'Chip' Marketed as Protection from Cell Phone Radiation


February 12, 2013 9:49AM

EZ Technologies' warranty does not guarantee any reduction in SAR and is void if the Bodywell Chip is removed from the original device it is applied to. The warranty only covers "defects in materials or workmanship" found in the device. The Bodywell Chip and EZ Technologies Web sites both cite Swiss ownership, however no address or phone number is listed.

There may be no proof that non-ionizing radiation from cell phones is harmful. And the "Bodywell Chip" marketed by EZ Technologies for $29.99 that supposedly protects against the radiation has not been independently tested, nor any of the science behind it published in a peer-reviewed journal.

But tacking the chip, a postage-stamp size sticker, on a cell phone or other mobile device to counter the radiation is erring on the side of caution, the team behind the Bodywell Chip insisted at a Monday "Breakthrough Scientific Symposium" event in New York.

A panel convened by EZ Technologies, which makes the chip, warned that we may not know the full effects of cell phone waves, especially on more vulnerable children, for years. So why not take precautions?

"We don't want to look back years from now and say we should have done something," said EZ Technologies CEO Haim Einhorn, who prior to taking the helm of the company owned a real estate development firm in Florida. "We are providing peace of mind."

"Counteract Energy"

According to Bodywell, the Bodywell Chip contains an aluminum base coated with minerals and metals to counteract energy that might otherwise enter users' brains. Testing by Bodywell found that the specific absorption rate in "simulated brain fluids" containing salt, sugar and chemicals was lower when exposed to a device bearing the Bodywell Chip.

The Bodywell testing found a reduction in the specific absorption rate (SAR) from a Samsung Galaxy S III smartphone of 80 percent, and a reduction of 68.2 percent from Apple's iPhone 5 when used on the left side and 63.5 percent when used on the right side of the simulated brain fluids. Using a cellular-equipped iPad, the reduced SAR as measured by Bodywell testers was 34.8 percent.

The Federal Communications Commission has a maximum allowable SAR rate for phones approved in the U.S. -- 1.6 watts per kilogram -- and many phones come with a warning specifying how far from your face to hold them. But the FCC has not said that cell phones are dangerous.

"Any cell phone at or below these SAR levels (that is, any phone legally sold in the U.S.) is a "safe" phone, as measured by these standards," says the agency on its Web site.

Nachaat Mazeh of Beaumount Health System in Michigan, one of the Bodywell researchers, told us the chip does not absorb the radiation to keep it from humans but sends out its own frequency to counteract the possibly harmful waves. (continued...)
