San Francisco Board of Supervisors Goes After Cell Phone Radiation
Seriously. First they outlawed plastic bags and styrofoam packing peanuts, now they want cell phone companies to post the radiation levels of phones in their stores.
San Francisco moved a step closer Tuesday to becoming the first city in the nation to require that retailers post in their stores notices on the level of radiation emitted by the cell phones they offer.
The Board of Supervisors voted 10-1 to give preliminary approval to the proposal. Final approval is expected next week. Supervisor Sean Elsbernd was the lone vote in opposition. Mayor Gavin Newsom, an early proponent of the legislation, plans to sign it into law when it reaches his desk.
Yeah OR if I the consumer cared about how large my brain tumor will be 20 years from now, I could just type my phone's model into Google and find out for myself. And then order some man panties that block dangerous levels of crotch radiation. As if I have my phone out of my hand long enough to affect my delicate machinery.
Fuck you, Board of Supervisors, you have better things to do and you're not giving San Franciscans nearly enough credit.
