Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge SAR Radiation Rating is Dangerously Close to the Legal Limit
It’s official. The Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge SAR rating for radiation is dangerously close to the legal limit of 1.6W/kg set by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in the United States.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge SAR rating for cellular transmission is 0.62 watts per kilogram (w/kg) at the head, and 1.06 w/kg when worn on the body. The wireless router SAR is 0.55 w/kg at the head. The SAR for simultaneous transmission (cellular plus Wi-Fi) is 1.40 w/kg at the head, 1.50 w/kg when worn on the body, and 1.59 w/kg when used as a hotspot.
For the Galaxy S7 Edge, the SAR for cellular transmission is 0.64 watts per kilogram (w/kg) at the head, and 1.07 w/kg when worn on the body. The wireless router SAR is 0.85 w/kg at the head. The SAR for simultaneous transmission (cellular plus Wi-Fi) is 1.24 w/kg at the head, 1.41 w/kg when worn on the body, and 1.59 w/kg when used as a hotspot.

USA Legal Limit is 1.6 W/kg – FCC SAR testing is measured in watts per kilogram (or W/kg) averaged over ONE gram of simulated biological tissue. It is a well known FACT SAR testing was not designed for protecting women or children from harmful radiation exposure, and SAR Test do not take into consideration health effects below thermal levels

SAR is an abbreviation for Specific Absorption Rate, and it represents the maximum value of a measurement taken multiple times in lab conditions. Specifically, SAR is a measure of the strength of the electric and magnetic fields and power density of transmitters operating at 300KHz to 100GHz frequencies. It is represented in watts per kilogram (W/kg). Learn more about the importance of SAR testing here.
Of course, you’re here because you’re informed about the dangers of cell phones and the potential cancer causing levels of radiation. One of the most prevalent cancers emitted by cell phones is brain cancer. This and other cell phone causing cancers can be prevented by using an RF Safe flip Cover Case in conjunction with an RF Safe AirTube Headset which can be further protected by an RF Safe Ferrite Bead. The good news is that you can protect yourself from cancer causing radiation emitted by cell phones with these and other devices.
