The safety of Apple’s AirPods has been in the mainstream media this week
The articles highlight the potential health risks associated with using Bluetooth-enabled ear pieces which are not only available with Apple products but with Google and Samsung devices too.
Jerry Phillips, a professor of biochemistry at the University of Colorado Springs is quoted as saying “My concern for AirPods is that their placement in the ear canal exposes tissues in the head to relatively high levels of radio-frequency radiation.”
This view echoes the thoughts of about 250 EMF scientists from around the world who have signed a petition to the United Nations and the World Health Organization expressing concern about non-ionizing electromagnetic fields (EMF), which is the kind of radiation emitted by wireless devices, including Bluetooth-enabled technology. The petition calls for stricter guidelines to be imposed on this new technology following studies showing a link between EMF exposure and cancer and other serious health issues.
To reduce your exposure to radio frequency radiation, experts in the EMF health field, such as the Environmental Health Trust recommend using an AirTube headset instead of AirPods. AirTube headsets are a much safer way of talking and listening to music on your phone.
Air Tubes carry the sound from a small speaker to your ear via a hollow tube, giving you great sound quality while keeping radiation well away from your brain.
