In view of the WHO's claim that cell phone radiation is potentially carcinogenic I would like to open up a thread to have an honest and informed discussion on this topic. I would discourage either apologist or alarmist thinking. My rudimentary research on the web has sadly led me nowhere as there are so many conflicting sources and vested interests. There's an indicator of the radiation absorbed by the body known as S.A.R. which I am sure many are aware of iand the iphone complies of course with current upper limits for it. It is however among the higher smartphones on S.A.R. Some sources on the web, with questionable reliability imho, claim that S.A.R. is not a valid indicator of potential dangers as the placement of the antenna within the phone and the strength of the signal (due to the quality of the antenna) also play a part in cell phone radiation. I am not convinced with this view and I find it dubious, or a way to justify higher SAR in some manufacturers, including apple. Also if SAR is not a good indicator then why is it the only approved one by authorities worldwide? There's also the issue of bluetooth headsets and cabled headphones. Is having a lower power signal such as bluetooth better, but then again by virtue of the proximity of bluetooth in the ear and the constant wearing of it from some users, doesn't that negate the positives of using one? And a cabled headphone is also said to be a better, safer option, but then again some claim since the cable itself becomes an antenna it isn't, and might even potentially be a worse choice. We all need to form an opinion here especially so when many of us have children who are even more vulnerable to radiation dangers. So please let's not derail the discussion with comments such as "oh well the sun and rocks radiate too" or "go hide in a faraday cage to avoid radiation." One last thing, I believe in view of Steve's battle with cancer that apple should be on the forefront of safer technology, cell phone radiation included. Yet for some reason they aren't themselves apparently researching this issue. And it's no small deal when an esteemed and responsible body such as the World Health Organization claims a potentially carcinogenic effect. At the end of the day we need to know which cell phones are safer, what makes a cell phone safer and what ways of usage and accessories also make it safer. And we can only do that via an informed discussion. peace. blow.
