Experts Warn That Apple AirPods May Be Health Hazardous

A World Health Origination and United Nations petition is warning against the use of AirPods, over fears concerning potentially hazardous radiation.

As many as 250 scientists from over 40 countries have conveyed ‘serious concern’ over the radiation generated by wireless devices, defined as the non-ionizing electromagnetic field (EMF). The petition states: “Based upon peer-reviewed, published research, we have serious concerns regarding the ubiquitous and increasing exposure to EMF generated by electric and wireless devices.

“Numerous recent scientific publications have shown that EMF affects living organisms at levels well below most international and national guidelines.” The petition too said The International Agency for Research on Cancer determined recently that EMF to humans is ‘possibly carcinogenic.’

Jerry Phillips, a biochemistry professor at the University of Colorado, explained to lifestyle journalist writing for Medium: “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.”

Contrariwise, Kenneth Foster, a bioengineering professor at the University of Pennsylvania, asserts that the evidence, when observed in the whole, actually indicates there is no harm in utilizing EMF-emitting devices. He spoke: “There are many thousands of papers of varying quality and relevance to health that point in all sorts of directions.”

Leeka I. Kheifets an epidemiologist at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) has too previously noted wireless headphones are a ‘a positive development’, as they pull people away from placing a potent phone to their ears.

“We haven’t done all we need to do in terms of looking at this technology’s health effects and we need to do more,” said Kheifets. “It’s worth it to be cautious, and part of being cautious is to use some kind of earpiece. And exposure from the Bluetooth device would be very, very low.”
