The facts

It's a fact that mobile and smart phones are an integral part of our modern daily lives with consumers spending an increasing amount of time actively using them.

The science

Mobile/Smart phones work by transmitting radio waves. These radio waves are electromagnetic fields and are absorbed by the body. The specific absorption rate (SAR) is a measure of the rate at which the body absorbs this electromagnetic energy.

The Health debate

There are numerous studies into the effects of mobile usage on the human body. Both the FCC and European Union have set radio frequency safety limits for Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) for mobile/smart phone users.

In some countries and regions mobile phone manufacturers are obliged to offer advice on how to use the handset, such as holding the phone a certain distance away from the users body and to limit the amount of time spent talking.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has classified mobile/smart phone radiation as possibly carcinogenic to humans (Group 2B) and states further studies are needed.


At NATIVE UNION we design products that improve the experience of communication. As well as producing beautifully designed products our Bluetooth handsets when have been independently tested and are proven to reduce users to exposure to radiation by 96% and our wired handsets by an astonishing 99%.
