The SAR rules related to consumer electronic devices are subject to being raised. As stated on my cell phone and cancer page:
http://www.antenna-theory.com/tutorial/cancer/cellphone.php

"Fun Fact: [Europe requires the SAR to be measured over 10 grams and has a limit of 2.0 mW/g. Not only is Europe's limit higher numerically, but averaging over a larger volume makes the SAR spec much easier to pass. This is because the electric field dies off quickly as it enters human tissue. As a result, averaging over a larger volume reduces the average Electric field, making the specification much easier to meet! Hence, the US SAR spec is significantly more stringent than in the rest of the world!]"

As there is no evidence yet for a correlation, as explained in the antenna-theory article above, there is some push to loosen the specification, or at least move it in line with Europes spec. Source link below:
