Apple bans cellphone radiation detection app from 'App Store'

(NaturalNews) An Israeli startup company known as Tawkon has developed a mobile application that provides visual readouts on the amount of radiation being emitted from mobile phones at any given time. But according to numerous reports, tech-giant Apple continues to refuse the addition of the "app" to its App Store, which means users must "jailbreak" their iPhones in order to download and use it.

Concerns about cellphone radiation and its dangers to human health are growing, as reports continue to emerge showing that repeated and prolonged exposure can cause chronic headaches and migraines, behavioral and developmental problems, and even cancer (http://www.naturalnews.com/cell_phone.html). But it is precisely because of these dangers that companies like Apple appear to be trying to hide the truth about mobile phone dangers.

According to a Tech Crunch report from August 23, 2011, Apple's former CEO Steve Jobs, who not even two months later died of cancer (http://www.naturalnews.com/033793_Steve_Jobs_chemotherapy.html), had once again denied requests to include Tawkon's radiation detection app in his company's App Store (http://techcrunch.com). Jobs' response to Tawkon's request consisted solely of the the following:

"No Interest.

Sent from my iPhone"

The only way for iPhone users to get the app, in other words, is to have their iPhones "jailbroken," a process in which Apple's proprietary operating system software is modified to allow iPhone users more freedom in modifying their own devices. Apart from these alterations, which can potentially void an iPhone's warranty, iPhone users are restricted by Apple from knowing the truth about how much radiation their phones are emitting.

Electro-sensitivity, a growing public health epidemic

Whether to shelter its own profits or to deliberately keep its users in the dark about the radiation dangers of mobile phones, Apple's despotic decision to prevent its users from accessing pertinent information about their own phones is a public health nuisance. Electromagnetic radiation (EMR) from mobile phones and other devices is causing widespread health problems, many of which go undiagnosed.

The growing prevalence of electro-sensitivity (ES), a condition in which EMR-producing devices, including mobile phones, cause chronic health problems to develop, is becoming pandemic. Headaches, speech problems, dizziness, chest palpitations, tinnitus, memory loss, nausea, joint pain, back pressure, and many other symptoms are all associated with perpetual exposure to EMRs, particularly from mobile phones.

Fortunately, mobile phone users can still measure EMRs without Tawkon's app using electromagnetic frequency (EMF) detectors (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EMF_meter). These devices can be placed near mobile phones, microwaves, compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs, and other radiation-emitting devices to detect the amount of EMRs being emitted.

And as far as mobile phones are concerned, CNET has also put together a helpful report that measures the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR), also known as the amount of radio frequency (RF) energy absorbed by the body, of various mobile phone handsets while they are in use.
