Cell Phone Radiation Lawsuit News: Bernstein Liebhard LLP Applauds Groups’ Call for New Cell Phone Radiation Standards
Date:9/7/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) September 07, 2013

Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing consumers in cell phone radiation lawsuits, (http://www.consumerinjurylawyers.com/cell-phone-radiation-lawsuit.html) applauds a new effort by a consortium of health and consumers groups to convince U.S. government regulators to revamp cell phone radiation standards. According to a statement issued on September 3rd, the Environmental Working Group and 11 other public interest organizations have written to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) urging them to update current protocols for wireless devices in order to better protect the health of children; update radiation standards to reflect actual patterns of use; and provide consumers with information about potential radiation exposure from specific phones and networks.*

“A growing body of evidence has linked cell phone radiation exposure to brain tumors and other cancers. Our Firm applauds these organizations for working to bring attention to this serious public health issue,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing the victims of defective drugs, medical devices, and consumer products. The Firm is part of a small consortium of law firms actively representing plaintiffs in cell phone radiation lawsuits. (Case No. 0008533-12, Superior Court, District of Columbia)

Brain Tumors and Cell Phones
According to the statement issued by the Environmental Working Group, the FCC last revised cell phone radiation standards in 1996. Since then, a growing body of research has found evidence of a connection between the development of brain tumors and exposure to cell phone radiation. For example, after the Interphone study found 30 minutes of cell phone use per day was associated with a 40% increased risk for a type of brain tumor called glioma , the World Health Organization’s International Agency on Research for Cancer (IARC) announced it was reclassifying cell phone radiation as possibly carcinogenic.**

The FCC is now conducting a review of its current cell phone radiation emission standards. *** In 2012, the U.S. Government Accountability Office (“GAO”) criticized the Commission’s current standards as being outdated compared to those of international regulatory agencies, and for failing to reflect the most recent research on cell phone radiation.****

Bernstein Liebhard LLP is currently offering free, no obligation cell phone radiation lawsuit evaluations to individuals who may have developed cancerous brain tumors from cell phones.
