Hey Pong Friends,
Check out this great article titled “Do Cellphones Cause Radiation” which appeared on USAToday.com and was written by Kim Komando host of The Kim Komando Show:
Do Cellphones Cause Radiation
I imagine you’re like me. You have least considered the idea that the phone you hold flat up against your ear day after day might have detrimental health effects. But then you shirk the concept and attribute it to a brief case of paranoia. After all, if cellphones did cause cancer, wouldn’t people be openly talking about it?

Although there is still no definitive answer whether cell phone radiation is harmful to human health, Pong, along with many other experts and health organizations around the world recommends the adoption of the “Precautionary Principle” on this matter. So what does this mean?
The Precautionary Principle
The Precautionary Principle is a policy of social responsibility aimed at protecting the public and environment from possible harm when the scientific community has validated a plausible risk. It is essentially a common sense based “better safe than sorry” approach suggesting that action should be taken to avoid harm even when it is not certain to occur.

As cell phones and other wireless devices become increasingly popular, there is a growing concern over the possible health impact of wireless technology. Science is still inconclusive on whether cell phone radiation is safe or harmful to humans. Consumers are often confused by conflicting study results and mixed media messages. This article is intended to explain the primary causes of the scientific dilemma and offer some suggestions on how to interpret scientific findings in the field of cell phone radiation and human health.

As global cell phone subscription soared from 12.4 million in 1990 to 7 billion in 2013, cell phones have become a universal and indispensable tool for modern life.
Cell phones emit low-intensity radio-frequency (RF) energy, a type of non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation (EMR). When you hold your cell phone next to your head or wear it on your body, you can absorb over 50% of the transmitted RF energy. While cell phones bring enormous convenience to our lives, the possible health consequences of exposure to cell phone radiation have aroused considerable public attention and scientific debate.

If you look at our new Pong gold-themed smartphone and iPad® cases, you might think to yourself “that’s exactly what I had in mind!” That’s exactly the reaction we’re hoping for because you, our customers, are the chief inspiration behind this new design. We frequently receive requests from users who want to actually see the Pong technology that makes their cases so unique. The new lattice design on the back lets you see the technology that protects your head and body from wireless energy. We like to call this the fusion of art and science: we use gold plating to protect the Pong antenna from the elements, and the result is an eye-catching, stylish case.

Mobile devices are becoming increasingly popular in modern lives. Most teens — 85% of those aged 14 to 17 — have cell phones. So do 69% of 11-14 year olds and 31% of kids aged 8-10, according to a 2010 survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation. The average age at which kids get their first phones has declined steadily during the past decade. For parents, it becomes an important, and sometimes difficult decision to make when to give their kids a mobile phone.

At Pong, we are committed to protecting people from the potential dangers of cell phone radiation. Everything we do is grounded in science, and we don’t make claims that we cannot validate. We believe that cell phone radiation is a serious issue, even though research is still being done to determine the effects that exposure has on our brains and bodies.
Unfortunately, many companies have sought to exploit concerns about cell phone radiation with scams aimed at taking advantage of worried consumers. Recently the Better Business Bureau warned consumers to be on the lookout for scammers selling “shields” and other questionable devices that supposedly protect cell phone users from the radiation emitted from their phones.

We at Pong Research Corporation appreciate all consumer feedback. In a recent review, a user comment caught our attention. The commenter noted that after using his Pong case he claimed that “Instead of helping with signal, [Pong case] actually interfere[d] with signal.”
While some customers may benefit from Pong in different ways, we test our cases rigorously. Not only do we maintain state-of-the-art equipment but also test our products independently at certified laboratories like Cetecom. WIRED magazine and many others have tested Pong products independently at these labs, and have verified Pong’s claims in every respect.

There has been much debate over the right age a child should have a mobile phone. While there is no right or wrong answer, there are many things to consider. A recent TIME Magazine article discussed some of the factors that may influence when you get your son or daughter a cell phone. Obviously, the one that is most relevant to Pong is the threat of cell phone radiation.
