Is your cell phone radiating?

First, we should say that there’s a bunch of peer-reviewed scientific stuff that says wireless devices pose no known health risk, and folks like the National Cancer Institute, World Health Organization and U.S. Food and Drug Administration have said as much.

However, there are also independent studies that link cell phone radiation to tumors, including rare childhood brain cancers. So some people are curious as to how much radiation their cell phone is emitting. Although the government collects data on cell phone radiation, cell phone manufacturers don’t have to report it. So the Environmental Working Group decided to find out for themselves. Published at, their report lists the 10 best and 10 worst cell phones for radiation, along with tips for reducing radiation exposure for adults and children.
