Specific Absorption Rate (SAR): How Your Phone is (inadequately) Safety Tested

Do you know how the phone industry tests the safety of your phone?

We are all holding a phone that we assume has been rigorously tested for health and safety right?

It is so important that everyone understands this. Mainstream science has reached an agreement that the only harm that radiation can do to a human cell is to shake off the electron from the atom (this is known as 'ionising' radiation).

To do this takes a certain amount of heat, which is why the only test undertaken by the phone industry is to measure the absorption of heat in a human body. 

The industry standard is to test for what is known as SAR - Specific Absorption Rate (of heat in the body). The limits are set according to what levels of heat are considered dangerous in terms of harming the human cell by the process of ionisation.

These standards have not been changed for 40+ years and have not been reviewed in the light of the epidemic of phone and wireless radiation that has surged exponentially over the last 20 years. 

It is our suspicion that as phones have become more and more powerful, the readings of heat transferred in the tests started to become a little on the dangerous side. Our reason for suspecting this, is because the Terms and Conditions on almost all phones have been changed recently to statements such as this.

Pay careful attention to the sentence circled below: 

SAR testing shows requirement to hold your phone 1.5cm away from your body

To position the phone 1.5cm away from the body means to never touch it. These are touchphones! 

So a device has been built with a specific purpose and yet you are advised not to use it for that purpose. Of course, this means never putting your phone against your ear either. Is the world going mad..?!? 

Sadly, the shortcomings do not stop there. 

We have picked out the following inadequacies in the testing of SAR as a reliable standard for judging health and safety: 

  1. SAR is not a biological test.
    This means that no animal is used in testing, let alone a human being. 
    Why is this worrying? Because it is the electrical current in live human cells and its reaction to the imbalanced wave field of radiation that is important here. It's a question of the 'Law of Resonance', the way that human cells absorb the rhythm of the radiation and become imbalanced. A plastic dummy will not show this. 
  2. Only 'thermal' effects are tested. 
    Why is this worrying? Because over 6,000 scientific tests (on rats) have shown serious non-thermal health effects to have been caused by microwave radiation (from cancer to mental disorders to DNA strand breaks to infertility). You can see the list of these studies here. 
  3. Testing with a phone at least 5mm away from the plastic skin
    It feels weird that we are saying 'plastic skin' in a test of such gravitas and impact on the health of the whole human race. Why is that so worrying? Because we all touch our phones!! We hold them against our ears most of the time. 


To summarise, we have over 6,000 peer-reviewed science studies showing that EMF causes non-thermal health effects and serious disease. 

And we have one single industry test consisting of a plastic model of a human being (called 'SAM' - the Specific Anthropomorphic Mannequin), which tests only for thermal effects of radiation. 

Omnia is unique in that we have knowledge of why phone radiation causes non-thermal health effects. You can find that in our 'Understanding Radiation' section. 

Unless you find a way to measure the response between the electrical current in living cells and the electrified, imbalanced wave fields of microwave radiation, then you are not doing an effective 'safety test'. 

The world will soon catch up to this understanding but for now.. let's have a look at these two 'Twits' in this video, marvelling at the advanced robot technology that tests our phone safety - using a plastic model of a human filled with fake blood, and holding a phone 5mm away or more from the plastic skin. 

Yes, seriously.. 

We leave you with a quote from this video: 

"I leave my (cellphone) in a safe place next to my heart". 

The world is in need of a wake-up call.
