Cell Phone Radiation
MEMPHIS, Tenn. - A new report details exactly how much radiation your cell
phone is emitting, and you might be surprised which phones made the top of the
Cell phones are a life necessity for many. Everywhere you look texts are being
sent and calls are being made.
Eddie Jacobs says, "I'm not giving up my iPhone."
But a new report issued by the Environmental Working Group details cell phones
sold in America with the highest levels of radiation being emitted.
Professor Eddie Jacobs says like many products we use on a daily basis cell
phones emit radiation and the concern for some, how much of that radiation is
entering our bodies.
Jacobs says, "The fact that its right up next to your head is of some concern
because there may be biological effects from non-ionizing radiation."
But Dr. Allen Sills says right now there's no proof.
Dr. Sills says, "We don't know of anything in the environment that causes brain
Dr. Sills adds while the concern is valid there might not be anything to worry
Dr. Sills says, "Radiation is a daily part of our lives and the question always
is how dangerous are those types of radiation."
With two BlackBerry's attached to his own belt, Dr. Sills says the research
linking cell phone use to cancer to date is still inconclusive.
Dr. Sills says, "At this point there's been no study that shows that the
radiation produced by cell phones is dangerous to humans."
The report looked specifically at the phone's model, if it's on the market, the
phones carrier and its radiation output.
According to the report the top 5 cell phones with the highest levels of
Blackberry Curve 8330
The final 3 with the highest rate of are radiation tied at 1.55 watts per
kilogram of radiation output:
Motorola MOTO VU204
Kyocera Jax S1300
T-Mobile MyTouch 3G
Jacobs says, "It's well within the federal standards for the amount of radiation
that a device like this can emit."
On the top end of the list cell phones range from only 0.15 to 0.47 watts per
kilogram of radiation produced.
In the end Dr. Sills says a few preventive measures will save you the headache
of even thinking about your phone's radiation output.
Dr. Sills says, "Personally I do use a hands free head piece again primarily for
safety reasons but I think also there's less radiation emissions so it's a
reasonable step to take for safety."
