Is Cell Phone Radiation A Red Herring

Editor’s Note: Mobile Phone Radiation and Health

The concept of measuring safe levels of cell phone radiation exposure using a specific absorption rate (SAR) has been around for many years. However, recent developments have raised concerns about the validity of these test methods, with the FCC questioning their adequacy in ensuring public safety.

The current thermal and non-thermal dividing line used as the basis for safety standards of radio frequency radiation exposures (SAR levels) was seen as a “red herring.” This distinction distracts from the public’s understanding of the actual health effects of low-level microwave radio frequency radiation (cell phone radiation) and hampers our ability to protect the public effectively. It appears increasingly invalid to differentiate ionizing from non-ionizing radiation when it comes to their health effects.

The bottom line? Cell phone radiation is not safe for everyone. We honestly don’t know who will be affected by cell phone radiation exposure because everyone’s DNA is different. Yet, we do know people who have suffered serious health consequences, including death, due to cell phone radiation exposure. Just as some people can die from bee stings while others do not, we simply don’t know if you’ll be safe using a cell phone – and neither does anyone else, including the FCC, FDA, cell phone manufacturers, and all the “so-called experts.”

Think about it: how many other products have we been told were “safe” by industries and government alike, only to later find out they were toxic, dangerous, or even fatal?

Will cell phone radiation from cell phones join these killers on the “Gee, we thought it was safe” list? We believe so. Furthermore, no one can prove to RF Safe that cell phone radiation exposure is not one of the largest and newly growing health risks we face today. It may take years, even decades, before all the research is accumulated and the truth becomes widely known.

In the meantime, it is crucial to stay informed and take proactive measures to protect yourself and your loved ones from potential harm. Education and precautionary practices are our best defense against the uncertainties of cell phone radiation exposure.
