While the Mainstream Media continues the narrative that radiation from cell phones and other wireless devices poses no health risks, the telecommunications industry is privately singing a different tune to their shareholders.
Companies such as AT&T, Verizon and T. Mobile have warned shareholders that profits could go down as injury from radiation exposure leads to personal injury cases and class action lawsuits.

Government agencies, international health organizations, industry associations and other scientific bodies continue to conduct research on the topic, and there can be no assurance that future studies, irrespective of their scientific basis, will not suggest a link between electromagnetic fields from mobile devices and adverse health effects."
