How Safe Are Bluetooth Devices?

How safe are your Bluetooth Devices? To answer this question, you need to know about what is Bluetooth technology and how does this work for us.

Bluetooth is a technology standard for short distance data exchange using Short Wave radio transmission. This is also used to create a Personal Area Network between computers and other mobile devices. Bluetooth was originally introduced by Ericsson in 1994 as a replacement to the serial communication standard RS 232. It is now managed by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group. There should be a master Bluetooth device which acts as a base station and it can communicate with up to seven devices. Almost every notebook computer is Bluetooth enabled. We have mobile phones, headsets with and without microphone which work on Bluetooth technology. We can transfer files between Bluetooth enabled devices without really having to set up a local area network. Audio and video communication is also possible with the Bluetooth technology.

Any Bluetooth device will emit wireless microware radiation, which is harmful in the long run. Since the wavelength of microwave frequencies is very short, they can travel long distance carrying signals. They can also penetrate the living tissues down to the cell level. Any wireless technology is exposing you to a field of microwave radiation. Microwave radiation can affect your biological balance and it can even pass on the effects to your offspring genetically damaging cells.

Diseases like cancer, brain tumour, hair-loss, etc. are some of the side effects of exposing one to the microwave radiations. Ears, eyes and brain are exposed to microwave radiations when you use Bluetooth headsets.

There are chances of finding blindness, deafness, neck pain, skin rashes, and headache as well as brain tumour among those who consistently use Bluetooth headsets for longer hours. Bluetooth devices and Mobile phones have the same type of microwave radiations. While a mobile phone receives/transmits signals from/to a cell phone tower or a satellite, the Bluetooth devices communicates with a master Bluetooth device at a very short distance. There is even a case of stomach pain reported due to the use of Bluetooth devices.

The effects of Bluetooth devices are much lower than the radiation effects created by your cell phones because they operate at low power levels. You may recall that talking on a cell phone for a long time; you will feel your cell phone as well as your ears becoming hot.

Regulatory bodies have stipulated strict standards against exposure to wireless radiations and when you buy a Bluetooth device, check for the “Specific Absorption Rate”, which is a measure of the radiation reaching the body tissue. A maximum of 1.6 watts/kg has been set by the US and Canadian governments.

There are mixed responses about health hazards on using Bluetooth headsets. But given the fact that it is also a microwave radiation enabled device, care should be taken while buying one for you and try to avoid constant use of the same to safeguard your health.

It has come to a stage that one cannot survive without Mobile phones. Where it was normal headphones and earphones used as hands-free devices, it is now Bluetooth headsets. There is risk with earphones as well as headphones, but not that serious like devices which have harmful radiations.
