Consumer Reports: Does Cell Phone Radiation Cause Cancer?

Consumer Reports jumps into the discussion on cell phone radiation and cancer in their November 2015 issue.  Author David Shipper educates readers by covering the background and basics of cell phone radiation then walks them through the full debate including the science of cellular radiation, the completed health studies, and the open questions on the possible relationship between cell phone radiation and cancer.

“As the debate over cell-phone radiation heats up, consumers deserve answers to whether there’s a cancer connection.”

He ends the article with a call for clarity due to the amount of unanswered questions around the effects of cell phone radiation and its possible health effects on the human body.  He especially focuses in on the effects of cellular radiation on children and the lack of testing in this area.

What do you think?  We encourage you to read the article and sound in on the debate in the comments section of it.  We encourage you to let them know what you think and tell them if you use a Pong case to help!

Meet Cell Phone Radiation Expert Dr. Rong Wang

At Pong, the science of mobile device antennas—and ensuring that they interact optimally with both wireless networks and users–is our core focus. We use our deep scientific expertise to protect people from cell phone radiation, and we are proud to have a team of experts covering a range of related disciplines. You may have seen some of Dr. Rong Wang’s articles here on the Pong Pulse, and now we would like officially to introduce her to you.

Dr. Rong WangDr. Rong Wang is the Chief Science Officer for Pong Research. She is a leading member of our scientific team and has been involved with Pong since its inception. Dr. Wang is responsible for the scientific integrity of Pong’s published content and serves as lead technical/scientific writer and media representative on scientific matters. She also participates in product research and development and helps identify and qualify new technologies and applications complementary to Pong. She is our resident expert on the biological and health effects of cell phone radiation and the ongoing studies surrounding this subject.

Background & Training
Dr. Wang received her Ph.D. from the Nuclear Science and Engineering Department of MIT, jointly from the Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology in 2005. Prior to that, she received her bachelor’s degree in Engineering Physics from Tsinghua University in China. Prior to Pong, Dr. Wang spent 5 years in a Los Angeles laboratory as Project Manager and Senior Scientist where she played an important role in a number of technology innovations ranging from medical isotopes to cell phone antenna technology.

Work with Pong
Dr. Wang’s unique and solid training in both engineering and health disciplines from MIT and Harvard empowered her to work with a team of colleagues to develop the early prototypes for Pong’s internationally patented coupling antenna technology. Through her extensive education and research she has become an expert in the field of biological and health effects of radiation, including cell phone radiation.

Dr. Wang is very excited about the opportunity to apply her knowledge and expertise to the field of wireless wellness and performance.  She has already written extensively for the Pong Blog and continues to monitor the ongoing studies around the health effects of cell phone radiation.  We’ve included links to some of her most impactful posts below.

Making Life Clean with Pong and Aquasana

Hi Pong Gang,

Water is the lifeblood of our planet. 70% of our bodies are water and we’re designed to run primarily on H2O and minerals. What’s more, we interact with water all day long in ways other than consumption, from our morning showers and teeth brushing to cooking and cleaning. Whether water is sustaining us, cascading over bodies, or rinsing our dishes, the cleanliness of it has a major impact on our health.

Water Contaminants

People and pollution have had a major impact on water quality. Water is often the settling spot for everything from airborne particles to solid waste. Of course there are large water purification facilities meant to remove all of the nastiness, but even if they manage to get the majority of junk out of your water, the distances from municipal source to your home can be filled with contaminants. There are a lot of old pipes and a lot of horrific chemicals leaching into the ground. Chlorine, lead, asbestos, turbidity, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) – the list goes on.

Aquasana

Aquasana water filters are eco-friendly, affordable, and provide maximum reduction of chemicals and contaminants in water. They offer home drinking water filters, shower filters, and whole house solutions to ensure the water you drink, cook with, and bathe in are as close to pure water as nature intended.

Other ways to clean up exposure in your life

AquasanaPong-liveHealthy

Beyond your water, there are numerous areas in your environment that pose a risk to your health. Getting a handle on them isn’t as daunting as it may seem. Here are a few places to start:

– Eliminate Plastics

When you have the option of natural materials, choose them. When you must use plastic, be sure it’s BPA free plastic. And, remember to never heat up your food or beverages in plastic containers.

– Purify your Air

Simply opening your windows will help improve the quality of the air you breathe. An air purifier and/or indoor plants also make breathing better. Opt for organic or homemade cleaners and detergents. Plus, taking your shoes off at the door can prevent you from tracking in herbicides and other dangerous chemicals you pick up outdoors.

– Go Organic

Eating your fruits and veggies is healthy, right? Not when they are full of harmful pesticides. Choosing organic, especially when eating includes the skins can greatly reduce your exposure. Farmers markets and even local supermarkets offer selections of organic foods. You can even grow your own food using organic soils and mulch, as well as organic or homemade bug spray.

– Reduce EMR Exposure

Radiation comes in two forms. Natural, and man-made. From cosmic radiation emitted by the sun to TVs, cell phones, and microwaves, the human body is exposed to both forms of radiation every day. One of the best ways to reduce your exposure is by limiting the amount coming from your cell phone. PongCase.com offers a great solution that protects you without impeding your phone signal.\

Thanks,

AZ Tech Beat Recommends Pongs

Hi Pong Friends,

I was just in Phoenix a couple of weeks back for a triathlon. Actually, it was Tempe, but it felt like Phoenix to me. Anyway, the entire area seems really hip and in tune with health and wellness.  So when I saw that Phoenix’s own AZTechBeat.com has recommended our Pong cell phone case in its “Gadgets for the Guru: Holiday Gadgets Guide” I just had to share.

Check it out here.

Have a great day,

Pong iPad Case Receives Glowing Review at GoneKlippinKrazy.com

Hi Pong Friends,

Laurel over at GoneKlippinKrazy.com gave a great review of our Pong iPad Case for the iPad 2/3/4.

Here are some of her comments:

“Did you know that Pong is the only iPad case that does not cover its proximity sensor. A proximity sensor on an iPad detects if the iPad is close to the users body. When that sensor is activated it will reduce the iPad’s cellular radio output by up to 85%. This sensor does not recognize the difference between a body and other objects. So if you are not using a patented Pong case it is limiting your iPad’s antenna transmit power. Pong claims to be the only case that allows the iPads to function optimally.

The iPad fit with ease into the case and each corner snapped on to keep it secure. The case itself can be folded into four different positions. You can choose a position for typing, browsing or watching videos. The magnets in the front cover will hold the cover in different folded positions. When I first tried to fold the cover into a stand I was a little confused. Once you realize how to fold it, it becomes second nature.”

Have a great day,
