Abstract:

Worldwide, there are two billion people using their cell phones ignoring that the radiations emitted during each call are slowly damaging their brain. Two years ago, phone operators hired Professor Carlo, a specialist in radiation transmissions, to prove that cell phone usage was not putting consumers' health at risk. But Professor Carlo's 28 million dollar survey came up with the opposite conclusion: using cell phones actually increases the chances to develop brain cancer. Of course his study was dismissed by its powerful sponsors. This international investigation takes a hard look at an industry willing to go to any length to protect itself from what is a real time bomb.
