Can wireless earbuds cause cancer?
Wireless earbuds have been the talk of the decade since Apple introduced its AirPods back in 2016. Now it’s the start of a new decade and wireless earbuds are one of the most technologically used devices.
All the other lead companies have also introduced their own specific set of wireless earbuds, from Samsung to Xiaomi. Coming to the point for how do wireless earbuds actually work.
How do wireless earbuds tend to function?
Wireless earbuds are basically devices with no wires which connect to electronic devices using Bluetooth connection. They tend to work by pairing with the device you want to use. They can transmit audio signals up to 10 meters and operate at 2.5 mW peak transmission power.
Whether you opt for a single earbud or both, you can enjoy the many benefits of Bluetooth connectivity. From fuss-free usability, thanks to their wireless design, to wind noise protection and top-quality sound. Bluetooth headsets make talking and listening to music on the go easy.
But all of that depends upon whether the wireless earbud device you are using is of good quality. If these earbuds that one possesses produce radiations due to bad bass and low sound quality they might lead to cancer.
There’s a certain level of radiation that a human body can tolerate. There is a term that determines a human body’s capacity for radiation endurance. This term is called the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR).
This technique is used to determine how much energy is absorbed by the human body from the radiofrequency electromagnetic field. It is measured in watts per kilogram (W / kg), and regular is used.
What kind of cancer are we talking about?
According to some scientists that determine the readings of SAR, they introduced the concept that the use of wireless earbuds may lead to cancer.
Yes, indeed they referred to brain cancer being the potential risk one might have to face if they wanna use this tech. But this is just a theory.
There’s no conclusive evidence that AirPods or other wireless earbuds are dangerous. There’s really no evidence that radio-frequency (RF) radiation can cause brain cancer or noncancerous brain tumors in people.
It all depends upon the quality and level of sound being generated. If the quality of the earbuds is impressive and the sound level is enough that intensive radiation will not be generated.
Then there might never occur a case of brain cancer which has never even popped up even now anyway. And yes, it is possible that the body of a person will be able to circumvent the cancerous effects associated with such radiation.
