Shelly Kalnitsky

A little over ten years ago, Boca Raton resident, Shelly Kalnitsky, was watching ABCs 20/20, when he saw a twenty minute feature story on the dangers and potential risks of cell phone usage. The news show interviewed lobbyists and wireless representatives, who all denied there was a problem.

Kalnitsky was compelled to learn more about what he had just heard. He began researching the world news regarding cell phones and discovered that information abroad included studies conducted by prominent scientists, who reached very different conclusions than what is being reported in the U.S.

Kalnitsky got very concerned, especially about the danger to children, misinformation about hands-free kits and a lack of independent and unbiased reporting on cell phone issues. Kalnitsky was so disturbed by what he found, that he established the Cell Phone Radiation News Bureau, a one-stop information center and source for learning more about the potential health risks from cell and cordless phones. This bureau is intended to keep the public consumer informed and to prevent future health-related problems from cell phone use.

As director of the Cell Phone Radition News Bureau, Kalnitsky felt that there must be something he could do to protect people from this harmful radiation.
