Many of us have become so dependent on our smart phones that they have become attached to our hip. Literally. How likely would you be to keep your smart phone right next to your genitals if you were aware that it was emitting frequencies that have the potential to cause negative health effects? Not so smart.
Despite the ignorance of the masses this is exactly the case. Research on the damaging effects of cell phone radiation has been available since before cell phones were released to the public. And those phones produced way less radiation than smart phones. Of course we would all love to conveniently deny the fact that smart phone users are more likely to develop ear, eye and saliva gland tumors related to chronic radio frequency exposure.
Smart Phones In The News
As inconvenient as it is, it is a serious enough issue for the state of California to address it. Check out this article by CBS News. Lets face it, if governments and manufacturers are concerned about the safe use of these devices, the dangers are most likely more apparent than we are led to believe. After all, North American safety standards for safe levels of radiation are set thousands of times higher than has been proven dangerous.
To quote CBS:
The Federal Communication Commission recommends keeping your phone 5 to 25 millimeters away, depending on the model, to limit radio frequency (RF) exposure to safe levels.
“If you carry or use your phone in a pants or shirt pocket or tucked into a bra when the phone is ON and connected to a wireless network, you may exceed the federal guidelines for exposure to RF [radio frequency] radiation,” is part of the proposed language. Retailers would be prohibited from selling phones that do not bear the warning: “This potential risk is greater for children. Refer to the instructions in your phone or user manual for information about how to use your phone safely.”
As usual, the ball is in your court.
