Lowest radiation cell phones sold in USA

Cell phone safety starts with the lowest radiation cell phones.

SAR (specific absorption rate) is an indication of the amount of radiation that is absorbed into a head whilst using a cellular phone, the higher the SAR rating the more radiation that is absorbed into the head.

UPDATE: Wireless radiation safety innovator, RF Safe Cooperation has completed a brand new project to provide consumers with an SAR research tool to easily discover the microwave radiation level of nearly any Smartphone device.    RF Safe has made it very easy for consumers to check the radiation levels of most Smartphones with comparison features to compare SAR levels of different Smartphones side by side.

Specific Absorption Rate (SAR)

A SAR value is a measure of the maximum energy absorbed by a unit of mass of exposed tissue of a person using a mobile phone, over a given time or more simply the power absorbed per unit mass. SAR values are usually expressed in units of watts per kilogram (W/kg) in either 1g or 10g of tissue.

Exposure Limits

In Europe, the European Council Recommendation 519/1999/EC for exposure guidelines has adopted the recommendations made by the International Commission on Non-Ionising Radiation Protection (ICNIRP Guidelines 1998). In the US, the FCC, Federal Communications Commission, sets the radio frequency safety guidelines that all phones must meet before being sold in the US. Current reference standards and limits.
