Signal Bars On Your Cell Phone Display

Here's something interesting. Take a look at the signal bars on your cell phone. Obviously, the more bars the better the signal. Of course, if you think this through this could mean that you're fairly close to a cell phone tower. That's not a good thing. After all, who wants to live close to a cell phone tower? However, the farther away the nearest base station is the more power is needed to carry the signal to make the connection. Therefore, the fewer number of bars on your phone the worse off you are because more power is being generated by your cell phone to maintain the connection. When more power is generated from your phone there is greater exposure to the head from the near-field plume. The near-field plume extends out a distance of 6-8 inches in all directions from the phone's antenna. So, in reality, the intensity of the plume determines how much tissue really gets exposed. But, keep in mind, the near-field plume is not the primary source of damage by cell phones. The information-carrying radio wave (ICRW) is the primary cause of damage. This subject has been discussed elsewhere on this blog. Because the ICRW, and not the radiation intensity, is the main source of damage, many of the products and devices on the market today that profess protection from the radiation really don't provide adequate protection, if any. This is mainly because many of the technologies being sold today don't address or provide protection from the information-carrying radio wave. Always look at and read carefully the scientific studies on the product you are considering. You should always expect independent peer-reviewed published studies proving the technology works. Good testimonials and theory don't cut it.
