Our EMR awareness group had an information stall at the recent Living Community Festival. We were surprised to find many visitors had attached to their mobile phone a hologram sticker, ‘orgonite’ wafer, or the like. They were told it would mitigate the adverse health effects of microwaves.
As an electronics engineer, I would like to advise this is not the case. Instead, such ‘New Age’ products create a false sense of protection that may encourage users to ignore scientifically based methods to reduce exposure. These include holding the phone away from the head, SMS texting, and limiting duration of calls, particularly when reception is weak.
