The petition reads: "Based upon peer-reviewed, published research, we have serious concerns regarding the ubiquitous and increasing exposure to EMF generated by electric and wireless devices".
The petition further mentions such diagnoses as cancer, neurological disorders, and even DNA damage, citing research that links these to EMF exposure, and hence, the use of wireless headphones.
The petitioners stop short of naming Bluetooth or any particular products, the technology does use radiofrequency radiation, and AirPods in particular also use an electromagnetic field.
Wireless headphones establish a connection between content on your phone or streaming content and your ears using bluetooth, which is a radio frequency, in the same frequency range as microwaves, WiFi, cell phones and other electronic devices, according to the University of California. AirPods are particularly concerning due to their proximity to the brain, although there is no sufficient research on Bluetooth itself.
At high levels EMF can generate heat, cause burns and affect cell growth in humans. These forms of energy are powerful enough to shake up atoms that compose cells but not powerful enough to change their structures, which means their radiowaves are less unsafe than radiation from X-rays or UV, but are still risky.
The World Health Organisation developed guidelines that regulate the amount of EMF the devices are allowed to emit. And yet, the opposing view exists within the very same scientific community, represented in part by professors at the University of Pennsylvania, calling foul on the alleged effects of EMF radiation on the human body, on the basis of their point of origin.
