Wireless Headphones Could Increase Cancer Risk

According to scientists…

Wireless earbuds like Apple’s Airpods are everywhere these days, but scientists are warning that the tiny Bluetooth devices could bring a greater risk of cancer.

Over 250 scientists have signed on to a UN and World Health Organization petition warning that the earbuds carry a possible cancer risk, due to the electromagnetic waves generated so close to the inner skull. While researchers are still exploring the effects of low-level EMF exposure, high levels of EMF can be carcinogenic and damaging to cell growth.

Apple has previously responded to concerns about radiation risk.

“Apple products are always designed and tested to meet or exceed all safety requirements,” Apple spokesperson Alex Kirschner said in 2016 when the devices first launched.

Do you use wireless Bluetooth earbuds? Are you more concerned about the health risks or about losing them?
