Do Bluetooth Earpieces Cause Cancer?

The old adage that 'mobile phone emissions can cause cancer' is a commonly held belief that doesn't actually have a huge amount of evidence behind it. Nevertheless, a lot of people genuinely believe that they can/will develop cancer after extensive use of a mobile phone.

Amazingly, this does little or nothing to deter these very same people from using their phones all the time!

To go to the root causes of this belief, we must first talk about the pioneering work of American ophthalmologist (that's an eye specialist) Dr. Milton Zaret. Milton was a giant in his field (and was even unintentionally name checked in a 2013 issue of 'Batman' - no joke). Among Dr. Zaret's most notable accomplishments was his research into the damaging effects that microwave emissions have on the Human eye.

There is a obvious, present and growing danger to the whole population of the UK from contact to the whole non-ionizing segment of the electromagnetic spectrum. The danger can't be overstated because most non-ionizing emission injuries happen clandestinely, usually do not become obvious until after many dormant years, and when they do, the effects are rarely documented.

It seems that there was a lot of political pressure on other researchers to discredit Dr. Zaret and his findings, which resulted in some fairly bad science, but equally in the general notion that Zaret was mistaken. However, his work was never conclusively proved, nor reliably debunked, leaving the case open to interpretation.

Although the emissions that bothered Dr. Zaret (anything from microwave ovens to radar technology) are not exactly the same as mobile phone emissions, the fundamental argument is similar. To date, nobody has been able to prove, or disprove, that mobile phones can cause cancer.

Since the development of mobile phone equipment, studies have been conducted to see if they cause health risks. The fear is rational, given that mobile phones are low-powered microwave emitters, and some microwaves have been revealed to cause health risks. Consumers and Experts agonize that keeping a microwave emitting gadget near your head and/or brain could put you in danger for brain cancer or other harm. The fear is now and again greater in regard to Bluetooth earpieces, as the gadget is located inside your ear and thus even nearer to your brain.

So, the old argument has now been transferred to Bluetooth Headsets (you are by no means the first person to ask this question). The key point being that the earpiece itself is actually much closer to your brain than a mobile phone. However, naysayers simply consider the level of microwave emission produced by the earpiece to be so low as to render the effects negligible.

Essentially, because the widespread use of mobile phones is a relatively recent phenomenon (although it must be said that the first mobile call was actually placed 41 years ago by Marty Cooper), it is simply too early to tell, one way or the other.

Because Bluetooth earpieces are such a new facet, it is not possible to get statistics about continuing effects of constant contact. Some propose that inside 20 years, advanced studies will be presented, as the first generation to grow up using mobile phones and earpieces will in fact be guinea pigs for lasting effects. If you are really worried about the microwave emission from your mobile phone, don't use Bluetooth earpieces and simply use the speaker-phone alternative that is standard on most Mobile phones. even though exact study has not provided comprehensible solutions as to whether Bluetooth earpieces can result in cancer, this may be an area where you feel it is better to be safe than sorry.

In conclusion, it does seem unlikely thatyour mobile phone can give you cancer. It seems logical enough to assume that we'd all be feeling the effects by now, after nearly two decades of mobile phone use (the second of which actually involved the majority of the population). However, nobody really knows for sure... Dr. Zaret may yet be proven right as the prophet of doom (but, of course, we have to hope not).

What types of things do agents take along with them once they're on an job outside the office?

You would consider that the U . s . FBI (being the United states FBI and everything) would have access to an earpiece a little cooler that just the conventional ‘curly cable’ job, wouldn't you?

If pushed, We have to state that I usually imagine some old fella, like Desmond Llewelyn in the Bond movies, (and even a younger model like Ben Whishaw from ‘Skyfall’) making many of the devices himself after which explaining them to the agents before they go out and protector the President’s life.

This is just not the case. They use the versions that they use because they work and they work well. Basically, wired models are still more dependable than their wireless counterparts. With wireless, you tend to have more interference, as well as having to deal with more restricted bandwidth. Essentially, you need reliable tech if you’re within the field. Lives are at stake in some cases.



This straightforward, trusted earpiece might be relied upon to accomplish the job, every time.

Another advantage thatwired earpieces have over wireless ones (on this example, at least) is the proven fact that a wired set needn’t carry an extra battery. Wireless earpieces would need charging and, as a consequence, would possess a somewhat restricted operational capacity. It just causes a whole lot more headaches for people who, let us face it, previously have a fair bit on their plates to start with.

Reported by ‘AskJeeves.com

“The ear piece and mic that the secret service uses is called a Throat Mic. The Throat Mic has clarity that is unsurpassed, great sound quality, and allows for discreet interaction. It also has an acoustic air tube that makes it comfortable when worn for long periods of time”.

The ‘curly earpiece’ technology is generally rather popular and is utilized by a number of individuals and businesses beyond the FBI. You are able to even buy a wireless version, but don’t expect the secret service to be involved!

I could argue another point, but that is merely a pet theory with little or no research to back it up. Psychologically speaking, when you see a secret service agent, you recognize them as such without seeing them in any kind of uniform (beyond a dinner suit, shades and an earpiece), the headset, then, is a subtle reminder to you, the civilian, that not merely is this not a regular person inside a suit, but additionally that the area where you now end up is being strictly monitored.

With one word to his/her earpiece, the agent in question can probably call down all the other agents within the direct area, also as police, fire brigade and anybody else he/she believes is necessary. That subtle reminder is probably a very potent crime deterrent. No guns need to be displayed, no helmets or flak jackets worn and yet y’know that this individual has eyes all over the place and could, probably, really ruin your month. As I said, it is just a assumption, but I think it makes sense.
