Value of SAR reduction for Mudita Pure

I’m still struggling to understand why SAR is such a big deal to Mudita. I’ve asked many people I trust who are computer engineers, robotics specialists or are otherwise work with antenna and power electronics and they all say it’s a non issue. My understanding of physics is limited, but from what I understand the stuff we need to be concerned with is Ionizing radiation which exists beyond the visible light spectrum. The term microwaves seems ambiguous and describes a wide range of Mhz frequencies that encompasses so many technologies we use. The device we use to cook food uses a different frequency at much higher voltages; our cellphones regardless of build all output “microwave” radiation- just not the kind we use to cook our food. Perhaps instead of focusing so much on the SAR value of the phone we can just wear more sunscreen?

Unfortunate nobody has responded to this yet.
The fact is that the dangers of non-ionizing radiation are more evident by the day. It is no longer a “wackjob conspiracy” when scientists are considering moving cell phone radiation from a Class 2B carcinogen to a Class 1 carcinogen- aka as bad as tobacco and asbestos.
Your friends and colleagues are likely hindered by pop science’s rampant appealing to authority and gaslighting. Journalists and their masters, more often than scientists, decide conclusions to scientific debate. They make these supposed conclusions seem just technical enough for the average person to see as correct.
However, dig a little deeper, and it’s easy to figure out that “non-ionizing radiation is harmless” is objectively wrong.
For starters, here are two great guides:

@thegreatelectricadve Hi there. I’m so sorry about missing your post. I’m not sure what happened there. To answer your question about SAR & why is it a big deal, I will do my best to try and be as plain as possible, without all the scientific mumbo jumbo :smiley:
SAR is a measure of the rate of RF (radiofrequency) energy absorption by the body from the source being measured. While it may not affect all people the same way, there are individuals who do suffer from Electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS). (EHS) is a sensitivity to electromagnetic fields, to which negative symptoms are attributed. EHS. ( EHS ) is defined by unpleasant symptoms, like headaches and pain, triggered by exposure to electronic devices, and it is recognized by the WHO. Even though most individuals won’t experience any symptoms, there are acute sufferers who experience a combination of physical symptoms like nausea, headaches, palpitations, fatigue and rashes/other dermatological problems, often at the same time. (Less commonly, they may also complain of confusion, memory loss, panic attacks etc.)

Researchers and public health officials have documented these symptoms. According to experts, they’re definitely real, and patients aren’t making them up. EHS is a real syndrome, and the international health community has recognized it as such.
Here’s a way to look at it. I, personally, am allergic to horseradish. While I can eat regular radishes without any issues, horseradish can trigger an anaphylactic reaction in my body, if I consume it in high enough doses & I have an EPI pen for emergencies. If I consume it in small doses, my palms & throat start itching & I might break out in hives, but I won’t necessarily die.
So you see, a horseradish allergy is quite an obscure allergy, but it doesn’t mean it’s not real.

Thank you for your reply. I was under the impression that power density would be the most meaningful way of measuring emissions from a wireless device in terms of how much it will impact someone who feels the effects of EHS. Do agree with that statement, and if so, why does Mudita focus on SAR instead of power density measurements? If you do not agree with that statement, why? thank you.

@Felicia_Hobert I will ask our team from a more detailed explanation.

Thank you!! Looking forward to it.

@Felicia_Hobert We chose SAR because it is a parameter that we can compare with all products on the market. It also has a specific measurement method, that way we can reliably refer to it.
