In her 2011 book Disconnect,  National Book Award finalist, former senior
White House health advisor and internationally regarded epidemiologist Devra
Davis revealed that the cellphone industry is knowingly exposing us to
dangerous levels of electromagnetic radiation. No small problem when you
consider that of the roughly 7 billion people on this planet, about 6 billion
of us now use mobile phones.
In a recent analysis  for theHuffington Post, Davis examined the cellphone industry's long-term strategy,
devised in the early '90s, to deal with studies showing cellphone radiation damages DNA: "war-game the
science." Noted in a 1994 Motorola memo, this strategy, wrote Davis, "remains alive and well"
today, the latest example occurring just last month. When the World Health Organization's International
Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) published newly detailed documentation for its yearlong 2011 expert
review-which declared cellphone radiation a "possible human carcinogen" (same as lead and DDT)-the
multi-trillion-dollar cellular industry responded by citing a new dubious  report out of Taiwan.
Davis, the founding director of the Board on Environmental Studies and Toxicology of
the U.S. National Research Council, pointed out that the online abstract concludes
"with some highly unscientific language that sounds as though it was crafted
