What is the potential effect of cell phone and bluetooth radiation on the inner ear?
Due to the huge number of mobile devices [cell] Phone users nowadays, even minor adverse health effects can You have The main effects.” “The main concern about cell phones is that they are usually close to the head, The resulting In great exposure to the brain and other tissues on the side of the head where the phone is usually placed.” Other tissues? Yes, such as your inner ear, which is the most frequent and direct organ open For cell phone radiation. What about the potential harmful effects on hearing? In fact, the ear canal may provide a “natural route through which emitted radiofrequency radiation can reach the peripheral and central nervous system,” to go deeper into your skull.
The first natural question to ask might be: Do long-term mobile phone users suffer from hearing loss? Apparently, they do. Mobile phone users were have found To have detectable hearing loss, although not enough to be noticeable, indicating that long-term cell phone use may damage the inner ear. The damage was bilateral, or detectable in both ears, which may be more consistent with the effect of radiation than just a constant loud noise effect in one ear.
Now, this was comparing users with full non-users. As you can see at 1:20 in my video Effect of cell phones and bluetooth on nerve functionIf you are compare Heavy cell phone users To light users, there appears to be a dose response: the longer the daily cell phone use (up to four or five hours in this study), the greater the hearing impairment. Researchers have found Heavy-use participants had a higher sound threshold before they could hear the hearing test tone and concluded that this “clearly revealed the dangerous effects of mobile phone use on auditory function”. They continued, “Based on the study, it is recommended to use a mobile phone [cell] Phones very wisely, “as there is no He appears To be any difference between non-users and those who used it 10 to 20 minutes a day. However, two hours a day appears to be associated with a certain amount of hearing loss, which is blamed on “long-term exposure to the electromagnetic field (EM) generated by mobile phones”. But to make a claim like that, you can’t just use observational studies like this one. You need to test it.
As you can see at 2:13 in my country videoto determine whether cell phone signals can affect the auditory nerve at all, for five minutes, the researchers directly open The cell phone nerve hovering over him – in the middle of brain surgery – witnessed the dramatic deterioratetion of nerve impulses. In fact, it was So much so that they decided to stop the experiment early “to avoid possible permanent damage to the auditory structures.” This is clearly a very abnormal situation and is “completely far from reproducing real life electromagnetic fields” that you would be exposed to with skin, bone, blood, brain and the like. However, it does show that cell phone emissions are strong enough to at least affect nerve function.
How about an interventional study on the effects of mobile phones on hearing that doesn’t involve brain surgery and where your skull actually is on me? The first study ever published on this have found Ten minutes of cell phone exposure had no effect. So far, so good. How about more than ten minutes? Researchers have found No effect in 15, 20 or even 30 minutes, but what after an hour? It immediately sounded “sixty minutes of close exposure to electromagnetic fields emitted by a mobile phone” Effect Hearing threshold levels at specific frequencies. Again, the effect wasn’t to the point where you’d notice a difference in your hearing, but it was enough to pick you up on these hearing tests.
What if you wear a bluetooth headset? Is bluetooth radiation effect he heard? Apparently, it has no effect… on your pet’s rat… but what about your other family members? Thirty adult volunteers were open To the Bluetooth headset device (1) at the “standby” setting for 6 hours and (2) at full power for 10 minutes. Researchers discoverer There are no changes in hearing. Could it be that bluetooth emissions don’t have the ability to affect nerves? Too bad the brain surgery research group didn’t try Wave About some bluetooth headphones, too.
Oh, but they did! Researchers decided after they showed that a cell phone’s electromagnetic fields can degrade nerve impulses repeat Experiment to see if the same thing happened with the bluetooth fields. Bluetooth operates at a higher frequency than mobile phones, so with the same power, Bluetooth may be more dangerous, but it also works about a thousand times less powerfully. No wonder, then, that the Bluetooth device had no effect on the auditory nerve, even when it was completely exposed. Taken together, these findings suggest that an alternative provided by a Bluetooth headset along with a cell phone kept in a pocket or on a table is generally much safer in terms of the effects of electromagnetic fields on the nervous system, and thus represents a viable solution for greater security.

This is part of my extended series on cell phone radiation. You might be wondering why I’m interested in this topic because it has nothing to do with food. Well, like nutrition, it has billion-dollar industries competing to discredit science, so I wanted to help people sort fact from fiction. She produced a series on mammograms for the same reason. paying off:
- Because cell phones are usually carried close to the head, the brain and other tissues, such as the inner ear, may be directly and significantly exposed to radiation. In addition, mobile phone users have been found to have detectable hearing loss, although not enough to be noticeable except during a hearing test.
- When comparing heavy use of a light cell phone, there appears to be a dose response: the longer the daily use, the greater the hearing impairment. There does not appear to be any difference between non-users and light users (10 to 20 minutes a day), but cell phone use for two hours a day appears to be associated with hearing loss, which is blamed on “long-term exposure to electromagnetic field generated by cell phones”.
- When the researchers exposed the auditory nerve directly to a cell phone in the middle of brain surgery, they saw such a dramatic deterioration in the nerve impulses and stopped the experiment early “to avoid potentially permanent damage to the auditory structures.” This showed that cell phone emissions are strong enough to at least affect nerve function.
- An interventional study that did not include brain surgery found that “close exposure to electromagnetic fields emitted by a mobile phone” for an hour (but not less) seemed to immediately affect hearing threshold levels at specific frequencies. Again, the effect wasn’t as much as you’d notice, but it was enough to be picked up during a hearing test.
- However, Bluetooth radiation does not appear to affect hearing. When 30 adults were exposed to a Bluetooth headset on “standby” for six hours or at full power for ten minutes, the researchers were unable to detect any changes in hearing.
- Bluetooth operates at a higher frequency than cell phones, and with the same power, it may be more dangerous, but it works about a thousand times less power.
- The researchers found that Bluetooth had no effect on the auditory nerve, even when fully exposed, and concluded that “a Bluetooth headset with a cell phone kept in a pocket or on a table is generally safer in terms of EMF effects on the nervous system. It thus represents a viable solution. Application for added security [cell phone] proces.”
