CTIA Calls for Science-Based Hearing on Health Effects
Posted: 25-Sep-2008 [Source: CTIA]

[CTIA President Steve Largent issues statement expressing support for scientici research on safety issues relating to use of wireless phones.]

Washington -- The Wireless Association® President and CEO Steve Largent issued the following statement today in advance of tomorrow’s House Domestic Policy Subcommittee Hearing into wireless phones and health effects:

“CTIA and the wireless industry take the health of our customers very seriously. That is why the wireless industry has supported scientific research on these issues, and also supports the Federal Communications Commission's strict safety guidelines that apply to all wireless devices that are sold or marketed in the U.S.

“The wireless industry has always maintained that this important issue should be guided by sound science. The available scientific evidence and expert reviews from leading global health organizations such as the American Cancer Society, National Cancer Institute, United States Food and Drug Administration and the World Health Organization reflect a consensus based on published scientific research showing that there is no reason for concern.

“In fact, just yesterday, the U.S. National Institutes of Health's National Cancer Institute stated that ‘... [concerns] that using a cell phone may increase a person's risk of developing brain cancer are not supported by a growing body of research on the subject.’ See page7.

“The public will be well served if tomorrow’s Congressional hearing focuses on the conclusions of peer-reviewed, published science.”

CTIA is the international association for the wireless telecommunications industry, representing carriers, manufacturers and wireless Internet providers.
