Pong, a company that specializes in technologically advanced phone cases, introduced a new smart phone case which they claim to reduce reduce phone antenna radiation.
With regards to the terrible effects of cell phone radiation, the World Health Organization (WHO) said that it is possibly cancer causing for humans.
One recent study concludes that brain activity at the area near the phone will be affected with just fifty minutes of phone use.
The Pong case is said to be made from NASA spacecraft material. The company claims that they have created a solution to the cellphone radiation problem with this new casing.
According to Ryan McCaughey, CTO of Pong, “..we reduce [radiation] by up to 95 percent below current safety limits.”
Pong mentioned that the problem stems from the microwave radiation being emitted by smart phones during calls, which get absorbed by bodies and heads of users.
It can take more than ten years before the effects of radiation manifests, so how do we identify if the case has been effective at redirecting radiation away from our bodies or not?
According to McCaughey, thorough testing has been done to ensure the effectiveness of their product.
He stated that their laboratory tests, and other independent laboratory tests have validated the 95 percent reduction of radiation below the safety limits currently recognized.
On the other hand, McCaughey mentioned that no one really knows for sure what the safety limit is, but they are “of the feeling that less exposure to radiation is better, and that’s what Pong is providing.”
