Cellphone radiation ordinance on hold
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- A new San Francisco ordinance requiring cellphone companies to disclose radiation levels is on hold, for now.
The wireless industry obtained a court injunction Tuesday blocking the Cell Phone Right to Know ordinance. The industry contends the First Amendment protects them from having to spread false or controversial messages they don't agree with.
Earlier this year, the World Health Organization said cell phone radiation possibly poses a cancer risk, but admitted there's no hard evidence
The city attorney says the industry is trying to, "keep people in the dark about vital health information."
