Consumer Alert: Important Information on Cell Phone Radiation Safety

Recent findings from the Environmental Health Trust (EHT) have revealed undisclosed Federal Communications Commission (FCC) tests showing that certain smartphones exceeded the federal limits for radiation when tested at 2 mm from the body—a common distance when phones are carried in pockets. These findings raise concerns about the safety of everyday phone use.

Key Points:

  1. Test Results Revealed: Tests performed on popular models from Apple, Samsung, Motorola, and Blu showed that the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) exceeded safe limits at just 2 mm away from the body.
  2. Implications for Users: If radiation levels are high at 2 mm, they could be even higher when the phone is pressed directly against the body, such as during calls or when carried in a pocket without a case.
  3. Lack of Disclosure: These critical test results were not made public during related FCC rule-making processes, nor were they disclosed in court cases regarding safety standards.

Recommendations for Consumers:

  • Increase Distance: Always try to keep your phone at least a few millimeters away from your body. Use speakerphone or a wired headset to make calls.
  • Use Protective Cases: Consider using a phone RF Safe case designed to reduce radiation exposure.
  • Carry Smartly: Do not carry your phone directly against your body, such as in a pocket or bra. Use a bag or phone holder instead.
  • Stay Informed: Regularly check for updates on phone radiation safety standards and testing results.
  • Educate Others: Share this information with family and friends, especially children and teenagers who frequently use mobile phones.

General Advice:

Even if your phone model was not tested or mentioned, these findings suggest a precautionary approach to how we use mobile devices. Err on the side of caution and adopt habits that minimize direct exposure to cell phone radiation.

Stay Safe:

Remember, the closer your phone is to your body, the greater the risk. By adjusting how you carry and use your phone, you can help reduce your exposure to potentially harmful radiation.
