Everyone knows mobile phones are safe. If they weren’t, we’d already know about it, right?

That is perhaps the greatest disconnect of our age. As research scientists are now demonstrating, mobile-phone radiation can damage the human body’s cells — leading to memory loss, an increased risk of cancer, reduced sperm counts, and neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s and possibly even autism. Mobile phones, it seems, are not as safe as we had supposed.

In this riveting exposé, Dr Devra Davis, respected epidemiologist and founding director of the toxicology and environmental studies board at the United States National Academy of Sciences, clearly outlines the dangers posed by mobile-phone radiation — particularly to children, whose growing brains are especially vulnerable.

Drawing on interviews with key players within the trillion-dollar mobile-phone industry and presenting a range of recent and long-suppressed research, Dr Davis makes a compelling case for changing the way we make and use mobile phones. For the close to five billion mobile-phone users worldwide, this truly is essential reading.


‘Davis makes a compelling case.’ The Guardian

‘We've underplayed the possible threat from cell phones for too long ... [Devra Davis] shows the way that industry has been able to twist science just enough to starve off possibility of regulation.’ Time Magazine
