Cell Phone Radiation: Top 10 Least Radiation-Emitting Cell Phones of 2009

  All cell phones, once powered on, emit certain amounts of electromagnetic radiation in the microwave radio frequency range. During the past 15 years or so, when mobile phone use has become phenomenally prevalent worldwide, the effects of this radiation on human health has come under intense study and has been the subject of numerous heated debates. These past years, we’ve seen report after report that associated prolonged mobile phone use and exposure to differing amounts of cellular phone radiation to brain tumors, cancer, stress, headaches, cognitive problems, and sleep disorders.

Most of these studies, however, have either been disputed by other scientists or deemed as biased by other groups who also produced evidence to the contrary. As such, there’s no definitive, undisputed conclusion, as of yet, about cell phone dangers. Scientists warn, correctly, that there’s so much that we don’t know about the effects of cellular phone radiation, and that the full impact may actually be known years from now when it is too late to reverse any damage.

The latency between exposure and brain cancer could be 20 or 30 years, observes Professor Devra Davis, at the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute. By using cellular devices without any clear understanding of the dangers, we are basically treating ourselves like lab rats in an experiment without any controls

To mitigate potential cell phone dangers, experts recommend certain safe practices in using wireless devices. Some of the most common recommendations are: Keep your mobile phone away from your body, text more and talk less, use headset or speakerphone function, use your land line, turn off your mobile phone while charging, keep cell phones away from children, and purchase or use phones that have been certified or tested to emit the least amount of radiation.

It is with the intention of educating the public about the dangers of mobile phone radiation that the Environmental Working Group (EWG) has conducted an exhaustive study, covering over a thousand cell phone models in the market, detailing the amount of radiation that each mobile phone emits. The EWG is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, founded in 1993 by Ken Cook and Richard Wiles, that aims to “use the power of public information to protect public health and the environment.”

Here are the 10 least radiation-emitting cell phones, according to the EWG report:

1. Samsung Impression (SGH-a877) AT&T

2. Motorola RAZR V8 CellularONE

3. Samsung SGH-t229 T-Mobile

4. Samsung Rugby (SGH-a837) AT&T

5. Samsung Propel Pro (SGH-i627) AT&T

6. Samsung Gravity (SGH-t459) CellularONE, T-Mobile

7. T-Mobile Sidekick T-Mobile

8. LG Xenon (GR500) AT&T

9. Motorola Karma QA1 AT&T

10.Sanyo Katana II Kajeet

As pointed out by the CTIA, the wireless industry’s lobbying group, there is yet no conclusive and fully substantiated study about cell phone dangers. However, it is no secret that government agencies in some countries have started to post warnings and direct cell phone manufacturers to clearly indicate the amount of radiation that each model they sell to the public actually emits.

Until we’re finally able to bridge that gap in our knowledge on the dangers of cell phone radiation, we can only take precautionary measures to protect ourselves. One important way to protect our health, is by buying or purchasing mobile phone models that have the least amount of radiation.

Pacebutler Corporation is the premier buyer of used cellular phones in the United States, today. You can sell or recycle phones through Pacebutler. Cell phone donations to your favorite charity or non-profit are also accepted.


Harmful Effects of Cell Phone Radiation

By Stephen Reed

  There is a rising apprehension about the amount of radiation being emitted by mobile phones and the nature of damage caused to those who are constantly using phones. Investigation on the adverse health effects of mobile phone radiation is on surge but fresh analyses have associated it with vertigo, salivary gland tumors, brain cancer, behavioral problems and migraines.

Most horrifying information is that many of the top mobile phones from popular manufacturing companies are considered to have maximum intensity of radiation emission, as per the Environmental Working Group. Blackberry Bold 9700, Motorola’s Droid, HTC Nexus One by Google and LG Chocolate Touch are some of the gaudy phones for you to avoid since all these four phones are actually approaching the sharp edge of ‘Radiofrequency radiation safety limits’ put forth by the ‘Federal Communications Commission’ as claimed by EWG. On the other hand, Blackberry Storm, Sanyo Katana II and Samsung Rugby have the lowest radiation discharge rates.

However every mobile phone discharges some amount of radiation which in the long run may cause serious health problems. Now-a-says life devoid of cell phones seems to be highly unfeasible. There are certain factors which are recommended by experts that can help to guard the radiation exposure to a greater level.

Make it a practice to use earphones all the time because earphones do not produce radiation as much as the mobile phones.

Try to talk less and listen more because according to experts while talking cell phones produce more radiation than at the time of listening.

Another important suggestion is to send text messages more often instead of talking because while creating text messages the phone utilizes less power as a result of which less radiation is produced.

Avoid talking when there is a weak signal because in order to catch hold of a stronger signal the phone releases considerable amount of radiation.

If you cannot live without a cell phone, try to make less use to cut down the hazardous effects.

I am a keen writer on technological issues both in the electronics and home refurbishment areas. I have recently reviewed cell phones in regard to Cell phone radiation with a particular emphasis on the way a cell phone can be used safely.
