IN a bid to curb technological accidents that can be caused by the use of electronic gadgets like cellphones, a local company, Crystal Vision Investments, is now providing cellphone radiation protection. The radiation protecting product is called Sar Shield, which dissipates high frequency electromagnetic energy. Attenuating the electromagnetic field by up to 89 per cent, the biological effects on the user and anyone standing nearby are greatly reduced, below levels that are considered dangerous by the FDA.This was revealed by Crystal Vision’s sales and marketing director Sabie Nxumalo. “ In reducing the levels of radiation, SAR Shield reduces the suspected effects that exposure to intensive levels of high frequency electromagnetic energy cause, such as loss of memory, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer, Leukaemia, headaches, and brain tumours. SAR Shield has been independently tested, using FCC and Industry Canada approved SAR testing guidelines,” she said.“As the world progresses technologically, there are a lot of dangers that come with it and with the use of cell phones that have become a bigger part of our lives, we need to find a way to protect ourselves. That is why as Crystal vision investments we have found it fitting to introduce SAR shied,” she said. Nxumalo said cell phones send electromagnetic waves into users’ brains. With different cell phone models sold in the market, they have a specific measurement of how much microwave energy from the phone can penetrate the brain. Depending on how close the cell phone antenna is to the head, as much as 60 per cent of the microwave radiation is absorbed by and actually penetrates the area around the head, some reaching an inch to an inch-and-a-half into the brain. “The World Health Organisation has designated radio-frequency fields like those from mobile phones as ‘possibly carcinogenic’. Radiation from cell phones has been classified as a possible cancer risk by the WHO after a major review of the effects of electromagnetic waves on human health. The declaration was based on evidence in published studies that intensive use of mobile phones might lead to an increased risk of glioma, a malignant form of brain cancer,” she said.
