Is your Phone Killing You?


Remember the duet ‘endless love’
By Lionel Richie and Diana Ross.
Remember these lines from the song
‘My love, there’s only you in my life
The only thing that’s bright
My first love
You’re every breath that I take
You’re every step I make
And I, I want to share
All my love with you
No one else will do’

That’s more like the
Relationship between most
People and their phone(s).

But sha oh…..
What is the SAR of your phone?
All wireless devices emit radio waves
Which can be absorbed by the body.
The measure of the rate of absorption
By our body while using a wireless device
Is called Specific Absorption Rate (SAR).

Phones become health risks
If the SAR level is more than
1.6 watts per kilogram (1.6 W/kg)

How do you know the
SAR of your phone?
Dial the USSD code*#07#
If higher than 1.6W/kg
Then …..wahala dey oh.

In that case
Instead of listening to
‘Endless love’
You may just do well
Listening to ‘Killing me softly’
Either the version
By Roberta Flack
Or the one by the Fugges.

It won a Grammy after all!
