Mobile phone radiation keeps our phones working but it also has some pretty serious side effects. More and more people are looking at the effects mobile phones are having on their health. Can phone radiation cause headaches? Is this something to be worried about?
Some people experience an extreme reaction to electromagnetic fields. This can include headaches, migraines, nausea, dizziness and palpitations. These people go to extreme lengths to avoid phone radiation, like insulating their homes or moving to the countryside.
Most people won’t have symptoms that severe. But if you have regular headaches you might want to think about whether your phone is at fault.
EMF – electromagnetic frequencies – like phone radiation are all around. Most household appliances emit EMF. Mobile phones are a bit different because we carry them with us nearly all day, put them to our heads and many people even sleep with them.
The students who did a famous experiment showing the effect of wifi signals on the growth of cress said that they could feel the difference when they slept with their phones. They had trouble sleeping and found it hard to concentrate in class the next day. Keeping a phone under your pillow or next to your bed means that you are within the field of radiation.
In Italy, a man was awarded a landmark judgement in a legal case, that said that his mobile phone was responsible for causing a tumour in his brain. Although it didn’t lead to cancer he did lose the hearing in one ear.
Given some of that evidence, “can phone radiation cause headaches?” is a good question to be asking.
But what can you do about it? You can block phone radiation from reaching your body and your brain, while still using your phone and other electrical devices.
WaveWall’s Universal anti-radiation phone case blocks 85% of mobile phone radiation from reaching your body. It doesn’t affect the use of your phone at all. There’s also an anti-radiation laptop case and iPad case. To give your head and brain extra protection, Airtubes are innovative headphones. Because the top part of the headphone is a hollow tube filled with air – not wires – they stop radiation from travelling to your head.
It’s an important question: does phone radiation kill sperm? With male fertility dropping across the globe it’s important to pay attention to anything that could be having an impact. And scientific studies and medical research is increasingly coming out that says mobile phone radiation is causing male infertility by killing and damaging sperm.
Even when the phone radiation doesn’t kill the sperm it can damage it so badly it can’t fulfil its purpose. Sperm need to be in tip top condition but phone radiation can affect them in various ways.
Sperm viability is, basically, whether sperm are alive are not. They have a tough job and many will die in the pursuit of fertilisation so there needs to be plenty at the start. For a good level of fertility 60% or more of sperm need to be viable.
Sperm motility describes how well the sperm can move. They need to be able to swim forwards strongly. Good levels of fertility depend on lots of this kind of strong swimming sperm. But some sperm can’t move at all, some just a little, and some can move but only in a zig zag or curving shape.
Sperm count is a familiar way of talking about fertility. Fertility is a number’s game so we need lots of sperm in that semen. It’s measured per millilitre and on average there is 20-40 million sperm per millilitre. Under 15 million and the sperm count is officially low.
Testosterone levels are important because when the male hormone is produced, sperm is also produced. So if low levels of testosterone are being made then low levels of sperm will be too.
But how does phone radiation kill sperm? We’ve seen how there are lots of factors that go into making healthy, strong sperm that can get the job done. Mobile phone radiation has been found to disrupt each of those factors.
In fact, some experts published their research and said mobile phone radiation was “cooking” sperm. Being battered by radiation that can damage and kill DNA and cells is seriously bad news for sperm.
Phone radiation is powerful stuff. It allows our little devices to send and receive messages from cell phone towers that can be many miles away. Maintaining this connection to the network requires a lot of effort from our phones. While it does so, what can phone radiation do to you?
Phones emit an electromagnetic field made of phone radiation. It extends about six inches around the phone. Like many other electromagnetic frequencies it can pass through the body. It’s possible that right now multiple electromagnetic frequencies are overlapping with your own body. Phone radiation, wifi signals, television signals and more.
Phone radiation is less like radio waves and more like an X-ray. They are all forms of electromagnetic frequency. But X-rays leave radiation behind when they pass through the body. That’s why their use is carefully restricted. So in the same way, the radiation from mobile phones can damage the body.
Cell phone radiation has been labelled as “possibly carcinogenic” by the World Health Organisation. Which means it could cause cancer in humans. There have been several cases of tumours or cancer thought to have been caused by phone radiation.
Other than cancer and tumours, what can phone radiation do to you? In many studies, phone radiation has been linked to the growing issue of male infertility. The radiation damages cells and DNA – and some very important cells and DNA sit within six inches of where many men keep their phone in their trouser pocket.
Because sperm are constantly developing they are very vulnerable. Phone radiation can cause weak, abnormal sperm that can’t get the job done. Which leads to infertility and trouble conceiving. Some scientists said exposure to mobile phone radiation is like “cooking” sperm.
What can you do about phone radiation? You can shield yourself from phone radiation using an anti-radiation phone case like WaveWall Universal. WaveWall have a range of phone radiation protection that blocks 85% of mobile phone radiation from reaching your body.
Do EMF protection devices work? It would be easy for us just to say “Yes.” Okay, you are thinking, but how do EMF protection devices work?
If you are wondering whether EMF protection devices work, or more to the point, how EMF protection devices work, let’s find out.
It’s all based on an old, well known scientific principle: the Faraday cage. It’s a metallic enclosure that prevents electricity or electrical impulses – like mobile phone radiation which uses an electromagnetic field – from travelling in or out.
The Faraday cage is named after the British scientist Michael Faraday, who discovered how it worked in the late 1800s. It’s a technology that is used a lot, but we don’t always realise it. How Stuff Works has an entertaining and informative article on the Faraday cage, tracing its history, the science and its uses.
Some cinemas deploy building wide technology that is in effect a Faraday cage. This is to stop you from receiving mobile phone signal. Or you might have to seal your phone in a Faraday sleeve – the same idea, but more an envelope than a cage – if you are attending a top secret event like attendees at the recent Star Wars premiere had to.
Faraday sleeves are getting popular to stop electronic car keys from being hacked. Or to cloak your phone’s GPS signal and obscure your whereabouts. Conspiracy theorists might make a DIY Faraday cage to protect their electrical devices in case of World War III or an EMP attack.
But WaveWall cases aren’t a full cage. They are open on one side, which means that your phone, iPad or laptop can still connect to the network or wifi and work normally. The side nearest your body is shielded and the radiation bounces right off. What it bounces off is the finely woven metallic mesh in the fabric – the Faraday cage.
So, do EMF protection devices work? Absolutely, and WaveWall uses patent pending EMF protection technology for our range of EMF protection devices. Independent testing has shown it blocks up to 87% of mobile phone radiation.
A leather phone case is an automatic default for a lot of people. They assume that genuine leather is the best choice for the looks, the prestige and durability. In the past, all WaveWall phone cases were made with leather and we were proud of the quality.
But leather comes with a terrible cost to animals and the environment. WaveWall is about healthy choices and protecting our bodies. What about protecting the environment? What about preventing animal cruelty?
So at the beginning of the year WaveWall set out a new ethical and environmental policy that meant no more leather or animal products in our range. We also committed to working towards carbon neutrality.
The WaveWall Universal is our first alternative to a leather phone case. Using high quality faux leather that is actually plastic. Which means it is still hard wearing, tough and good looking. With colourful stitching and a soft protective interior it’s all the quality you want from a leather phone case – without the leather and cruelty-free!
Fitting the vast majority of mobile phone makes and models you just have to choose the size of your phone screen. No shopping around for the right fit. Which means it will be great for your older phones, or the next big new release.
Great features like an RFID protected space for your cards means it’s the most functional WaveWall phone case yet.
Of course it also protects you from mobile radiation – leather not needed. This shielding is actually anti-radiation fabric in between the layers of the case. It deflects mobile radiation away from your body while still letting you use your phone as normal.
The new WaveWall Wallet is made of the same high quality faux leather and looks great. It has RFID blocking fabric too, but this time to stop fraudsters stealing information from your contactless bank cards.
Would you switch from leather to go cruelty-free and help save the environment?

2017 has been a big year for WaveWall – and it’s not over yet.
The WaveWall Universal, our most functional and versatile phone cover made big waves in 2017.
The WaveWall iPad and WaveWall Laptop saw our range extend. Any device that uses wireless technology produces radiation that is damaging to the body. Including iPads, tablets and laptops. Our fantastic cases and covers product your body as well as your tablet and laptop.
Electromagnetic frequencies from mobile phone radiation, wireless networks and wifi can enter the body and damage cells and DNA. This can cause cancer, tumours, and male infertility.
The WaveWall Laptop sits between your laptop and your lap and shields your most sensitive areas from the radiation and heat that can damage sperm. Then it transforms into a stylish and protective carry case to protect your laptop from bumps and scratches.
Most people like to get a case or cover for their iPad. They don’t fold away nicely like a laptop and the screen can easily get scratched. The WaveWall iPad cover doesn’t just protect your iPad though. It blocks that radiation from the wireless signals the iPad is always using. It’s super functional too, with a stand and space for a keyboard.
Then you can move a step closer to home with WaveWall’s SYB Shielded Boxers. Get anti-radiation protection where you need it most. The boxers are woven with silver thread for radio frequency protection. Because even if you protect your gadgets you are still passing through wireless networks and mobile radiation all day.
Last but not least, you can now get WaveWall protection for your wallet. The WaveWall Wallet uses the same clever WaveWall technology but this time it blocks scammers and identity thieves from using new contactless technology to steal your bank card information.
At the beginning of the year we committed to a new ethics policy. We wanted to remove leather and all animal byproducts from our range. Plus become CO2 neutral in our operations through offsetting and be mindful of working conditions. We are proud to support the Gardiner Foundation.
For convenience sake a lot of people just settle with a mobile phone case and don’t spend the time looking for their perfect case. There are actually a lot of great, multifunctional, useful phone cases out there. So it is worth having a good think about what you would like your ideal mobile phone case to do and searching it out.
First up, the case needs to protect the phone. That seems obvious. But a lot of cases don’t even do that. Many cases are just for the looks. Sensitive parts of the phone like the screen or camera are left exposed to scratches and cracks.
So you want a phone case with protection from from drops and scratches, and from everyday use. Including vulnerable areas like the screen and camera.
Then it needs to be easy to use. You could roll bubble wrap around your phone and it would be really safe. But completely unusable. You want to be able to snap a quick picture or make a simple phone call. You don’t want your phone to overheat, for the side buttons not to work, the charger not fit, or reception be affected.
The phone case should also protect you. Confused? Have a look at our blog and our information about mobile phone radiation. Mobile phone radiation can cause cancer, tumours and male infertility with new studies coming out all the time.
A good phone case can also make your life easier. Some include pockets for cash or cards. A phone case that doubles as a wallet sounds good.
But you need protection for your cards and personal information too. Identity thieves and scammers can scan your cards using the popular new contactless technology. RFID blocking phone cases keep your banking and personal information safe.
That seems like a lot for a phone case to do. The WaveWall Universal can do it all. It’s a stylish, multifunctional universal phone case.
Do you already have your ideal mobile phone case? Has this post given you any good ideas?

When you start looking at mobile radiation and all these issues it can be a lot to take in. So here’s WaveWall’s anti radiation phone case masterpost to quickly give you the lowdown on everything you need to know.
It might seem like a lot of jargon being thrown around but the concepts are actually easy to understand. Wireless technology including mobile phones use EMF, a form of radiation. That radiation can damage our bodies.
More and more research is being released that shows a link between mobile phones and rising levels of male infertility. We have a big list on Mobile phone radiation explained.
Other health problems caused by mobile phone radiation include cancers, tumours, and child development issues.
What are the mobile phone industry doing about this?
WaveWall’s range of anti radiation phone cases protect you from EMF and mobile radiation.

Last week we talked about finding the best iPhone 5 covers, but what about iPhone 5S phone cases? That’s the clever thing about the WaveWall Universal – it fits all the big makes and models. Just choose between the two screen sizes and you have a great fitting phone cover to rival any iPhone 5S phone cases. With lots of great extra features.
What kind of extra features?
First and foremost: protection from mobile phone radiation that can cause cancers, tumours and male infertility. Mobile phones are surrounded by radiation going about six inches around the phone. That radiation passes through the body and when it does it can kill and damage cells and DNA.
Mutations in cells is what causes tumours and cancers. Plus, mobile phone radiation can kill and damage sperm. And a lot of men spend a lot of their day with their phones within six inches of their privates. This leads to sperm being battered by mobile phone radiation. It’s an effect some scientists described as “cooking” sperm.
But a mobile phone case from WaveWall has innovative anti-radiation fabric that shields the body from mobile phone radiation. It deflects up to 86% of radiation and stops it from reaching the body.
Plus the WaveWall Universal is so easy to fit to your phone, including the iPhone 5S. It even has a section for your debit or credit cards, travel pass or whatever you need to take out with you regularly. It looks great with a stylish design and animal-friendly faux-leather.
The WaveWall Universal is all you need as an iPhone 5S phone case – protecting your phone and you.
Are you looking for iPhone 5S phone cases? Did you know you could find a case that protected your phone and you?
