EMF Protection Devices by Cell Phone Manufacturers?

The cellular industry has always maintained the position that cell phones are safe. Despite the $25 million research they funded early on (headed by Dr. George Carlo) that showed evidence to the contrary. (The industry has ceased funding any research and has been known to discourage it.) And you can understand their position: any admission of safety risk will adversely affect their bottom line and probably inspire massive class action suits.

But what do they REALLY think? If it’s any indication, a few big name manufacturers have applied for patents for protective devices that would reduce the radiation from their cell phones, according to a news report back in 2001. One of these patent applications was filed as early as 1995! Here’s the New York Post report on this interesting move by the manufacturers: Cell Makers Eye Device as Radiation Protection.
