Cell Phone "Safe" SAR Rating Needs Review

If you own a cell phone, you may or may not have heard of SAR (Specific Absorption Rate). SAR is a measure of the amount of radio frequency energy absorbed by the body when using a mobile phone. In the US, cell phone manufacturers are required by the FCC to make sure their cell phones do not exceed the “safe” level of 1.6 watts per kilogram (1.6 W/kg).

But several studies are showing that low-intensity radiation up to 200,000 times BELOW the safety standard cause biological effects. These include: DNA damage, leakage in the blood-brain barrier, lowered immunity, formation of micronuclei (biological marker for cancer), and others. Some scientists are calling for a new standard as the SAR measure proves to be inadequate. Read the article, Cell Phone Safety Standards Not Good Enough
