It's a jungle out there. The dividing line between truth, fiction, what will protect you, and what won't has never been less clearly defined.

Washington, DC (PRWEB) January 11, 2014

According to RF Safe, there are a growing number of products coming onto the market that make statements which claim to offer protection from mobile phone radiation/emissions and simply do not work.

It's been over a decade ago that RF Safe Founder, John Coates first gained the support of Good Housekeeping Magazine in an effort to stop companies from making false claims about certain kinds of so-called shielding products ability to provide protection from cell phone radiation.

With so many different cell phone radiation shielding products to choose from, it can be confusing trying to understand which ones really work and how to use a cell phone as safe as possible.

Coates said;"It's a jungle out there. The dividing line between truth, fiction, what will protect you, and what won't has never been less clearly defined. Since the advent of the digital information explosion, the sea of information has been growing at a pace that few can follow. However, if we are to be responsible and seek the truth, we must persevere. RF Safe is dedicated to the truth and providing only the best RF safety solutions .

RF Safe touts a line of cell phone safety accessories that no cell phone user should be without. All the safety accessories sold by RF Safe work on scientifically proven technologies commonly used for shielding or reducing microwave radiation exposure.

Not all companies can be held to such high standards, like those still selling the same products that the FTC went after over 10 years ago. On February 20, 2002 - the FTC took action, File Number: 012-3098 Civil Action Number: 02-CV-80131 Federal Court: Southern District of Florida http://www.ftc.gov/sites/default/files/documents/cases/2002/02/sv1cmp.pdf

The companies named in the FTC's complaint are Stock Value 1 Inc., of Boca Raton, Fla., and Comstar Communications Inc., of West Sacramento, Calif. In the complaints, filed in Florida and California, the government said it wants to shut down the companies and have them give refunds to customers.

Both companies advertised through television, radio, print ads and the Internet, making false claims about scientific proof backing their products, the FTC said.

The Stock Value 1 promoted products called "SafeTShield" and "NoDanger," both metallic fiber patches for placement over cellular and cordless telephone earpieces, the FTC said. Comstar described its "WaveShield 1000" product as about the size of a penny and able to block "radiation entering the soft tissue of the ear canal."

RF Safe is running this press release today simply because these very same products are on the market again offering people a false sense of protection. It's RF Safe intention to bring attention to media and the FTC that consumers are being put in harm’s way again.

A quick Google search for "Waveshield 1000" returns 24,000 results. https://www.google.com/search?q=waveshield+1000 Many popular sites like eBay and Amazon both profit from selling products that the FTC has already said made false claims of providing protection from cell phone radiation.

Consumers must beware, as major online retailers are selling cell phone radiation shields allowing their venders to make false claims. Consumers need to research how to best shield cell phone radiation exposure, and deal directly with the company behind trusted safety products - not third party vender sites selling products that don't provide radiation protection, while making claims they do.

RF Safe is the first to say that there is no magic safety accessory which protects you completely from cell phone radiation. RF Safe reminds consumers that to truly maximize their safety when using a cell phone, users must adopt the safest phone habits along with using RF Safe approve cell phone radiation safety accessories.
