The exposure standard for mobile phones utilizes a unit of measurement called the SAR (standard absorption rate). The industry standard, set by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is currently 1.6 W/Kg. averaged over 1 gram of body tissue. Each mobile phone user guide should have the applicable SAR published in the section on Radio Waves. Some scientists believe, however, that the SAR standard is too high and should be set at about 1.04 W/Kg.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has expressed concerns about low frequency magnetic fields. Examples are:
Concerns have been expressed that exposure to extremely low frequency (ELF) magnetic fields at power frequencies (50/60 Hz) could lead to an increased incidence of cancer in children and other adverse health effects. The evidence comes primarily from residential epidemiological studies. These studies suggest that children exposed to ELF magnetic fields have an associated increased risk of leukaemia.
WHO has commissioned a long-term study called the International EMF Project. The purpose of the project is to provide a coordinated international response to concerns about possible health effects of exposure to EMF. Ultimately, WHO seeks to provide information on the management of EMF protection programmes for member states including reports on EMF risk detection and hazards resulting from EMF exposure and mitigation.
Dr. George Carlo, an expert in the field of Cell Phone EMF Research, was hired by the cell phone Industry to prove that cell phones were safe. After years of research, Dr. Carlo could find no evidence that cell phones were safe.
Dr. Carlo’s research showed that people who use cell phones have three times the risk of developing brain and eye cancers. Dr. Carlo also found that cell phone radiation from repeated use disrupted the blood/brain barrier and damaged the DNA.
Pong Research has produced a cell phone case that provides EMF protection. The iPhone case is designed to protect users while optimizing the phone’s signal. FCC laboratories have shown this case to reduce cell phone radiation up to 91 percent below the international safety limits.
The Pong case is embedded with a specially manufactured antenna, which reroutes the potentially damaging electromagnetic radiation away from the head while simultaneously reducing the radiation exposure. Before the Pong case, users were limited to fewer remedies like keeping mobile phones away from the body or using a headphone.
Research on electromagnetic radiation is continuing. The end result is to articulate the dangers and educate the public while formulating new products and processes to deal with electromagnetic radiation both cheaply and effectively.
