Cell phones first came about in the USA in the 1900s and were a favourite. Since then, their use and functionality have increased; eventually blossoming into the smartphones that we have today. In recent time, more attention has been given to the subject area in cell phone use which revolves around the emission of electromagnetic radiation from cellphones. In light of which many studies have been carried out, and solid facts have been drawn.
Cell phones emit radiofrequency energy (radio waves), a form of non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation from their antennas. This is actually part of how they work to send and receive signals through their antennas. Electromagnetic radiations generally are of two types; ionizing and non-ionizing radiations. Wherein, radiofrequency waves happen to fall under the non-ionizing category. It means that the emission of these types of waves are characterized by low-frequency, low-energy, and low power.
Cell phone technology has rapidly grown to become a major part of human life and culture. Today, it has come to the point where humans need it to perform many basic, day-to-day tasks because of its ease of use. This entails communication, business transactions, entertainment, dissemination of information. Literally, the functions of a cell phone are endless. And it is very clear that they are a part of technology that humans can’t do without and probably don’t even want to. Hence, therein lies a conundrum, since non-ionizing radiation is the norm with cell phones.
What Do You Do
Now you have probably come to the point of deliberation: “I know about the electromagnetic fields and radiofrequency emissions of cell phones but I am not ready to embrace a life without it. What can I actively do in regards to it?”. The important thing to know is that you have to find ways to actively reduce your radiation exposure. Now you’re contemplating, as to the ways you can pull of the prevention of mobile phone emf radiations.
“If radiofrequency emissions are part of how cell phones work, how can I reduce exposure without giving up my cell phone?”
Firstly, be advised to take note of the SAR (Specific Absorption Rate) levels of the cell phone you plan to use or are currently using, as this differs from cell phone to cell phone. The SAR level of a mobile phone is very important because it determines the amount of radiofrequency energy produced by it, which has a direct effect on the amount of radiofrequency energy absorbed by the body. This piece of information is mandated by law to be made public so it can usually be found in the user manual or on the manufacturer’s website. It is also important to note that newer models of cell phones such as the smart phones tend to emit a relatively higher amount of radiation than the older models of mobile phones. Additionally, people are encouraged to limit the amount of time and frequency of the use of their cell phones, as well as proximity to the cellphone whether it is in use or not.
But sometimes it can be hard to follow these suggestions especially for people who tend to do a lot of work via their mobile phones. And to be honest, that's literally everyone, since when not in use, your cell phone is a feet away from you. In regards to that, scientists and innovators have been able to come up with the idea of cell phone EMF-blocking products. Simply put this refers to any device that protects cell phone users by blocking electromagnetic radiation from the cellphone. These products come in many varieties but the most popular are phone cases due to their seamless usefulness.
Cell-Phone Radiation Protective Cases: What Are They?
Basically, these come in the form of regular phone cases with the added perk of being able to protect the user from electromagnetic radiations from the cellphones they encase. It goes like this; the cases protect the cellphone from damage whilst also protecting the user from the cell phone. However, not all cell phone cases have the capacity to do this—only those made specifically for this purpose can. So you have to make sure to check that when getting one.
How the Radiation Cases Work
The cell phone cases are made up of radiation shields that are composed of ceramic or any conductive material to prevent radiation from penetrating into the ear or head. In other words, they work to minimize the amount of the radiation from the cell phone that gets to you by detecting radio waves and deflecting or scattering these radiations away from your head. Moreover, the cell phone cases do not stop you from using any of the normal or complex functions of the phone. This includes making and receiving calls or text messages, connecting to the internet, or running games.
The cases are designed to contain a directional antennae embedded into a special material such as silicon. It is the antennae which is in charge of deflecting the radiofrequency energy emitted—away from the front of the phone and the screen especially. The screen is where most people actively interact with their cell phones; so, overall, it reduces the SAR level of the cellphone. It is important to know that the cases help to reduce how much radiation gets to the users but they do not block 100% of the radiofrequency signals. This is as opposed to various claims by different manufacturers out there.
Points made, just as every cell phone has a design specific to it, the cases have to be designed to fit the particular cell phones. So when out looking for one, note you have to get the right one for the model of your phone. And what’s more, these cases come in different trendy designs so they are just as fashionable as they are protective against radio-frequency radiation. Essentially, you get the best of both worlds.
Where Can I Get One?
With all this information, the next question naturally is “Where can I get one?” Though Orgone Energy does not carry such cases at this time, we have created a product that can turn any phone case into a radiation protection device. You can find these at https://www.orgoneenergy.org/products/phone-computer-wifi-shield. This mobile phone product acts as an anti-radiation shield. Orgone Energy also offers other EMF blocking merchandise such as the Quantum Orgone pendants and Aircraft Travel EMF Protectors. This protects you from not just electromagnetic radiations from your own cell phones and devices but also from devices of others around you.
