Echoing Taylor’s concerns, he added: "Besides the peak RF exposure from Bluetooth devices, which is what the SAR measures, we need to be concerned about the cumulative RF exposure, as people may keep these devices on all day long."
Coates says, "Consumers don’t need wait for two inch stickers on the back of a cell phone warning of the risk to pregnant woman and children when simple smartphone accessories and safe phone usage can reduce cell phone radiation exposure now."
Coates says "When a cell phone is attached to a belt or in a pocket/purse radiation can penetrate the area near the cell phone handset. This radiant energy is absorbed much faster than at your head because tissues and organs such as liver, kidneys and reproductive organs provide much better conductivity than the skull. Major organs have no bone protection like the brain does. To avoid microwave exposure to vital organs and/or fetal development when using a cell phone next to the body, a deflective barrier “RF Safe Pocket Shield, Purse Shield or Flip Case Shield” must be used between the body and cell phone handset itself to prevent excessive cell phone radiation levels from exceeding the FCC's SAR guidelines."
...The smartest call any smart phone user can make is to ensure they have taken every step to avoid unnecessary health risk.” "Reducing RF exposure to the brain is addressing only part of the iPhone radiation, when carried in a pocket, the phone is often closer than the 10mm distance between the phone and users body, as instructed in the iPhone's user manual" Coates adds
