The BlackBerry Curve will give you Hulk-like powers

Incredible Hulk

Boy, is this a chilling thought. Apparently, C|net has compiled a list of various BlackBerry models in terms of their radiation emission levels. Checking the list, I was surprised to find that my very own BlackBerry 8330 is the king of the hill at a 1.54 W/kg SAR rating. It should be noted that the cut-off point allowed by the FTC is 1.6. Eep. The lowest emitting BlackBerrys? The good old 7100r and the 8830.

Check out the list below and find out whether or not your BlackBerry will help you “go smash now!” or prevent you from having children. Thanks Phea for the tip (I think).

    BlackBerry causes heart electrical issues as well as head pain
    Within 2 months of getting the blackberry curve, I noticed that my ear(s) began to ache after using the phone. It didn’t matter how long I used the phone or what ear I used. It varied between a warm, deep thumping pain all around my ear mixed with sharp brief stabs that came from inside my ear, to an almost metallic taste coming from the fillings in my mouth and radiated from my entire jaw and through the inside of my head.

    This pain would continue for hours, even a day after using the phone. I got to the point that I would only use the phone in speaker exclusively. I tried using a bluetooth, but the reception was absolutely horrible and I had to simply rely on the speakerphone.

    I called AT&T to ask if I could return the phone, but they insisted it was not the phone. I went to the AT&T store and explained the issue, but they wouldn’t let me return the phone. I even gave the rep a demonstration with one of my hair clips. The magnet in the phone is so powerful, that I can pick up my hair clips with the phone. Although impressed by my magic trick, they wouldn’t let me swap out the phone.

    The blackberry disturbs the signals on the TV if it is too close, it disturbs other phones if it is too close, it disturbs the Flourescent light at my desk if it is too close, now… I believe it has started to have an effect on the electrical signals going from my brain to my heart.

    I sleep with the phone plugged in and sitting on my night stand. I use my phone more than ever because I am working long distance from my husband and daughter. In the past few months I have begun to experience electrical problems with my heart and am seeing an electrocardiologist.

    Physically, there are no problems with my heart. I am young, I am physically fit, I am active, I eat well. There is no cholesterol, no high blood pressure, No arteriosclerosis, no blockages… nothing.

    What there is a problem with suddenly however is in the electrical signals going from my brain through the Vagus nerves to my heart and how/when those signals are telling my heart when to beat, how fast or slow to beat and how hard to beat. The doctors are absolutely stumped and although they acknowledge there is definately a problem, a serious problem that they can see and measure and record… they don’t have an answer for what is interfering with the electrical information going from my brain to my heart.

    I’m thinking I might know now….. I am going to drop kick this piece of crap into the Potomac River and get a new phone. Maybe I may even have the resources necessary for a lawsuit against Blackberry for selling a product that is dangerous to people’s lives and health.
