Novato, CA (PRWEB) November 19, 2013
Green Swan Inc., a champion of safer cell phone usage, today announced the official launch of The Cell Spacer™, a device that puts distance between a mobile phone user’s head and headset to help consumers ensure compliance with FCC and industry standard regulations for safer cell phone use. The launch of The Cell Spacer comes amid increasing concern in Europe for consumer safety when using mobile devices.
"It is important that people understand that there are real risks associated with exposure to the radiation emitted by cell phones and similar gadgets," says Olle Johansson, Ph.D. at Sweden’s Karolinska Institute in the Department of Neuroscience. "We know that exposure to this radiation may impact DNA, leading to possible cancer risks, and also affects male and female germ cells and fertility. Beyond government regulations, it is imperative that each person educates themself and employs safer methods when using their mobile devices. The complete lack of biologically-based exposure standards or hygienic safety levels by our health protection agencies, and the lack of preventive actions, can turn out to be a huge mistake. To not act today would be deemed ethically and morally completely corrupt in the future."
The reclassification of cell phone radiation as a "carcinogenic hazard" in May of 2011 by the World Health Organization’s International Agency on Research for Cancer (IARC) was a key turning point in the battle to shed light on the connection between exposure to cell phone radiation and adverse health effects. However, while the U.S. remains idle in spite of ever mounting studies, many European nations are pursuing precautions to reduce childhood exposure to cell phone radiation and help their citizens’ use their mobile devices more safely. Below are just some recent actions by leading European nations to better protect their citizens.
With The Cell Spacer, users have the ability to ensure safer cell phone usage without the need for equipment that requires batteries, charging or tangled wires and offers the following benefits:
