Cell Phone Radiation Safety Tips With Dr Sanjay Gupta on Anderson Cooper 360

Everyone knows that operating a motor vehicle safely requires more than just fastening a seat belt; it entails many safety precautions. What is not commonly known is that safe cell phone usage is just as easy, but also requires a system of precautions. Each of the cellphone radiation safety accessories suggested in this video play a very important role in safe cell phone usage. Understanding when and how to use them all is very important.

In RF Safe’s SCP (Safe Cell Phone) Accessory Packages only scientifically proven ways to reduce radiation exposure are used to protect you and your love-ones from increased risk when using wireless products.  Please watch the video and learn about all the important phone safety accessories suggested below.   See RF Safe Cell Phone Packages

Back on the eve of the World Health Organization’s ruling on cell phone radiation safety, CNN chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta unveiled his own investigation into cell phone safety on Anderson Cooper 360°.

Dr. Gupta discusses safety recommendations from both manufacturers and the Federal Communications Commission for various devices, including Blackberry and iPhone.

Anderson Cooper and Dr. Gupta also discuss suggested safety precautions people can take, such as using a ferrite bead and Air tube headset.  Avoiding use when in low signal areas was also advised.   Bluetooth technology is  mentioned as a way to reduce exposure.   On this page you’ll learn how RF Safe made Bluetooth headsets even safer using patented air tube technology with a radiation shielded body clip.  Hottest product in demand for 2014!


The official findings, “radiation from cell phones can possibly cause cancer”, according to the World Health Organization. The agency now lists mobile phone use in the same “carcinogenic hazard” category as lead, engine exhaust and chloroform.

A team of 31 scientists from 14 countries, including the United States, made the decision after reviewing peer-reviewed studies on cell phone safety. The team found enough evidence to categorize personal exposure as “possibly carcinogenic to humans.”

What that means is they found some evidence of increase in glioma and acoustic neuroma brain cancer for mobile phone users, but have not been able to draw conclusions for other types of cancers


Cell phone radiation damages DNA, inflicts cellular damage and creates a broad spectrum of health problems and diseases, including DNA mutation and cancer in humans. A group of scientist published this in a scientific journal “Oxidants and Anti oxidants in Medical Science” in March 2014, in a study called “Low intensity radiofrequency radiation: a new oxidant for living cells”.

76 studies (or 92.5%) proved that cell phone radiation inflicts cellular damage. Cell phone radiation affects production of Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS); these are molecules that form in our bodies as byproduct during normal metabolism of oxygen.

A healthy human body has balanced, non health-threatening amounts of ROS. However, microwaves cause overproduction of ROS and dramatically increase oxidative stress – body’s inability to detoxify itself and repair the damage. Too much of ROS damages lipids, proteins and DNA in cells, and disrupts all kinds of natural cellular interacting signals, resulting in wide spectrum of diseases

These studies show that the debate about cell phone radiation being hazardous or not is over, and it is time to create a public policy that will address these issues as bio-effects have been observed at a rate of 92 percent in 80 peer-reviewed studies.

Therefore, it is important for governments of different countries to come together to create legislation that will limit cell phone radiation. There must be mandates for reduction in radiation levels by forcing cell phone manufactures and service providers to use different technologies than the existing ones which are available today (Vortis Technology as an example). Alongside, users should be made aware of the possible side-effects of cell phone use, so that they can make alternative choices such as using an RF Safe headset and RF Safe Flip Cover Case Shield.



rfsafe-acoustic-sound-tubeA hollow tube, similar to a doctors stethoscope allows air to transmit sound to your ears which keeps distance between your brain and any electronic components that can potentially radiate microwave radiation.  The acoustic technology uses a patented air tube and sound chamber design to deliver crystal clear sound without radiation or electronics in your ears.   RF Safe headsets are available in Mono ( single ear bud) and Stereo (two ear buds) versions.

By replacing the wire found on ordinary headsets with patented acoustic air tube technology, the RF Safe headset reduces RF exposure to the head and increases the pleasure of listening to one’s favorite music on their smartphone.

The latest innovations in RF Safe acoustic headset technology are now available for the newest smartphones on the market  RF Safe’s 5th generation air-tube headset technology is available in six different colors (White, Blue, Red, Black, Purple, Green) and come in both stereo earphone (dual ear buds) or mono earphone (single ear bud).

Headset RadiationConventional Headsets use wire to deliver sound to the earpiece and may also deliver electromagnetic radiation directly to your head into your ear.

Millions of people with cell phones depend on a headset for driving safety. While others are concerned about health effects from wireless radiation have opted for using a wired headset instead of wireless headset to avoid “bluetooth” headsets because Bluetooth technology still transmits microwave radiation and could still be a health hazard at low levels.

Unfortunately, it turns out that a headset’s wire can pick up microwave radiation that is transmitted from a cell phone and channels that radiation directly into a user’s head. Professor L Barclay, in 2005 found that microwave radiation from the cellphone travels along the wire from where it plugs into the phone to where it connects inside the ear bud to an electronic speaker inside a user’s ear. It’s important to note that an air-tube headset doesn’t have any electronics in your ears.

iphone-radiation-package-white-rfsafe-flip-case-white-air-tube-headset-ferriteRF Safe has a very simple and inexpensive way to reduce microwave radiation from traveling up a headset’s wire into the brain. It’s a special material composition, a ferrite bead. A ferrite bead is a small clip you put on the wire of a headset.

“Use of a ferrite bead placed around the hands free headset lead at a point beyond where the fields from the phone might induce strong currents in the headset wire significantly reduces the induced SAR when using a hands-free kit.” – Professor L Barclay 2005

The bead is designed to impede high frequency microwaves in the GHz range while allowing low frequency electromagnetic energy to pass through to operate the speaker to create sound in the Hz range.

Low frequency energy is passed to the speaker that creates the sound needed to reach a user’s ears, but potentially harmful high frequency microwave radiation from the cell phone is impeded. This makes the ferrite bead a very helpful accessory for cell phone radiation safety.

RF Safe suggest both of these products suggested by CNN in the video are used together for the most prudent avoidance of RF radiation.  When using an air-tube headset there are no wires reaching a user’s head, and the ferrite is added for wire protection where the wire comes in contact with a user’s torso.

When RF Safe Flip Case Radiation Shields were being designed, extensive research was conducted to determine the most effective method of deflecting phone radiation away from the head and body of the user without covering the antenna or increasing radiation emissions of the cell phone.

RF Safe methodologies for shielding radiation in a cell phone case  use technologies to deflect radiation which is directed towards the users body (ie radiation only the user would have absorbed) and will not cause the phone to increase out-put power.

RF Safe put over a decade of phone shielding experience to work when developing Peel-n-Shield™ as the ideal solution for shielding radiation by accommodating the latest smartphone flip cover designs.  Perfect protection when carried in a pocket, purse or even when used to the ear when an air tube headset isn’t an option.

The flip screen cover is lined with soft foam to protect the phone screen and deflects radiation as a shield between the user and wireless device.
