Cell Phone Radiation: The Five Best and Worst Devices

Iowa Sen. Tom Harkin, chairman of the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee, said Sept. 14 the Senate plans to investigate the possible links between cell phone use and cancer. The World Health Organization and National Cancer Institute have said there is little clear evidence to prove the linkage, but the EWG (Environmental Working Group) and other organizations believe the evidence is compelling. According to the EWG here are the five safest phones for radiation emissions and the five worst.
