Public Health Expert Dr. Devra Davis to Discuss Cell Phone Radiation, Effects on Children on Thom Hartman Radio Show

Teton Village, WY -- (SBWire) -- 07/02/2013 --Dr. Devra Davis, award-winning scientist and founder of the Environmental Health Trust (EHT), will be a guest on the Thom Hartman Radio program Wednesday, July 3, at 1:45 p.m. EST/4:45 p.m. PST, to discuss cell phone radiation and its effects on children.

Dr. Davis will discuss her developing work with children and cell phone radiation in collaboration with both Dr. Hugh Taylor, a Yale University obstetrician and gynecologist and former president of Microsoft Canada, Frank Clegg, who recently joined Dr. Davis at a public forum at La Grua Center sponsored by Electromagnetic Health. The experts warned the public about cell phone and wireless internet radiation and its effects on children’s brains, which cause problems with perception, memory and sleep, among other vital functions. How cell phone radiation may affect male fertility will also be on the docket, as men commonly store their cell phones in their front pockets.

Additionally, Hartman’s listeners will learn from Davis about new findings from her current paper, co-penned by renowned public health experts, Santosh Kesari, MD, PhD, Chief of Neuro-oncology at the University of California San Diego, and Anthony B. Miller, MD, Professor Emeritus of Public Health at the University of Toronto. The paper, which may be found here, notes that cell and cordless phone radiation significantly increased risks for brain cancer, tumors of the acoustic nerve, salivary gland cancers in the cheek, and leukemia.
