Cell Phone Radiation Levels

By CNET staff (updated July 31, 2009)
What it all means:

According to the Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association (CTIA), specific absorption rate, or SAR, is "a way of measuring the quantity of radio frequency (RF) energy that is absorbed by the body." For a phone to pass FCC certification, that phone's maximum SAR level must be less than 1.6 watts per kilogram. In Europe, the level is capped at 2W/kg while Canada allows a maximum of 1.6W/kg. The SAR level listed in our charts represents the highest SAR level with the phone next to the ear as tested by the FCC. Keep in mind that it is possible for the SAR level to vary between different transmission bands and that different testing bodies can obtain different results. Also, it's possible for results to vary between different editions of the same phone (such as a handset that's offered by multiple carriers).

It's important to note that in publishing this list are we in no way implying that cell phone use is or isn't harmful to your health. While research abounds and some tests have shown that cell phone radiofrequency (RF) could accelerate cancer in laboratory animals, the studies have not been replicated. Cell phones can affect internal pacemakers, but there is not conclusive or demonstrated evidence that they cause adverse health affects in humans. Conversely, there is not conclusive or demonstrated evidence that they don't cause adverse health affects in humans. So, in short, the jury is still out, research is ongoing, and we will continue to monitor its results.

If your phone isn't listed here (U.S. customers) and you've purchased it within the last few years (the FCC Web site currently does not provide information on models certified before 1998), you can request the SAR information from the manufacturer or your carrier. You'll need the model number and FCC ID number, which is usually but not always listed in your owner's manual or under your phone's battery (you must pop the battery out). For links to the FCC's Web site, please see the More Resources section below. We'll continue to update the list as new phones are announced.

20/20 Interview: Wireless Worries

Cell Phone Usage and EMF Waves

Q: I have been a heavy user of mobile phones for years and I feel fine, why should I feel concerned? How do I know if there is a problem?

A: Some people feel a specific or an unspecific symptom when they use a mobile phone, others don’t. It is highly individual. It has been reported in scientific papers that EMFs such as those emitted from mobile phones may significantly increase the risk of conditions such as cancer. Individuals developing such conditions rarely feel anything before it’s too late. Therefore, even if you "feel nothing", it is no guarantee that you are safe.

Q: Does using an ear piece help? (How far away should I keep my handset from the head?)
A: Nobody knows for certain, since scientific studies have reported biological effects induced by radiation intensities thousands of times below the level emitted from mobile phones. This means that even the reduction in head exposure intensity obtained by using an ear piece may not bring the level of radiation below the threshold where biological effects occur. In general, any reduction in the intensity of radiation emitted into the head of the user is of course desirable; however, if the user is carrying the handset in his belt, s/he will be exposing important blood cell producing tissues in the pelvic bones, as well as his/her reproductive organs to radiation.

Q: Is there any risk from keeping my phone on standby in my pocket?
A: Your cell phone, even when not it use (but turned on), does still emit harmful waves that can potentially effect the body.

Q: Why haven’t more human laboratory studies been made?
A: Laboratory studies on humans are difficult and costly to conduct. Therefore, the research has been focused on cell and humane animal laboratory studies and epidemiological studies on humans. However, some studies have been made on humans showing an increased blood pressure, changed EEG readings (brain waves) and changed EKG readings (heart beats) as a result of mobile phone radiation.
