GAO Wants To See Cellphone Radiation Standards Updated by FCC

Posted on

The Government Accountability Office has released a report stating that cellphone radiation standards need to be updated.  It has been 15 years since limits were first implemented, and technology has evolved since that time.  Currently, federal standards as mandated by the FCC don’t take into account longterm exposure, the effect on children, and they let up to 20 times more radiation reach a person’s head than the rest of their body.  The GAO wants the FCC to reevaluate their requirements for radiation, as well as how best to measure such.
