Knesset backs bill requiring cell phones to bear health hazard warning
The labels will read 'Warning - the Health Ministry cautions that heavy use and carrying the device next to the body may increase the risk of cancer, especially among children.'
A bill requiring all cellphones sold in Israel to bear a health-hazard warning label passed its first of three readings into law on Wednesday.
The bill, sponsored by MK Dov Khenin of Hadash and Yulia Shamalov Berkovich of Kadima, won blanket approval in parliament. It also requires all advertisements of mobile phones to bear the warning.
