Wireless earbuds like Apple's Airpods are everywhere these days. But scientists are warning that the tiny Bluetooth devices could bring a greater risk of cancer. Over 250 scientists have signed on to a UN and World Health Organization petition warning that the earbuds carry a possible cancer risk, due to the electromagnetic waves generated so close to the inner skull. While researchers are still exploring the effects of low-level EMF exposure, high levels of EMF can be carcinogenic and damaging to cell growth.
I feel like everything around us has the capacity to cause cancer if exposed for too long. If you have them, like my husband does, my suggestion is to wear then as little as possible. You know, just when you are actually using them. But what do I know?
