Believing they are a safe alternative to placing a cellular phone against their head, many people use hands-free headsets and attach the phone to their belt or purse. Studies and tests conducted in the United Kingdom have proven headsets are not safe, resulting in the British government reversing their recommendation advising consumers to use hands-free headsets as safety devices:
During January, 1998 Aegis was the first company to advise its customers and dealers about the risks associated with using a headset, and the first publicized tests investigating hands-free headset safety were commissioned and reported by the Sunday Mirror in July, 1999. Additional tests using procedures other than Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) standards that are endorsed by regulatory agencies worldwide to determine cellular phone safety were commissioned by the British consumer organization Which? during April 2000. They reported a 300+% increase of cellular phone radiation penetrating the head while using a headset.
In response to the Which? findings, the British government commissioned SAR tests by an independent laboratory in July, 2000. They reported a 90% reduction of cellular phone radiation penetrating the head while using a headset. Newspapers worldwide published articles describing the 390% variance between the studies that fueled the controversy over SAR standards and test procedures being flawed.
During October, 2000 and in response to the British government report, Which? commissioned another series of tests by the same laboratory they had used in April. They tested 5 mobile phone models and 2 different headsets per phone, and the results were the same as the first tests. Which? then commissioned the laboratory that performed the British government tests to conduct SAR tests using the same phones and headsets. These SAR results were also the same as the first SAR test, however Which? discovered and reported why the test results were different. As a result and during December, 2000, the British government reversed their earlier health approval recommendation advising consumers to use hands-free headsets as safety devices.
The health effects when
using a headset with a cellular phone are largely unknown and will require
considerable time to be resolved. During February, 2001 the first
describing a headset related health condition called 'Acoustic Shock'
began circulating in Europe.
