San Francisco loses to cellphone industry – who cares?

Posted Friday, May 10, 2013

Does this really matter? No.

Scientific research has barely given any credence to the idea that cellphone radiation harms your health. There is a lot of debate around whether cellphone radiation harmsĀ  you, but no well recognized & accepted conclusion.

Do you know where there is no debate? Cigarettes. A large majority of Americans use products like cigarettes. Cigarettes say right on the box that they kill you. They have been proven to kill you. Unlike the cellphone radiation health issue, cigarettes have no debate attached to them. 99.9% of the world’s scientific community is in agreement: using cigarettes WILL shorten your life. It says so on the box; yet MILLIONS of regular people smoke them anyway.

It’s not just ignorant, uninformed idiots who smoke cigarettes. Political leaders & businessmen, professors & parents. People from all walks of life, all classes, take part in an activity that does not provide much for them besides cancer, inferior cardio performance, and quicker death

Is it really worth fighting over having radiation ratings advertised next to phones? No. If people will spend $20 a day to put smoke in their lungs that kills them, they sure as hell aren’t going to stop using a device that revolutionizes their life because it may, kinda, sorta, not-really-proven-yet-but-we’re-working-on-proving-it harm your health someday.

Get people to care about the dangers we know about. Then, work on getting people to care about the dang…, well, maybe dangerous, we still have to prove it stuff. Even if San Francisco had won – this would have been a hollow victory.
