Kennedy also is on the legal team representing the Walker family, which names Motorola, AT&T, ZTE Corporation, Cricket Communications and the Telecommunications Industry Association as defendants.
According to the lawsuit, the defendants “downplayed, understated and/or did not state the health hazards and risks associated with cellphones” — even though they knew about them.
The lawsuit accuses the defendants of fraud, unfair trade practices, designed defects, inadequate warning and misrepresentation.
“The public is not being told the truth,” Lundy said. “People hold that cellphone next to their brain. The temporal lobe is the lobe surrounding the side of the brain of the ear, which gets the most exposure.”
According to Kennedy, cellphones transmit “dangerous carcinogenic radiation” even when people aren’t using them.
“The more apps you have on your phone, the more radiation is being transmitted,” Kennedy said. “Those apps are in communication with the tower all the time.”
Lundy said peer-reviewed studies show cellphone radiation affects not just the brain, but also other parts of the body. “There are studies that show men that put the cellphone in their pocket have a reduction of sperm count,” he said.
Research also shows women who put their cellphones in their bras “when they were exercising, jogging, they started showing up with tumors,” Lundy said.
Kennedy shared that there is a series of patents going back to the 1990s that show the telecommunication industry was patenting technology to “protect human tissue from radiation that they knew was emanating from their cellphones and destroying human cells, mutating them and it causing tumors.”
Since the industry would have to admit what it did was wrong, the patents ended up being shelved.
Lundy’s law firm is in possession of those old patents and is using them as evidence in the Walker case.
