-events-2010
Summary: She questions exposure to Cell Phones, Smart Meters and Cell Towers, as well as cordless phones, microwaves, etc. She is suggesting smart use of cell phones 6-8 inches off the body, not to put next to your body in your pants or shirt pocket, and use headsets, speakers and texting versus putting to your head. Don't put near your heart. Limit use next to your head to emergency calls if you can. Wireless companies use to have to carefully place Cell Towers, now they tend to pay landowners and place most anywhere.
"Devra, How I wish someone had told us this 23 years ago", says many with suffering family members from cell phone and cell tower radiation causing brain cancers.
