Modern society has imposed technology as a necessity, and mobile phones are apparently an inevitable part of our daily lives.
Mobile phones make our communication extremely easy, but have you ever thought about the possible risks of use for our health?
The Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel conducted a study that was published in the journal Biochemistry, who found that certain cell phones or mobile devices exposes us to harmful levels of electromagnetic radiation.
This study showed that a single use of certain cell phones for only 15 minutes can stimulate changes in brain cells trigger linked to the division of cancer cells.
Therefore, CNET exposed five phones with the highest radiation.
The FCC gives instructions that all mobile phones must be tested for their specific absorption rate (SAR) – the percentage of the body absorbs phone radiation. Higher levels allowed by the FCC is 1.6 watts / kg of meat.
The following tables provide additional information from mobile phones and harmful radiation levels:
