Electromagnetic Safety: How Cell Phone Radiation is Causing Harm
Most people own a cell phone, and in today’s society it would be difficult to function without one. But what if I told you that some studies (often ignored by mainstream media and politicians, surprise!) have found dangers associated with cell phone use?
Cell phone use has been linked to changes in DNA, cancer, and low sperm count. The radiation is especially dangerous to the developing brains in children and adolescents.
According to CNET:
“For a phone to pass FCC certification and be sold in the United States, its maximum Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR level must be less than 1.6 watts per kilogram.”
CNET ranked the top 20 phones with the highest SAR levels and those with the lowest SAR levels. The highest SAR is tied between the Motorola Droid Maxx and the Motorola Droid Ultra, both emitting 1.54 SAR. The VeryKool RS90 has the lowest SAR level at 0.18 SAR.
There are many options available to protect yourself, while still retaining the use of your phone.
- The most obvious method is to use a pair of earbuds with a microphone. They’re cheap and allow you to keep the radiation away from your brain.
- The Pong Case: The Pong Case “strengthens your signal, increases your range, and greatly reduces your exposure to potentially harmful wireless energy.”
- Keep phones away from body parts when not in use.
- Text whenever possible – keeping the phone about a hand’s length away from the body.
