The iPhone 7 And Cancer Risks
One of the recent changes to the new iPhone 7 is that Apple has stopped using a conventional headphone jack for Airpods, a type of wireless headphone designed by Apple. Airpods are planned to be the first in what Apple is anticipating to be a wireless future. Apple has released warnings within the directions for the new iPhone 7 stating that these radio frequency exposure caused by the phones can injure a user if a user does not hold the phone a sufficient distance from the user’s ear. Individuals should be aware of the potential health risks presented by Airpods and the iPhone 7 prior to purchasing one of these devices.
The Dangers Posed By iPhone 7
There is a significant possibility that Airpods can have a devastating impact on the health of the listener. Airpods connect to the iPhone 7 through Bluetooth technology. Apple has stated that all of their Bluetooth devices emit radio-frequency radiations that are within the guidelines compiled by the Federal Communications Commission, however the exact frequency of the Bluetooth emission for Airpods has not been released by Apple.
When Airpods communicate with the iPhone 7, which is only a short distance away, the phone transmits a low power level. Because an iPhone 7 communicates with the right Airpod through Bluetooth, this signal is then sent to the left Airpod, which means that radiation must pass through a user’s brain. Doctor Leif Salford, one of the top researchers on cell phone radiation, recently claimed that even individuals who hold wireless phones a significant distance from their head experience damaging effects.
The Failure of Previous Bluetooth Tests
Individuals who support Airpods reference a 2012 study that appeared in the Journal of Laryngology and Otology. Some individuals claim that this experiment revealed that Bluetooth is not a carcinogen, but this test failed to expose individuals for a sufficient amount of time to dangerous bluetooth signals. In reality, many scientists believe that electromagnetic radiation is a carcinogen. Research further shows that these emissions wear down the blood-brain barrier, which is significant for keeping chemical toxins out of the body.
