Christopher J. Portier, former director of the National Center for Environmental Health, the C.D.C. division that made the changes, disagreed with the decision to pull back the revised version. ‘I would not have removed it,’ he said in an interview.
‘I would have been in support of a recommendation that parents look carefully at whether their children need cellphones or not.’
Dr. Portier, who led the center when the revision process was initiated, said he believed parents should have been presented ‘with enough information to say caution isn’t ill advised, because we really don’t know, and there are enough indicators to say we should be cautious.’
