CNN: Apple iPhone Could Be Harmful To Your Health

CNN Apple eliminates headphone jack from iPhone 7: Harmful to your health?

CNN reports on health risks linked to the new iPhone 7 which school children will soon be bringing into our children's schools. Is the Bring Your Own Device Policy safe? 

...
"The biggest problem we have is that we know most environmental factors take several decades of exposure before we really see the consequences," Dr. Keith Black, chairman of the neurosurgery department at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, told CNN when the news broke.
"What microwave radiation does, in most simplistic terms, is similar to what happens to food in microwaves, essentially cooking the brain," Black said. "So in addition to leading to a development of cancer and tumors, there could be a whole host of other effects like cognitive memory function, since the memory temporal lobes are where we hold our cell phones."
....
"I think it's unfortunate, because Apple themselves acknowledges in their fine print -- often hidden -- that you need to keep cell phones ... away from the ear, and most people don't do that," says Dr. Anthony Miller, senior adviser to the Environmental Health Trust, a group that studies radiation and cell phone usage.
Most people talk on their cell phones while holding them directly in contact with their ear, and Apple does make warnings regarding radio frequency (RF) exposure available to consumers, but it's buried in the legal section of the company's website. You can also find it on your iOS by going to Settings -> General -> About -> Legal -> RF Exposure."
