highest and lowest radiation cell phonesMany studies have revealed that excess exposure to cell phones radiation can increase the risk of brain tumors. Therefore we must pay more attention to the radiation levels of a cell phone. Purchase a cell phone with the lowest SAR value that you can find.

SAR (specific absorbed radiation) is a way of measuring the amount of radiation in watts absorbed by a kilogram of body tissue. The lower the SAR value the less radiation the phone emits.

For a phone to pass FCC (Federal Communications Commission) certification and be sold in the US, its maximum SAR level must be less than 1.6 watts per kilogram. In the UK, the level is set to 2 watts per kilogram.
