Cell Phones & Wireless Technologies: Should Safety Guidelines Be Strengthened?

Cell Phones & Wireless Technologies: Should Safety Guidelines Be Strengthened?

Commonwealth Club of California, Jun 22 2015  

Commonwealth National Podcast:  (3:27:32)
The slide presentations and a video of the meeting will be available soon.

Cell Phones and Wireless Technologies: Should Safety Guidelines Be Strengthened to Protect Adults, Children and Vulnerable Populations – and Should Parents, Teachers and Schools Restrict Technology Overuse among Children? 

In the wireless generation, people have embraced and accommodated the cellphone, but how much physical harm could a tiny wireless device cause?

A panel of distinguished researchers will review the science of cellphone risk, mechanisms of action, new genetic questions, and whether the IARC warning should be upgraded to "probable carcinogen" – or even "carcinogen." Special focus will be put on risks to children and the role overuse of wireless technologies may be playing in attention, functional and relational difficulties and risk to the elderly, where cognitive decline might be misconstrued as dementia.
