A new study published in Clinical Neurophysiology suggests it doesn't take years or even months of exposure for cell phone radiation to negatively alter our brains—it only takes minutes. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24012322
RF Safe is going on record to correct mainstream media's reporting that using a wired-headset is a good way to lower phone radiation exposure to the brain. As this most recent study has proven cell phone radiation exposure does effect the brain under even low exposure levels. It is imperative that the public understands the truth about wired-headsets and how to reduce RF exposure from cell phones.
This misinformation being reported by mainstream media is putting cell phone users at much greater risk of cell phone radiation emissions.
Believing wired-headsets are a safe alternative to placing a phone against their head, many people use hands-free headsets and attach the phone to their belt or purse.
Studies, SAR testing and research conducted by RF Safe has confirmed:
- Phones operate at higher power levels and emit more microwave radiation when they are held lower than the head.
- Radiation travels through the wire connecting the phone and earpiece and penetrates the head directly through the ear canal. This has been proven to increase radiation exposure to the brain by 300%.
- With phones attached to a belt, microwave radiation penetrates the area by the phone and is absorbed faster than the head because tissues and organs such as the liver, kidneys and reproductive organs provide better conductivity than the skull and have no bone protection
Simply put, wired hands-free kits for cell phones do not protect your brain from radiation - on the contrary, they channel three times the dose into the skull that you receive by holding the phone next to your ear, according to the UK Consumers' Association.
The researchers found the wires leading from the phone into the ear acted like an aerial antenna, conveying a more concentrated dose of radio waves than usual. The Consumers' Association says the findings on the hands-free kits were a surprise. “If you're worried about levels of radiation from your mobile phone, you shouldn't rely on a wired hands-free set,” said Graeme Jacobs, editor of Which?
