    Did the Newly Appointed FCC Chair Subvert Research Showing Harm From Cell Phone Radiation?

    From Joel M. Moskowitz

    The Senate just confirmed Tom Wheeler’s nomination to be the next chair of the Federal Communications Commission. Hence, my press release from May 28th of this year about Mr. Wheeler has greater import now.

    The press release cites allegations of misbehavior made by a major wireless industry publication about Mr. Wheeler when he was president of the industry association, the CTIA, from 1992 to 2004. More specifically, it alleged that he suppressed and biased the research from the nation’s largest mobile phone health research project.

    The appointment of Mr. Wheeler at this time is particularly troubling because the FCC is under pressure from the industry to change the cell phone radiation limits in the U.S. to the international limits which provide less protection to cell phone users. However, the toxicologic and epidemiologic research now strongly suggests that the current radiation limits are inadequate and must be strengthened, not weakened.
