Cell Phone Radiation Risks - Now I have seen it all

November 24, 2010
There has been a wide array of cell phone radiation protection devices such as antenna shields, cell phone holders/covers, gloves and hats but now there is Belly Armor. It claims to protect an unborn child from everyday radiation from sources ranging from cell phones to WiFi with a material that is provided to act as a Faraday cage. It comes in various forms such as a blanket, belly band and tee.

I have not seen any evidence that non-ionizing radiation does any damage to the body other than heating from very high power sources. The FCC has set conservative limits on the power levels of cell phones and other devices in order to protect the public but there are still many concerns about long term exposure to various sources of radiation.

Can anyone point to any conclusive reports or studies that I have missed? What do you think??
