Brain Cancer Rate Could be Determined by Your Cell Phone Company

Mar. 27, 2013 – BERKELEY, Calif. — A new study found that the average amount of microwave radiation your head absorbs when you use your cell phone for voice communications is greater if your phone company employs GSM technology (i.e., AT&T or T-Mobile) than if it uses CDMA technology  (i.e., Verizon or Sprint):

• “… the dominant factor for SARs during use is the time-averaged antenna input power, which may be much less than the maximum power used in testing. This factor is largely defined by the communication system; e.g., the GSM phone average output can be higher than CDMA by a factor of 100.” (1)

The Telecom industry and consumer organizations ignore cell phone carrier differences and focus only on the Specific Absorption Rate or SAR of different cell phone models when they provide precautionary safety information to the public. Read More
