These Are The Top 5 Phones That Give Off The Highest Radiation. Is Yours On The List?

Just about everyone owns, or at least uses, a cell phone these days. Even some kids who can’t speak yet have access to the the devices, they are simply everywhere. In the span of a few short years they have become widely available and increasingly affordable. While they make life all the more convenient, there remains a lot of questions and concerns about whether or not they are completely safe to use.

On of the main issues surrounding cell phone safety is whether or not they increase the risk of developing cancer or tumors in the neck and head areas. This concern is borne out of the fact that cell phone antennas emit radiofrequency energy waves, which are a form of non-ionizing radiation that our bodies can absorb.

Experts have been divided for years, and remain split to this day, as to whether or not the radiofrequency energy given off by cell phones leads to a higher risk of developing cancer. In addition, many other factors come into play, such as how much time an individual spends on their phone, where they hold and store it, the type of cell phone used, and so forth.

Regardless of what the answer may turn out to be, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has been exercising oversight over the levels of radiation that cell phones are allowed to emit. In terms of health and safety standards, FCC regulations state that all cell phones sold in the US must be tested for their SAR, or Specific Absorption Rate.

That value is the rate at which radiation from a cell phone is being absorbed into the human body when the phone is held up next to the ear. The maximum rate allowed is 1.6 watts per kilogram of body weight. A device whose SAR exceeds this amount is deemed unfit for human use and thus banned from being sold.

CNET, the leading online tech review website, has been keeping track of the SAR for every cell phone that they have ever reviewed. In the clip below CNET senior editor Donald Bell lays out the top five cell phones with the highest levels of radiation, or SAR scores, which can also be found right here:

1) Motorola Droid Maxx, SAR 1.54. Sold by Verizon Wireless 2) Motorola Droid Ultra, SAR 1.54. Sold by Verizon Wireless 3) Motorola Moto E, SAR 1.5 4) Alcatel One Touch Evolve, SAR 1.49. Sold by T-Mobile 5) Huawei Vitria, SAR 1.49. Sold by metroPCS

The worst cell phone on the list, the Motorola Droid Max, is also one of the priciest and best rated ones. Mr. Bell notes that CNET reviewers gave it 4.5 stars and praised it as an “outstanding phone” thanks in part to its 15 hour battery life. Numbers one and two are the more expensive models on the list, while the remaining three are comparatively cheaper android phones.

The next time you go to pick out a new cell phone, be sure to look up what the SAR is for any that you like. It’s always better to err on the side of caution and to make informed choices that are best, and healthiest, for ourselves.

She Was Diagnosed With Breast Cancer But What Doctors Say Potentially Caused It Left Her Stunned!

Wendy Holt, a 51 year old woman from the UK was diagnosed with breast cancer.  Neither her age, ethnicity, family history nor lifestyle habits provided any pre-existing likelihood that she would develop this disease.

Further, diagnostic tests showed an unusual formation of small tumors, rarely seen.  When she was told that she had breast cancer and was informed of the strange pattern of the tumors, she instinctively knew what had caused this.  Wendy had stored her cellphone inside her bra, on the side where the tumors had developed, every day for years.  In fact, it had been a decade that she had done so, for convenience sake.

The breast where she had stored her cellphone was swollen, which led her to get medical attention.  What was found was a rare and inflammatory type of breast cancer.  According to the Daily Mail, Holt said, “I got my first phone  around 1999 and I was quite big-busted, so I would store it down there and nobody would be able to tell. It was pressed against my skin for probably 70 per cent of the day for about ten years — and I didn’t give it a thought.”

Holt survived the breast cancer, but unfortunately the disease had metastasized to her lungs and lymph nodes.  Her diagnosis is terminal and it will be unlikely that she will live to see her next birthday.  Generously, Holt has used this very sad and horrifying turn in her life, as a forum to forewarn others to never store a cellphone next to your skin on a regular basis.  She said, “People might disagree with my theory, but it’s my belief and I don’t want this to happen to anyone else.”

The doctors and others who were involved with her case, do concur with her theory, given the unusual array of the tumors, which matched the shape and position of how she stored her cellphone within her bra.

Watch the video below, to hear more details about this and other cases, which should be used as a cautionary tale of how to safely store your cellphone.  It should be kept in a pocket or purse, away from actual skin contact.  Sadly, Holt had to learn this through devastating consequences, but wants people to know what the possible consequences are, of phone to skin contact. She plans to take, what will likely be, her final family vacation to Malta.

NOTE: There have not been conclusive studies on this subject and as of today Doctors and Scientists need to collect more data to get definitive conclusive evidence. However, keeping your cell phone away from your skin is advised by cell phone companies and doctors alike.

She Takes A Cell Phone and Pushes It Into This Balloon. The Reason Will Save You Money.

No one can argue that the mobile phone is up there with the greatest inventions of all time.  They have made life so much easier in ways that were unimaginable.  The very fact that we can communicate instantly when we have left home is a phenomenon in and of itself.  We can get to where we are going without getting lost, get the same information we get from computers off the internet and even take excellent quality pictures and we go along our way.

This being said, a lot of the things that go along with a cell phone can become costly.  We all know that without a cell phone case the chances of damaging our treasured phones is inevitable.  Cell phone cases are an annoying expenditure.  Some very clever people have come up with a creative alternative.

Have fun watching this 30 second tutorial that uses an unlikely object to create a homemade cell phone case.  All you need is a balloon!  I never cease to be amazed at what creative people come up with!  If nothing else, this is really fun to watch.  Let us know if you would ever make this and use it as an alternative to buying a case for your cell phone.  I thought this was really cool!
