Story at-a-glance -

  • Plans to install wireless chargers in public areas and on commonly used home furniture increase your risk of suffering health effects associated with mitochondrial dysfunction triggered by EMF exposure
  • Since nearly 77 percent of U.S. adults own a smartphone, up from 36 percent in 2011, phone manufacturers continue to search for ways to increase connectivity and phone use, including advances in wireless charging

Interestingly, while smartphone ownership is more common among youth and those who are more affluent, rates are rising rapidly among older and lower-income Americans as well.
