Radiation in iPhones: how harmful is it and how to protect yourself?

In 2015, the efforts of the Internet media launched another “hype” associated with the negative impact of smartphones on human health. Say, a modern user who is constantly in contact with a dangerous gadget is almost doomed to cancer, impotence and infertility. How dangerous is your iPhone – we’ll figure it out in the material below.

So, modern man, like the Neanderthal who lived tens of thousands of years ago, is from birth in the sphere of action of electromagnetic fields, the main of which is the electromagnetic field of the earth. However, unlike the Neanderthal, today’s tech-savvy citizen exposes himself to additional radiation, the source of which, in particular, is a smartphone.

Radiation in iPhones: how harmful is it and how to protect yourself?

How harmful is radio frequency radiation to humans?

It is rather difficult to assess the negative impact of such radiation on the body, which provides a wide field for the activities of various lovers of sensations, conspiracy theories and admirers of alternative medicine. With the help of simple manipulations with statistical data, they write off on mobile phones all the negative trends inherent in the current generation – from a decrease in the birth rate to an increase in the number of cancer diagnoses in certain regions.

Naturally, official science also deals with this issue, measuring SAR (specific absorption rate of electromagnetic energy) and obliging smartphone manufacturers to control its level. So, for most countries of the world, SAR should not exceed 2 W / kg for 10 grams of human tissue, in the USA – 1.6 W / kg per 1 gram of tissue. Naturally, all Apple smartphones meet these requirements, as you can see by looking at the table below (data taken from the company’s official website).

How to protect yourself from smartphone radiation?

It is impossible to completely protect yourself from the harmful effects of the electromagnetic field, however, you can minimize its influence by taking into account the following recommendations:

  • do not talk on the phone for more than 5 minutes – studies conducted with the help of an encephalograph show that after this particular time, noticeable negative processes begin to occur in the brain;
  • use a headset – the further the device is from the head, the better;
  • do not talk on the phone in transport – the metal “box” serves as an antenna that amplifies the signal;
  • try to use your smartphone in places with a good signal level – the better the coverage, the less the gadget’s radiation.

Which iPhone is the most harmful in terms of SAR?

So, the specific absorption rate (Specific Absorption Rate) is used to designate the amount of energy absorbed by the tissues of the human body of the electromagnetic field, the tested device. The calculation takes into account the time interval of one second, during which the SAR should not exceed 2 W / kg for 10 grams of tissue (Europe) and 1.6 W / kg for 1 gram (North America). In this case, we are talking about the maximum possible signal transmission power of the device, which can be 100 or more times higher than the minimum.

When looking at the data provided by Apple, you will notice that the SAR does not decrease with the release of new models – the most harmful in terms of radio frequency radiation are the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8. However, it should be noted that the maximum SAR is taken into account, while in normal mode, the smartphone emits tens of times less energy.
