Hands-Free Mobile Phones "Emit More Radiation"
Yahoo.News (UK&Ireland), April,
hands-free kits for mobile phones can increase radiation exposure to
the brain, according to new research. Consumer watchdogs found that the
earpieces act like aerials, directing up to three times as much
microwave radiation into the brain as a phone held next to the head.
Some experts are now advising users to throw away the kits, millions of
which have been bought by people believing they reduce the risk of
cancerous brain tumours.
tests were ordered in the wake of medical studies in Britain and
overseas suggesting that mobile phone radiation is linked to brain
tumours, genetic damage and a range of illnesses, including
Alzheimer's. The industry has consistently denied that there is any
proof of danger, but many companies and individual users bought
hands-free kits to cut exposure to radiation.
tests for the CA's Which? magazine found that instead of
offering protection, the two devices tested actually acted as aerials,
and channelled three times as much radiation from the phones into the
users' heads. The resutls from Which? - the trading arm of the
CA - came from tests on hands-free kits for a Philips Savvy phone sold
by BT Cellnet and for an Ericsson A101-8S sold at Carphone Warehouse.
the watchdog did not have time to test other kits, it said it believed
the results would be similar. Graeme Jacobs, Editor of Which?
magazine said: "If you're worried about levels of radiation from your
mobile phone, you shouldn't rely on a hands-free set. The two models we
tested tripled the radiation to your brain..."
