However, most other scientists still hesitate to say there is conclusive evidence that the small doses of radiation from cellphones and Bluetooth headsets are dangerous.
“They don’t have enough energy to cause cancer by directly damaging the DNA inside cells,” according to the American Cancer Society.
Are Bluetooth headphones safe?
In general, the amount of radiation Bluetooth headphones emit is significantly less than what’s generated from a typical cell phone, according to Moskowitz. While Bluetooth and wireless headphones do emit lower levels of radiation compared to a cell phone, their placement is a big concern to some health experts.
Is Bluetooth harmful to health?
No. The ability of Bluetooth to harm someone boils down to its ability to affect cells, and DNA. However, Bluetooth isn’t a type of radio frequency electromagnetic radiation (RF EMR) capable of causing cancer.
Do wireless headphones cause radiation?
Yes, it’s true that wireless Bluetooth headphones emit radiation. Bluetooth devices also give off less radiation than cell phones—only about one-tenth or less, Foster points out.
Are truly wireless earbuds safe?
But, is it safe? Yes, the Bluetooth used in wireless headphones works similarly to WiFi but its frequencies are very low and are not considered dangerous for human use. For reference, they emit such a low frequency that it’s a thousand time less than a standard cell phone.
