Summary Cell phone radiation is a national emergency. Scientist Devra Davis presents an array of recent and long-suppressed research which shows that the most popular gadget of our age damages DNA, breaks down the brain's defenses, and reduces sperm count while increasing memory loss, the risk of Alzheimer's disease, and even cancer. The growing brains of children make them especially vulnerable--and half of the world's four billion cell phones are used by people under twenty. Davis takes readers through the dark side of this trillion-dollar industry. Health experts have long been frozen out of policy-making decisions about cell phones; federal regulatory standards are set by the cell phone industry itself. One secret memo reveals their war plan against reports of cell phone dangers. As this call to action shows, we can make safer cell phones now. Why put our children at risk of a devastating epidemic of brain illness?--From publisher description.
