6. What is the FDA doing to find out

more about the possible health

effects of wireless phone RF?

The FDA is working with the U.S.

National Toxicology Program

and with groups of investigators

around the world to ensure that

high priority animal studies are

conducted to address important

questions about the effects of

exposure to radiofrequency

energy (RF). The FDA has been a

leading participant in the World

Health Organization International

Electromagnetic Fields (EMF)

Project since its inception in 1996.

An influential result of this work

has been the development of a

detailed agenda of research needs

that has driven the establishment

of new research programs

around the world. The project

has also helped develop a series

of public information documents

on EMF issues. The FDA and the

Cellular Telecommunications &

Internet Association (CTIA) have

a formal Cooperative Research

and Development Agreement

(CRADA) to do research on wireless

phone safety. The FDA provides

the scientific oversight, obtaining

input from experts in government,

industry, and academic

organizations. CTIA funded research

is conducted through contracts

with independent investigators.

The initial research will include both

laboratory studies and studies of

wireless phone users. The CRADA

will also include a broad assessment

of additional research needs in

the context of the latest research

developments around the world.

7. How can I find out how much

radiofrequency energy exposure

I can get by using my wireless


All phones sold in the United

States must comply with Federal

Communications Commission (FCC)

guidelines that limit radiofrequency

energy (RF) exposures.

The FCC established these

guidelines in consultation with
