Two months ago we wrote about a bill in the Oregon Legislature that would require warning labels on all new cell phones sold in the state.

For those worried their smart phone's shining newness might one day be sullied by an ugly warning label, fear not. That measure, Senate Bill 679, is dead. The bill, which would have required labels on cell phones and their packaging warning consumers of the potential dangers of radio-frequency radiation, was introduced by state Sen. Chip Shields (D-Portland). But it didn't make it out of committee.

"Studies to date," Ory said, "do not show a causal association between cell phones and cancer or other harms to humans."
