Health Risks From Cell Phones

The RF electromagnetic energy generated by cell phones can penetrate your body. The depth of penetration and the amount of energy you absorb depends on many factors, such as how close you hold the cell phone to your body and how strong the signal is. The important indication of RF exposure is the rate of energy absorbed in your body. This is called the “specific absorption rate” or SAR and it is measured in watts (unit of power) per kilogram.
