250 scientists warn trendy wireless earphones may pose higher risks to cancer

Many mobile phone users have abandoned their old fashioned earpiece to embrace the new wireless air pods that offer more functionality and style.

For some, it goes beyond having a device that simplifies phone use actions like making and receiving calls or simply listening to music, it is the very idea of being a part of what is considered as the newest trend in mobile technology that gives gratification.

The bubble may be bursting for AirPods users, however, as a number of scientists have come out to say the device is harmful and may have the potential of causing cancer.

DailyMail reports that Apple’s wireless Airpods may pose cancer risks to wearers according to a United Nations and World Health Organization petition.

The report also revealed that about 250 scientists signed the petition, which warns against numerous devices that emit radio frequency radiation, which is used in Wi-Fi, cellular data and Bluetooth.

Airpods in particular have been singled out because of how they sit deeply enough the ear canal to expose some fragile parts of the ear to dangerous radiation.
