Skin Cancer, Cell phones and Airpods

A few years ago I was diagnosed with skin cancer. The tumor on my face was the largest one the dermatologist had ever seen in his 20 years of practice. This was pretty shocking for both the Doc and I considering my age and health. Thankfully it was basal-cell carcinoma and we were able to treat it with topical agents instead of cutting a hole out of my face. I did have zombie face for about 6 months but it’s since healed up great.
Why am I telling ya’ll this? Well… I was a camp director for about 4.5 years and got a lot of sun (obvious correlation). I was also on the phone l lot (possible correlation?). I had a crappy old Samsung phone that was so quite I had to hold it really tight up against my ear to hear anything. I also used it predominantly on my left so my right hand was free to do stuff. Today I rummaged through an old desk to see if I could find that same phone as I’ve been reading a bit about the possible correlation between skin cancer and cell-phone use. I found it, held it up to my face and sure enough it was almost exactly the same size and location as the tumor. This could of course be a coincidence and the causation of the tumor was likely a combination of things, sun exposure, nutrition...ect. But is it possible the close proximity of cell phone use had a part in it? Not probable...but possible? It seems like their are more stories like this popping up. For example, some women who routinely store there phone in there bra have been getting breast cancer in the same area they had been keeping there phone.
Now to AirPods…They are amazing right?
Unfortunately here’s what I found:
AirPods produce an average EMF (ElectroMagnetic Field) significantly higher then other bluetooth/wired headphones and are constantly transmitting at these levels, even when they are not in use.
I’m no expert but it may not be the best idea to have these things hanging out in our ears all day.
For now I’m going to stick with wired headphones, use my speaker phone when I can, and my older bluetooth headset when I need it. Also going to checkout airtubes; headphones that send sound through tubes instead of wires. And...of course wear sun screen.
Anyways, thought this may be some helpful info to pass on.
