According to a recent bombshell report by the Chicago Tribune, certain Apple and Samsung cell phones are emitting RF radiation at much higher levels than the FCC allows.

The report demonstrates that the world’s most popular smart phones, operating in the 3G and 4G bands, have the potential to exceed the FCC’s safe limits by up to five hundred percent! This five hundred percent increase occurred with a measurement only three millimeters closer than the FCC’s minimum separation distance of five millimeters.

 Smartphone manufacturers are required to abide by the FCC guidelines regarding radio frequency radiation absorption by the body. The current measurement used to determine the safety limit is known as the “specific absorption rate,” or SAR.

According to the Chicago Tribune report, the FCC has set the limit at 1.6 watts per kilogram (1.6W/kg), averaged over 1 gram of tissue. The FCC states that this limit is “well below that at which laboratory testing indicates … adverse health effects could occur.”

Now at this point, I need to take a moment to address this statement, because it is simply not true. In fact, it is an outright lie!

In what may be the most significantly underreported story in history, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration, in 1999, nominated a very important radio frequency radiation study to the National Toxicology Program. This study was one of the largest rodent studies ever done with a combined 16 years of planning and research.

This most recent National Toxicology Program study proves there is a definitive link between cell phone level radiation at non-thermal levels of exposure and cancer!

On Nov. 9, 2018, the National Institutes of Health/ National Toxicology Program website released final reports from their rat and mouse studies, as well as a newly updated fact sheet, citing “Clear Evidence” of cancer from exposure to cell phone level radiation.

The National Toxicology Program studies found that exposure to radio frequency radiation, similar to what is experienced by billions of consumers on their smartphones on GSM and CDMA networks worldwide, was associated with:

   1) Clear evidence of malignant schwannoma tumors in the hearts of male rats.

    2) Some evidence of malignant glioma tumors in the brains of male rats.

    3) Some evidence of pheochromocytoma tumors in the adrenal glands of male rats.

Ronald Melnick, PhD, who led the design of the National Toxicology Program study in his 28-year career as a scientist at the National Toxicology Program, said “An important lesson that should be learned from this is we can no longer assume any current or future wireless technology is safe.” He also stated “The NTP studies in experimental animals were designed to test the long-held assumption that radio frequency radiation at seemingly ‘low’ non-thermal exposure intensities could not cause harmful health effects. It failed the test. Cell phone radiation clearly caused cancer in these animals.”

Anthony Miller MD, University of Toronto Dalla Lana School of Public Health Professor Emeritus, said “This animal evidence, together with the extensive human evidence, coupled with the rising incidence of brain cancers in young people in the U.S., conclusively confirms that radio frequency radiation is a Category 1 human carcinogen.”

For a phone to receive approval from the FCC, it must never exceed the maximum SAR level, but the Tribune’s investigation showed that a handful of popular models do just that. The Tribune’s investigation tested 11 different models: Four iPhone models (the iPhone 7, 8, 8 Plus and 10), three Samsung Galaxy phones (the S8, S9 and J3), three Motorola phones (the e5, e5 Play and g6 Play) and a BLU Vivo 5 Mini. The phones were tested by RF Exposure Lab, an FCC accredited laboratory in San Marcos, California.

The investigators placed smartphones within 2, 5, 10 or 15 millimeters of a “simulated body” — which is a mix of sugar, water and salt and measured the levels of exposure with a series of probes. The 2-millimeter distance was chosen by the Tribune to simulate real world proximity to a cell phone. 2 millimeters accounted for undergarments and pocket material. The 5 through 15-millimeter tests were done to simulate the exact tests done by the manufacturers themselves. Making a special note, not all manufacturers test at the same distance. Apple tests at 5-millimeters and Samsung tests at 15-millimeters in many cases, thus accounting for Samsung’s lower radiation levels.

The results show that iPhone 7 radio frequency absorption levels were among the very worst offenders, with an SAR level of almost two to four times higher than the safety limit when tested 2 mm from the body. The three Samsung Galaxy models also showed higher absorption at the same distance, with the Galaxy S8 topping out with a reading of 8.22W/kg, five times higher than the current standard.

The report states that the FCC will now conduct its own tests over the coming months, but they told the Tribune that the testing was “not as comprehensive” as those usually filed for official compliance reports.

So, where does that leave us?

It should leave everyone very concerned. With clear evidence (strangely unreported in the mainstream media) that a link between cell phone radiation and cancer exists, cell phone manufacturers clearly have a lot to answer for. The time has come (and some would say the time has long since passed) for complete transparency regarding the clear and present danger that cell phone radiation presents to every human being who uses one. Children are especially vulnerable as their skulls and brains are not yet fully developed.

Can we afford to continue to pretend to find comfort in the propaganda the cell phone manufacturers are providing the media stating that cell phone radiation poses no human health risk? They know better than that. If you look in your phone’s instructions, you will find, usually buried deeply within, the warning that you should keep your cell phone a minimum of 5-15 millimeters away from your body, with the actual distance depending on the manufacturer? Isn’t this a tacit admission that they clearly understand that cell phone radiation is, in fact, dangerous?

Why do they still test their phones with the testing equipment placed at various distances from the phone in order to meet the FCC limits, instead of pressed right up against the phone to represent the way almost everyone holds their cell phone against their head? I understand that this limit was set at a time when cell phones were still a new, exciting technology, and people kept their phones in very large belt-worn holsters attached to their hips because they could not fit into their pockets at all (accounting for the unrealistic current testing distances.) By not changing these outdated limits and continuing to test these phones at what are now meaningless distances, both the FCC and the cell phone manufacturers are putting each and every one of us directly in harm’s way.

I urge you to make sure that you are protecting yourselves and your loved ones from the dangerous effects of cell phone radiation. Even though RF Safe makes the world’s best anti-radiation cases, it is no substitute for distance. RF Safe’s case is extremely important when the critical safety distance cannot be achieved. One of the most effective ways to stay safe is to use the speakerphone function whenever you can. If you must keep your call private, use an air-tube headset to keep the radiation from reaching your brain through your ear canal.
