Cell phone technology is advancing at a dizzying pace, and what seem like scientifically-sound solutions may actually be compounding the problem. By understanding the principles of cell phone radiation claims, consumers can evaluate the best protective products on the market.
Cell phone radiation protection
- Common Sense
The FCC and Federal Trade Commission recommend using a few common-sense approaches to reducing exposure to cell phone SAR. These include using a headset to keep your phone away from your body, texting more often than speaking, and waiting for a good signal, thus reducing “heavy” exposure to cell phone radiation.
- Cell phone radiation “shield”
Some products claim to shield users from cell phone radiation. According to the FTC, this claim is not scientifically proven to be true of the majority of products. Additionally, the FTC notes that covering a phone’s earpiece is insufficient as radiation emits from the entire cell phone. The report also explains that a shield may interfere with a phone’s signal, causing it to draw more power, and possibly emit more radiation.
- The Bodywell Answer
Scientists consider the Bodywell Chip an entirely new approach to cell phone radiation reduction. The Bodywell Chip does not block or redirect radiation. Instead, it triggers a new set of fields that counter the radiation emitted by your cellphone. This approach does not interfere with your cellphone’s signal and does not rely on a specific spot on your phone to be effective.
