A new study by the RF Exposure Lab concludes that the iPhone 11 Pro is far from beneficial to our health. According to its tests, this smartphone emits 3.8 watts of radio frequency radiation, more than double what is considered legal.
Since 2011, the World Health Organization has considered radiofrequency radiation as a carcinogenic enhancer. The same entity has already developed several studies that prove it and that show that this type of radiation can still cause headaches, learning and memory deficits, hearing problems and more.
Against this backdrop, the American entity FCC established a legal limit of 1.6 watts of radiation. This should be the maximum allowed for a smartphone to receive due legal approval.

Poor approval process enhances these discrepancies
As a radiation limit of 1.6 watts is legally established, it is legitimate to ask yourself how it is possible that the iPhone 11 Pro has been approved. The truth is that it is not the FCC that carries out the final tests on the levels of radiofrequency radiation emitted.
These assessments are made by independent laboratories. If these laboratories give a favorable opinion, the FCC will only enact the equipment in question, without ever checking the veracity of the levels presented.
Several experts believe that the limits imposed by the FCC may be exceeded. The 1.6 watts of radio frequency radiation was established more than 20 years ago.
The age of the legislation in question can be a problem, but the way it is applied is even more worrying. Studies like what the RF Exposure Lab presents us demonstrate that the final evaluation of the independent laboratories is not as honest as it should be. After all, we are talking about the health of human beings.
How to try to minimize the effects caused by radio frequency radiation
The most effective method to stay away from this type of radiation would be to stop using the smartphone completely. As we well know, this will not happen and there are some practices that will help to mitigate its harm.
One of the most recommended is to use handsfree kits or Bluetooth earphones for making calls. This way, you would have the smartphone out of your head.
Another simple practice is not to carry your smartphone in your pants or shirt pocket. When the network signal is low, whenever possible wait for an area with greater reception so that the smartphone does not need as much energy.
