How safe is your cell phone?

How safe is your cell phone?
When you buy a new mobile or super-duper Smartphone, is the first thing you look at what the specific absorption rate (SAR) is of the device you’re interesting in spending cash on? Me neither, but according to some health organizations, we should be paying attention to mobile phone radiation. Rather than try and convince people to stop using their Smartphone for phone calls (ain’t gonna happen), hands-free or earphone with microphone applications let people minimize exposure to cellular radiation while they
continue using their mobile phones. I’ve never seen people in Sweden or Norway talking on mobile phone without hands-free set.
Essentially, you should monitor and analyze your mobile phone’s radiation using proprietary technology, enabling you to “talk on” as usual and receive prompts to avoid radiation when you really need to. According to the recent research, radiation levels emitted from mobile phones can fluctuate significantly during a call, due to a variety of dynamic factors. Despite scientific studies showing no link between tumors and mobile phone radiation, San Francisco back in 2010, have decided that it is in the consumer’s best interest to clearly display the specific absorption rates (SAR) emitted by every phone sold.
The Law requires phone retailers to display this information next to each phone in their store in at least 11 point type.
The FCC (Federal Commission for Communications in USA) currently requires all phones sold in the US to have a SAR of less than 1.6 W/kg, but every phone has a different SAR, and the concern is that some people will think that some phones are safer than others, meaning poor little Johnny or Givi may miss out on an iPhone because of an over-protective and ill-informed parent. The golden rule is: never buy uncertified mobile phones, no-name or Chinese made replica phones imitating Iphone or Nokia and other famous brands.
