Apple has announced that their iPhone 7 will include Dubbed AirPods, wireless earbuds which will end the use of ever-tangled cords of the conventional headphones.
The CEO of the company, Tim Cook, says that the water-resistant earbuds are a step towards the wireless future. The phone will communicate with the right earbud via Bluetooth, which will send another Bluetooth signal to the left one.
According to experts, these AirPods can be a threat because they emit radiation into the user`s brain. The whole transmission process of the signal, from one earbud to the other, will be through the brain.
As per the warnings, Apple explains that their Bluetooth devices are emitting radiofrequency radiation in the limits set by the Federal Communications Commission. But Joel Moskowitz from the UC Berkley School of Public Health says that more than 200 scientists have studied the effects of the electromagnetic fields on human body, and they all strongly opposite and criticize the FCC criteria and guidelines:
“This is playing fire, it`s like putting a device emitting microwaves right next to the brain. The effects have been observed and studied for a few decades and we keep rediscovering the harmful effects of Bluetooth. At the same time, we try to forget it because we don`t know how to handle the facts.”
It was believed that RFR does not carry enough radiation and electromagnetic energy to cause DNA or cellular damage. Still X-rays and other high-energy ionizing radiations have been proven to cause many types of cancer.
Many studies have come with evidence that RFR causes direct harm to our health. One of them has discovered that RFR can cause toxins to enter the brain by degrading the blood-brain barrier, and this is the biggest concern when it comes to using RFR transmitters right next to the brain.
As Moskowitz states:
“Bluetooth is a new technology so we still don`t know the long-term consequences, but think about this- why would anyone put a device emitting microwaves directly in the ears when we can use cell phone in much safer ways? Personally, I recommend using hands-free devices or corded headphones, definitely not wireless earbuds.”
Every single study has confirmed the health risks from Bluetooth radiation, and the same applies for Apple`s AirPods. People who are planning to purchase iPhone 7 should know about the findings from the Interphone study, funded by the company in 2010. According to the research, the risk of acoustic nerve damage, brain tumor and parotid gland tumor is increased in people who have been using cell phone for more than 10 years.
Earlier this years, at a Pediatric conference in Baltimore, dozens of American scientists confirmed that there is a strong link between use of cell phone and brain tumor. The president of the Environmental Health Trust, Dr. Devras Davis, stated that:
“The evidence is clear and there`s no room for a debate about it: cell phone do cause brain tumor.”
