The EWG creates a user-friendly interactive cell phone radiation list

The EWG creates a user-friendly interactive cell phone radiation list
It's the unseen forces that our cell phones emit that sometimes makes you wonder what you're really putting up to your face. For the many popular smartphones that were released recently, such as the Motorola DROID, BlackBerry Bold 9700, and the HTC Nexus One, they apparently are known to have the highest legal levels of cell phone radiation. Sure you can probably reduce that exposure if you mainly rely on them to text and surf the web – even better, utilize the speaker phone or wireless headset. For the constant user requiring to chat with individuals on their handsets, they are probably more at risk than anyone else. With that in mind, the Environmental Working Group (EWG) wants you to be truly informed about cell phone radiation – they have created an extensive user-friendly cell phone radiation list and database that spans more than 1,000 current phones on the market. So before you go out and pick out that perfect handset you've been eying for some time, you'd probably want to check it out on the site to see what you're potentially exposing yourself to. As it stands right now, some of the better smartphones with the lowest SAR (Specific Absorption Rate) levels according to them are the BlackBerry Storm 9530, Samsung I8000 Omnia II, and Samsung Propel Pro. Of all the handsets that are littered throughout all the wireless carriers in the country, the Sanyo Katana II ranks the best as far as cell phone radiation is concerned.

And to think, only two more years before we could cook an egg on our faces. Thanks EWG!

This is ridiculous. Cell phones don't cause near enough radiation to harm a human being. Not even close! This is just the media and companies with a "green" agenda trying to get publicized. For those who doubt my expertise in this field, here are my credentials. I'm an NDT Engineer, certified by the ASNT Level III in NDT in Radiography, Pulse Edi-current, Magnetic Particle, Ultrasound. Nice try EWG...maybe you can fool the uneducated, but anyone with actual knowledge about this stuff is laughing right now.
