If cell phones are so safe., then why are there patents to reduce wireless radiation exposure? more importantly, the wireless industry was presented with these patents. They are fully aware.

Below are excerpts from a court filing in the U. S. cell phone brain cancer lawsuit by LUNDY, LUNDY, SOILEAU & SOUTH LLP and MORGANROTH & MORGANROTH, PLLC . filed in THE SUPERIOR COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA Civil Division Click here for the full filing.
(a) On October 24, 1991, Hitachi received a patent to reduce the cell phone user’s exposure to RF radiation “to prevent the health of the user from being injured.”
(b) On August 11, 1992, Mitsubishi was issued a patent for a cordless telephone designed to “reduce the effect of an electromagnetic wave onto a head of a human body ” by coating the handset with shielding material on the side closest to the user’s head.
(c) On December 26, 1995, Motorola filed a patent wherein “a high magnetic permeability/low reluctance material is incorporated into an antenna to limit radiation, where radiation is not desired.”
(d) On February 20, 1996, Alcatel N.V. was granted a patent “for protecting a portion of the human body of a user of the transmitter against the radiation from said internal radiating system.”
(e) On April 9, 1996, a patent issued to Kevin and Norval Luxon for a shield apparatus which utilizes electromagnetic radiation absorbing materials “disposed about the antenna and portable wireless transmitting apparatus and between the user and the antenna and transmitting apparatus to shield or protect the user from the potentially harmful radiation emissions from the wireless communication apparatus.” The Motorola patent referred to above lists the Luxon patent as prior art. Plaintiff is informed and believes and thereon alleges that the Luxon invention had been presented to Motorola and discussed with its engineers prior to the grant and publication of that patent.
(f) On June 4, 1996, Ericsson received a patent for an output power controller to assure “that the average RF-exposure levels from … cellular hand-held radio telephones do not exceed a predetermined level.”
(g) On August 13, 1996, Catholic University received a patent for the “protection of living systems from adverse effects of electric, magnetic and electromagnetic fields.” The application for the patent states “extensive experimental evidence has shown that exposure to ELF electromagnetic fields can lead to changes in biological cell function. Similar effects have been demonstrated from exposure to modulated microwaves and RF signals. Since ALL ( cell phones) transmit modulated microwave or RF signals the potential induction of bio-effects through the use of these devices is evident.”
