    Ionizing Radiation is the bad stuff and it causes atoms particles to be disrupted. Radioactive decay, nuclear reactions, from the Sun (ever get a sunburn?).

    Electromagnetic Radiation however is harmless. Radio Waves, Cell phones, Visible light, infrared light.

    You must also not fly commercially either of course. Since you're that high in the altitude you actually intake 10x the normal amount of radiation during the flight than if you were on the ground. And forget about going to the beach or being outside in the sun! You will take about 3x the radiation then if you were to stay indoors wearing your tin foil hat. Worrying about your blu-tooth, cell phone, and wifi really is beyond obsessive and pointless.
    They should probably avoid concrete, smoking and bananas as well. Oh and those orange glazed plates, since they often use uranium for orange coloring in stoneware. Radiation, and I mean ionizing radiation, is everywhere. You'd probably need to build a ball out of lead and float it to the middle of the ocean to have any shot at avoiding radiation. There's some evidence that small doses of ionizing radiation are good for you, generally speaking living somewhere with high background radiation means living somewhere with less incidences of cancer for example.

    Also don't live in higher altitudes altogether if you are that concerned. But as others have pointed out there is no known risks and no known method that has ever been observed for devices of these calibre to cause any concern. Yes even standing right next to a TV transmission tower has no known risks to date.

    Bluetooth is a radio frequency (RF) which operates on a 2.4GHz band. It is a type of electromagnetic radiation and is mostly harmless, unlike fumes from radioactive substances. I see cell phone addicts having a BT headset on their head almost all day long. PS3 uses bluetooth version 2.1 EDR and you cannot switch off the bluetooth when the console is in operation. I dont think that will change with the ps4.
    p.s.- how many here know that bluetooth was the name of a person and that the tech was named after him?

    I don't think that's accurate.
    "We are making a new device ‘hand free’ which is basically an ear phone device connected to a cell phone but the sound signal is not sent thru a wire (which may transmit radiation straight to your brain)"

    I'd be more concerned about being cooped up in a basement and playing games all day, breathing in radioactive radon-gas. Radon emits alpha radiation therefore you wouldn't want to breath it in.

    The reason you can't turn blutooth off is because the controller uses it to communicate with games and the ps3.

    If anyone is worried about Bluetooth radiation then I have the perfect game system for them, and it is 100% radiation free!

    As questionable as they are, I do believe big brother would have stepped in and banned the use of blue-tooth if it was that much of a hazard

    You give big brother too much credit. They are doing everything they can to block us from even knowing if we are eating GMO foods, that many tests confirm are a huge cancer causer. Not that blue-tooth is that much of a hazard, but I wouldn't leave it to big bro to decide for me if it were safe enough for use.

    this!!!

    if it weren't for people that started to realize this, we wouldn't even have "all natural" "no color" no preservatives" "no hormones" etc. foods. It's sad that they have to put that down as a feature...Oh, yea, this doesn't have cancer! buy it now!

    I wish more members around here had that attitude. Can't ask a question around here anymore without someone trying to belittle you.

    Not trying to sound like a jerk but why are you so concerned about radiation? If it's illness related, there's no real danger for you in there. Unless you have an OCD, then I understand why would you be so concerned about it, maybe you're to careful when it comes to your and your family's health so do not take my post as offensive, I'm just curious.

    Probably easiest to just direct you to something like http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ionizing_radiation for a general background in ionizing radiation. But this is more fun, it's a list of a variety of commonly occurring radioactive sources: http://www.physics.isu.edu/radinf/natural.htm.

    Belive me, all I expect from them is a smug statement discounting any relevance, which wouod only lead to more of a public awareness uproar. All leading to nothing for the most part, but when was the last time that happened lol

    Standing near one over a peroid of time, say a few months to a few years will make your hair fall out much in the same way x-rays will, notice around TV towers in fields nothing grows and the stuff that does looks sick... EMR will kill over time in very high doses.

    I'm pretty sure standing right in front of a transmission dish will would melt your face off electromagnet radiation the power of a few hundred microwave ovens will kill you, they incinerate birds and possums everyday so just imagine.


    TO THE OP
    Remember you're not on the earth for long, the world is already damaged from everyone who was here previously and living in the present it's not going to get any better in a health sense, we will consume more resources each and everyday and the world one day won't be able to cope on a global scale so enjoy the years you have left even if you get exposed to your blutooth radiation if you enjoy playing your PS games than good for you! you're not hurting anyone directly so don't worry about it it won't be the same as standing in front of a cell dish.

    If it makes you feel any better the plastic your playstation was made from was probably a T-Rex a million years ago isn't it strange that a dinosaur can be turned into a solid useful entertainment object weird, and the tallow that's in washing powder that we wash our clothes in, that's much weirder to me than EMR
