Why wireless headphones are dangerous?
More than 250 scientists say wireless headphones are dangerous. Why wireless headphones are dangerous?
Wireless headphones such as Airpods are said to be harmful to health and increase the risk of cancer by the proximity of Bluetooth to the brain. This is the observation drawn up by more than 250 scientists from 40 different countries, who have joined forces to sign a petition addressed to the United Nations and the World Health Organization (WHO).
These scientists are in fact engaged in studying the biological and medical effects of non-ionizing electromagnetic fields (EMF).
And their concerns relate to all wireless devices, which therefore includes the telephone in a more general way, but also Wifi, babys phones and wireless headphones with the Bluetooth system. These, placed directly in the ear canal, release high levels of waves.

Adverse effects (undesired harmful effect) of waves on ALL plants and animals
According to them, EMFs increase the risk of cancer or genetic damage, could lead to changes in the reproductive system, impaired learning and memorization, or neurological disorders. In a very general way, these technologies would influence the general well-being of individuals… but not only.
What damages? – wireless headphones are dangerous
“The damage goes far beyond the human species: clear and growing evidence shows the harmful effects of waves on ALL plants and animals (from a single cell, to bees and mammals) », They specify in this petition.
According to scientists, the recommendations of the International Commission for the Protection against Non-Ionizing Radiation (ICNIRP: International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection) are not sufficient. “They do not take into account long-term exposure, nor the effects generated by low-intensity fields” and would therefore be “insufficient to effectively protect human health and nature as a whole”.
