Cell Phone Radiation Levels per Phone

Environmental Working Group releases the first hard data on the radiation emitted by over 1,200 of the most common cell phones.

Scientists and researches have been divided on how much radiation the body can tolerate being emitted from a cell phone.

The FCC limits Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) measured in watts per kilogram (W/kg) for partial-body exposure including the head to 1.6 W/kg. Generally the lower the SAR the lower the health risk posed by the cell phone.
