How to Avoid Smartphone Threatening Radiation

A Chicago Tribune study released investigative findings on radio frequency radiation emitted by popular smartphones, including several variations of the iPhone, Samsung, Motorola, and BLU. It was said that the radiation was twice as large as the radiation level permitted by The Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

Ellie Marks, executive director of the California Brain Tumors Association said that she had testified when her husband had a brain tumor caused by long-term cellular use.

"I am not at all surprised by the Tribune's findings and am pleased to see a class action lawsuit filed after publication," Ellie said, as reported by Healthline, Monday (2/9).

Ellie argued, the FCC and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) needed to reassess their guidelines regarding cell phone radiation restrictions.

The FCC Chair, Ajit Pai previously also announced that they would adhere to the current guidelines. However, some countries are currently working to expand 5G coverage throughout the world, which will definitely require higher levels of radiation.

"This cannot be submitted to the FCC or the FDA for investigation. Collusion and corruption between the FDA, FCC and telecommunications are currently out of control," Ellie explained.

November last year, Dr. Jeffrey Shuren, director of the FDA's Center for Devices and Health Radiology, released a statement to SourceTrusted which said that current safety for cell phone radio frequency energy exposure remains acceptable to protect public health.

Santosh Kesari, a neuro-oncologist and chair of the department of translational neuro oncology and neurotherapeutics at the John Wayne Cancer Institute at Providence Saint John Health Center in Santa Monica, California, said the statement was based on tests on mice, which are difficult to interpret to humans.

"There have been many studies over decades in animal models that show some effects on the incidence of cancer, but all studies are slightly different, and once again, dose exposure to animals and humans is different, so the relevance to the human situation is still unclear," Kesari said.

However, there are several things you can do to reduce radiation exposure. Experts suggest the following:

1. Don't keep your cellphone next to your body, like in a pocket.

2. Use the speakerphone or headset when making a call.

3. Don't sleep next to your cellphone or other device.

4. Store the phone in airplane mode when you are not using it.

There are several products that aim to reduce radiation, such as the cover of the SafeSleeve device which is claimed to be able to block more than 99 percent of Radiofrequency (RF) and 92 percent of very low frequency radiation.
