Coming soon to Israel: cell phone hazard warnings.

Looks like Israel will join India in working to keep the public educated (and healthy): the country's parliament is on its way to passing a law that will require all cell phones and cell phone advertisements to include health hazard warnings.
The bill passed with blanket approval in one of three voting sessions by the Israeli Knesset, as reported in Haaretz.
Good thing to do in a country where (in 2008) there are over 9 million cell phones for over 7 million people!
The hazard labels would read: "Warning - the Health Ministry cautions that heavy use and carrying the device next to the body may increase the risk of cancer, especially among children."
This is a big step towards global mobile awareness in yet another country.
