Certain mobile devices may be exposing us to harmful levels of electromagnetic radiation.
Our world has evolved to a time where we can’t ever leave the house without our cell or mobile phones. Although they are one of the most brilliant inventions — helping us communicate through text and phone calls, taking and posting photos and videos, using GPS to find our way to any location and even taking on the role of a book reader and flashlight, our phones could also be harming us.
According to research from the Weizmann Institute of Science, certain cell phones or mobile devices may be exposing us to harmful levels of electromagnetic radiation.
Published in the Biochemical Journal, the study found that a single use of certain cellphones for just 15 minutes can trigger brain cell changes associated with cancerous cell division.
The FCC mandates that all cell phones must be tested for their specific absorption rate (SAR) — the rate of which radiation from the phone is absorbed into your body. The maximum level that the FCC allows is 1.6 watts/kg of flesh.
