MIAMI – Those who use wireless headphones such as Apple AirPods are being warned of possible cancer risks due to Bluetooth technology.
Scientists say the type of electromagnetic frequency radiowave (EMF) that transmits data through the devices can cause serious health problems.
The threat is so great, nearly 250 experts have signed a United Nations and World Health Organization petition to warn of the dangers, WSB reports.
Along with cancer, neurological disorders and DNA damage are linked to EMF exposure as they can generate heat, cause burns and affect cell growth in humans.
"Numerous recent scientific publications have shown that EMF affects living organisms at levels well below most international and national guidelines." The petition claims.
The scientists say EMF warnings about possible dangers are not good enough.
