A 2014 Swedish study involving 1498 malignant brain tumor patients and 3,530 controls (people without a brain tumor) found an increased risk of malignant brain tumor associated with long-term use of cell phones and cordless phones. The study analyzed data from two previous studies with patients diagnosed between 1997-2003 and 2007-2009 in Sweden. The pooled analysis showed a clear trend of higher risk with longer wireless phone use. Specifically, the risk was 3 times higher for people who used wireless phones for 25 years or longer. The results resonate with a 2014 French study which found that heavy cell phone...

Your mobile phone is smart. Now the case for your mobile device can be, too. alara Research introduces the world’s first Intelligent Case. The alara case pairs with your device to redirect wireless energy for optimized protection and performance. All mobile devices use radio-frequency (RF) electromagnetic waves to communicate. The devices contain antennas to transmit and receive wireless signals. Unlike traditional cases, the alara case is embedded with a custom-engineered antenna system that passively interacts with your device when you snap it on. Specifically, copper elements plated in gold, yet thinner than a human hair, are precisely engineered in size,...

As cell phones and other wireless devices become increasingly popular, there is a growing concern over the possible health impact of wireless technology. Science is still inconclusive on whether cell phone radiation is safe or harmful to humans. Consumers are often confused by conflicting study results and mixed media messages. This article is intended to explain the primary causes of the scientific dilemma and offer some suggestions on how to interpret scientific findings in the field of cell phone radiation and human health. Cell phone radiation is a form of electromagnetic radiation (EMR) in the radio-frequency (RF) range. Since the...

The mobile device landscape has dramatically changed during the past ten years. As a popular wireless technology, Wi-Fi uses the radio-frequency bands of 2.4 and 5 GHz for data exchange among wireless devices. Devices that transmit Wi-Fi signals are not just commonplace, they have become an essential part of our lives. So, it’s only natural that the biological and health effects of these devices have become the subject of many on-going scientific studies. While the research community is performing scientifically rigorous studies and carefully weighing the evidence, five Danish ninth-grade school girls have taken matters in to their own hands....
