Clear Health warnings for cell phone packaging

2,117 Signatures Goal: 100,000

In the mid eighties fewer than 3% of us had a mobile phone. Now more than 5 billion of us use one. It’s a technology, which has exploded into our lives. We use it constantly, continuously. Connecting us to the world and the world to us. It’s our most cherished gadget our most used gadget and potentially our most dangerous.

A mobile phone emits microwave radiation which, when pressed against the head is absorbed by the brain. The amount of radiation the brain absorbs is known as ‘specific absorption rate’ or ‘SAR’ and measured in watts per Kg There is an overwhelming amount of scientific evidence linking this exposure to both brain tumours and cancers.

This evidence is so credible it has prompted the world health organization to upscale the danger ratings of mobile phones to ‘possibly carcinogenic’ and an Italian court has just ruled that a mobile phone was the causal factor in a man developing a brain tumour.

The telecoms companies are more than aware of the dangers. So much so they have protected themselves from prosecution by instructing their customers as to how far from the body they must keep the phone. In some cases its as much as 1 inch!. Unfortunately they feel this information will get in the way of sales, and have hidden it away at the very back of the safety manual where nobody will ever read it or see it. (Take it a look – its back there). And if you want to know the SAR rating for your phone you need to dig around at the back end of their website to find it. This just isn’t good enough.

Different mobile phones give off different amounts of radiation therefore have different SAR ratings. Some are much higher than others. So customers should absolutely have easy access to this information when deciding on their new phone. Its time for the telecoms companies to start taking the safety of its users seriously. Protecting them from harm instead of protecting themselves from prosecution.

We want to see these warnings clearly printed on the front of the mobile phone packing, with the SAR rating visible and explained, not buried at the back of some safety guide or hidden on a website.We are never going to give up our mobile phones. so we need to be aware of the dangers so we can understand how to use the technology safely.

We invite you to sign this petition, which will be handed in to global governments and telecoms companies On April 5th 2013 (mobile phone safety day). The petition demands that the telecoms industry begin doing the following immediately

Placing a clear safety warning on the front of phone packaging, which instructs the user how far to keep the handset from the head and bod

The SAR rating for each phone should be visible on ALL packaging and promotional advertising

    HUMAN's and all Life come's from life and the BEE's and other living being's need their natural life Earth pulse frequencies to be in symbiosis and harmony for the circadian and other magnetic sensing as well as the alpha beta theta delta waves produced and detected by the cell's organs like for example the pineal gland to produce regulate melatonin and other health maintenance subtle chemistry which is being damaged by this micro wave technologies and needs to adopt to be in harmony and mutual symbiosis suitable for life to be healthy.

    Classic example of the dirty word profit, where people put financial gain over health and safety. Disgraceful.

    We need strong and clear legal regulations, insisting that telecoms all post SAR information clearly and visibly in their sales material.
    We need warnings such as the tobacco industry finally needed to comply with, in acknowledging the known links to cancer.
    We need the telecoms to be protecting us from harm, and taking responsibility for taking our safety as consumers seriously... by providing good, clear information about the SAR of their products, right up front, in large, clear and visible print - like right on the front of the mobile phone packaging.
    Thank you.
    Sincerely, deb svanefelt.
