As we know, all of our smartphones emit radiation which creates troubles on our health. The interview we published with Professor Belpomme, oncologist, on the proven risks of waves on our health confirms this.

The radiation of our smartphones are not all the same.

On the data sheets of all telephones you will find the inscription DAS followed by numbers.

SAR is the acronym for: Specific Absorption Rate. This is a measurement index used by the authorities. This index is measured in watts per kilogram (the absorption rate depends on the nature of the subject)

The European Community has imposed a SAR limit of 2 W/kg: no device exceeding this threshold value can be sold on the European market.

For the moment, it is therefore the precautionary principle that dominates. Scientists thus advise to limit exposure and to remain reasonable. This is why the European standard was created. As a precaution, it corresponds to 50 times less than the threshold considered dangerous.

Beyond this threshold, physical changes can be observed, such as an increase in the temperature of the exposed tissues.

How is the DA S measured?

To perform the measurements, we filled a mold in the shape of a human body and filled it with a liquid imitating human tissue.

During this test we use the smartphone at full power to check that it does not exceed 2W/KG
