If you're going to San Francisco be sure to wear a radiation ioniser in your hair.
Despite a complete lack of proof that mobile phones cause you cancer, the Mayor of San Francisco has decided all phone should carry a health warning.
Mayor Gavin Newsom has decided that San Francisco the first city in the US to require radiation labels for mobile phones. Mobile phone retailers will have to post radiation levels next to each phone in a type face at least as large as the price.
Since most people would have no idea what the radiation levels mean, retailers also would have to inform customers. The federal government has established limits for safe exposure. The Federal Communications Commission says all phones legally sold in the US are safe.
