See if your cell phone is among the best or worst phones when it comes to radiation levels

Earlier today we showed you how to determine your cell phone's radiation level.

Now that you know how safe or unsafe your handset is, it will be good to know where it sits among the best and worst phones in the country.

The Environmental Working Group (EWG) maintains a database of all U.S. carrier-offered cell phones and tests them all for radiation levels. This data is publicly available of course, and the group maintains a list of the best and worst phones when it comes to radiation.
