As parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends and guardians, we are responsible for ensuring that our children are healthy and thriving. With wireless technologies and devices all around us, we need to be well informed about safety and possible risks to protect those who are the most vulnerable: our children.
Both you and I are only two of the five billion mobile phone users out there. Our phones have become a daily necessity for us. Have you ever wondered how much radiation you absorb when making a phone call, downloading a file or simply when keeping a phone in your pocket? How safe is it? And how did SAR come about?
In his scientific report from early 2019, Prof. Om. P. Gandhi shows that mobile phones fail the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) safety limits both in Europe and the USA. He recommends that the regulators change current compliance testing methods.
As consumers, we generally think that all electronic products we use, including mobile phones, are safe to use. When it comes to mobile phones and other wireless technology, one of the safety tests that a product needs to pass before it’s released to the market is a Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) test. The results of such test reveal whether the product is above or below a set safety limit.
Prof Gandhi reveals that the current safety standards and the way these tests are carried out are not providing us, the consumers, with true results. And because of that, we can’t rely on them. We’ll explain why.
