FEAR Scientists say there is a potential cancer risk

AirPods are particularly concerning due to their proximity to the brain, although there is no sufficient research on Bluetooth itself.

Around the globe scientists are increasingly growing concerned over potential health risks of wireless technology in which they say national and worldwide regulations fail to limit, and new technologies are constantly arriving all the time due to trendy customers that can't seem to get enough of them in their attempts of keeping up with the Jones'. "Can't imaging this possibly being all that great for you".

He is among the large group of scientists to have signed a petition calling for "protection" from the technology.

While high levels of EMF waves can cause burns and impact cell-growth in humans, it isn't clear what can result with prolonged exposure to the low amount of EMF waves produced by devices like the AirPods. These waves are similar to UV rays or X raysbut are not as powerful.

Animals exposed to these forms of radiation have been observed to develop reproductive, genetic, and neurological damage which has become more common in those animals than would be expected.

NIH has published further evidence of cellular transmission causing certain kinds of cancer.

Bluetooth, which allows data to be transferred wirelessly through the use of electromagnetic frequency (EMF) radio waves, may be especially unsafe when placed close to one's head.

The scientists wrote, 'Numerous recent scientific publications have shown that EMF affects living organisms at levels well below most global and national guidelines.
