City Council member warns Brooklyn residents of emissions from cell phones

A City Council member is posting a list of popular cell phones and the radiation they emit.

Council woman Eva Moskowitz helped create the list containing 381 cell phone types and the amount of potentially cancer causing emissions Brooklyn residents absorb when not using a headset.

Most of the cell phones tested were under the legal limit of 1.60 watts per kilogram. However, the two types topping the list were Motorola?s V120e and V60x. In response, a Motorola spokesman says all their phone?s numbers are within FCC regulations.

Moskowitz says she is trying to enforce manufacturers to include radio wave emission information in their advertisements, on their boxes and on the phones themselves.
