Cancerblock Android App Helps Reduce Possible Cellphone Radiation Exposure
Jan 19, 2011 12:00 PM –
Do cell phones generate radiation exposure for users? That’s the question, and the answers are not yet clear. According to Olga Naidenko, PhD, a senior scientist and lead study author with the Environmental Working Group, “We would like to be able to say that cell phones are safe, but we can’t. He explains “The most recent science – while not conclusive – raises serious issues about the cancer risk of cell phone use that must be addressed through further research. [But we] can take steps to re- duce exposure [now].”
The app Cancerblock touts its market appeal of limiting exposure to radiant energy emitting from a cell phone while “significantly improving battery life,” according to company press materials. Here’s how it works: you, the user, decide how often the cell phone should automatically shift into a default mode which turns off all four cell phone radiation energy sources – antenna, WI-FI, GPS and Bluetooth – and limits exposure to both the known and unknown side effects of extended cell phone use. For example, based on a default of 15 minutes off and one minute on, this android app claims to reduce radiation exposure by 9,408 minutes in one week or a total reduction of 93.33%.
At a cost of a $2.99 download, with 10% being donated to a cancer research organization, a simple interface allows the app user to customize the default according to their schedule. iPhone 3 and 4 operating system apps are under development. Download the app with convenient features below:
