Cell phone radiation bill goes to supes 

The Board of Supervisors will today consider the mayor’s legislation that would require retailers to notify consumers of cell phone radiation levels.

San Francisco would become the first city in the world to require such labeling in stores, under Mayor Gavin Newsom’s legislation. The City Operations and Neighborhood Services Committee last month recommended its adoption 2-1, with Supervisor Sean Elsbernd voting against the proposal.

Business advocates are against the proposal since retailers are not experts on radiation levels and it is not clear whether cell phone radiation poses health risks.
