Disconnect


The World Health Organization recently reported that cell phones may be carcinogenic.

As part of the International Agency for Research on Cancer, 31 scientists from 14 countries reviewed of all the available scientific evidence and found that heavy cell phone use was associated with an increased risk of malignant brain tumors called gliomas.

In her newest book, Disconnect, Devra Davis investigates cell phones, radiofrequency radiation and the effects they have on our health.

This well-researched and well-written book is a must-read for users of wireless technology, parents and policy makers alike. It will change the way you think about what may be your most used device.
