    Quotes from Rep. Boland:

    “If our elected leaders don’t tell the truth–get important information out to people that can allow them to independently make good decisions about their own well being–who is going to do it? “We’re in the situation today where nationwide and even globally, our habitat, our environment, our health has become severely degraded precisely because governments have been asleep at the switch or looking the other way, unduly influenced by industries who are very powerful and sometimes defending irresponsible practices in light of contrary findings that dictate different choices for peoples health. This has got to stop.

    “And we have an opportunity to stop it right here in Maine, with warning labels on cell phones. We really have to focus on the people and trust that industry and its products can be brought into line to work for the people as well as for the owners.

    “Leadership is about taking the path of truth and integrity–naming problems and correcting them without delay. The time is now to warn citizens and especially children and pregnant women about
    the hazards of cell phone radiation.

    “And I want to add that this is not a partisan issue. This is about our health. The health of fetuses and children. Preventing an epidemic of brain tumors. Protecting our DNA. Its a very simple step to put warning labels on cell phones. And I hope that all the representatives and senators in the Main legislature will join me in taking a stand for health education and prevention when it comes to cell phone radiation hazards and proudly support the Children’s Wireless Protection Act.

    “Personally, I am very proud to be from Maine, and I hope on this issue, like on so many others, we will lead the nation to better health.”
