Most probably many of you guys love to use Bluetooth headsets. These Bluetooth headsets are comfortable and stylish at the same time. But the question is, are they harmful to your health, and do they cause cancer? If they really cause cancer then it is a big threat to the mankind. But we need to know that at which cost this technology comes to us. Because, if headphones are harmful than we have stopped using headsets at no time. So we need to know Does Bluetooth headsets cause cancer. That’s why Today, we will talk about the reality of Bluetooth headphones can cause cancer. Is the fact really true or just another fake things.
Bluetooth is a data sharing wireless technology that shares data in short distances using short wavelength radio frequency. The technology calls ‘frequency hopping spread spectrum’. This technology offers us the opportunity to share data wirelessly.
Bluetooth devices are the device that accepts Bluetooth technology to share data wirelessly. 95% gadgets come with Bluetooth technology these days. They create a network using the Bluetooth technology. As you can see now all good headphones are nowadays coming with latest Bluetooth technology, you must know whether it’s going to affect you something or not.
Types of frequency levels of Bluetooth transmitters
The Bluetooth transmitted frequencies are of three types, these are
Class 1 transmitter —
these have a range of 100 meters and peak transmission power of 100 mW (mill watt), these are the most powerful.
Class 2 transmitters —
they work over a range of 10 meters and circulates within 2.5 mW peak transmission power, usually familiar to mobiles
Class 3 transmitters —
they have a range of fewer than 10 meters and have a peak transmission power of 1 mW, these are the weakest ones.
Does Bluetooth headsets really cause cancer?
Well, this is a big question. The scientists are not at one stage regarding this topic. Maybe this is due to some outside pressure and manipulation. The American Cancer Society showed in their report that the wireless headphones decrease the SAR level than the mobile. Thus wireless headsets are not so much harmful according to them I guess.
But the World health organization (WHO) told with every confidence that these wireless headsets cause some threats to our health. According to them the frequency radiated by the devices is very dangerous.
The range of frequency wave of Bluetooth devices is from 2.4 GHz to 2.4835 GHz. the microwave frequency range is lower than some devices. But the question is what are they safe. Well, some in govt. Agencies have claimed that the Bluetooth headsets are not safe. Because the wave emitted by Bluetooth is microwave and this kind of wave have a rapid rate of oscillation for traveling a long distance. As they had a large rate of oscillation then they are harmful and may cause cancer.
Are Bluetooth headsets able
to minimize the SAR
Some of the organizations tell that the Bluetooth headsets lower the SAR effect, so there is no danger to use these headsets. But some researchers show that the maximum wireless headphones do not minimize the SAR value, which may cause cancer. Though there are some headsets decrease the level. There are mixed results. So, while buying a new headset you must check the SAR value.
Other effects of Bluetooth headsets
The longtime use of wireless headsets may cause the following diseases
- Brain tumors
- Birth defects
- Autoimmune illness
- Suicidal tendency
- Multiple sclerosis
Bluetooth headphones are also found to be reason behind the following
- Neck pain
- Skin Rashes
So many times, so many researchers and so many results, this topic is always a controversial topic. Maybe this is due to some external manipulations or pressure. But the public is still unknown to the actual results. Does Bluetooth headsets cause cancer is still a major question? So it is up to you guys now. In this artic, e I have tried to display some sides and some factors. But the ultimate decision is on you. So think deeply and decide.
