Apple and Samsung facing class action suit due to handset RF radiation emissions



Apple and Samsung are about to face a class action suit. In court documents filed last Friday in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, the smartphone giants are accused of exceeding the legal RF emission limits set forth by the Federal Communications Commission.

In the class-action suit, it reads “Numerous recent scientific publications, supported by hundreds of scientists worldwide, have shown that RF radiation exposure affects living organisms at levels well below most international and national guidelines.”

Also, the class action complaint said: “Effects include increased cancer risk, cellular stress, increase in harmful free radicals, genetic damages, structural and functional changes of the reproductive system, learning and memory deficits, neurological disorders, and negative impacts on general well-being in humans.”

The defendants of the class action suit are being sued for “negligence, breach of warranty, consumer fraud, and unjust enrichment, seeking actual damages, the costs of medical monitoring, restitution and injunctive relief.”
