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 Bluetooth headphones cause cancer?
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 headsets safe to use?
Yes, and they’re certainly safer than cell phones alone. Whether you’re worried about health risks from radiation or distracted driving, Bluetooth headsets serve to reduce those risks. Although that should not prevent you from exercising common sense when on the road.
Is Bluetooth safer than WiFi?
Bluetooth Security Worse Than WiFi. WiFi security is capturing attention everywhere, from airports to coffee shops. But with the growing number of Bluetooth-ready laptops, security experts say the personal area network wireless technology could pose more of a hacking risk than your average WiFi network.
