Tom Wheeler, new chairman of the F.C.C. suppressed research on the health effects of cell phone radiation

President Barack Obama put "Wolf in sheep's clothing" when he appointed the former chief lobbyist for the wireless industry to chairman of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), which regulates the safety of wireless devices.

This is yet another astonishing conflict-of-interest in the choice of appointed Federal Regulators, who better resemble wolves guarding the sheep, rather than advocates for the health of the public at-large.

Tom Wheeler, head of the CTIA from 1992-2004, has been appointed to Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). This is no different then having a tobacco CEO appointed as Surgeon General of the United States.

Tom Wheeler made his living defending the wireless industry from allegations of health hazards even when the scientific data showed a link between cell phone radiation and cancer.

RCR Wireless News, an industry publication, alleges that Mr. Wheeler suppressed and biased the research from the nation's largest mobile phone health research project while he served as head of the CTIA, the wireless telecommunications industry association.
