The Cellular Podcast investigates the long-term health effects of cell phone radiation with interviews from leading health experts, industry insiders, and brain tumor victims. It is produced by Ellie Marks, Kevin Kunze, and the California Brain Tumor Association.
Ellie Marks Ep 5: Ellie Marks has been advocating for cell phone safety legislation since her husband’s tumor diagnosis in 2008. She inspired San Francisco’s Right to Know bill which was the first cell phone radiation safety bill in the nation. Ellie also testified to Congress about her husband’s tumor and has personally inspired hundreds of brain tumor survivors and their families through her non-profit California Brain Tumor Association.
Alicia Mitchell Ep 4: On today’s episode we’re interviewing Alicia Mitchel Murray, the daughter of Michael Murray who set in motion the now famous Murray vs Motorola lawsuit, which is currently being heard in the DC Superior Court.
Bret Bocook Ep 3: On today’s episode we’re going to take an indepth look into a major lawsuit filed by brain cancer victims against the cell phone companies they say caused their cancer. This case is currently being heard in the DC Superior Court. I first heard about this lawsuit when I interviewed Bret Boccok, an attorney and one of the plaintiffs in this case.
Gavin Newsom Ep 2: This week we spoke with California Governor Gavin Newsom who became interested in cell phone radiation back in 2009 when his wife Jennifer became pregnant. At the time, Newsom was the Mayor of San Francisco and endorsed a bill that would require cell phone retailers to label devices with radiation levels.
Heiko Strehlow Ep 1: Heiko Stehlow works for CETECOM an international exposure testing lab whose clients include Apple, Google, and nearly every major cell phone major manufacturer. This insider is about to pull back the curtain on how cell phones are tested for safety. What you're about to hear was recorded nearly a decade ago and has never been released to the public.
Ellie Marks is a brain tumor activist and founder of the California Brain Tumor Assocation. Marks' husband, Alan, was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2008 that doctors attributed to radiation from his heavy cell phone use. Ellie testified to The Congress at the invitation of Congressman Dennis Kucinich. In 2014, she produced the documentary Mobilize. A year later, she worked with Berkeley City Council to pass a cell phone safety bill and as a result, Berkeley Cell phone stores started to give information about RF radiation.
