In modern mobile phones, a radiation shield is an accessory that decreases the amount of radio frequency energy being absorbed by a mobile phone user.
In James Bond’s 1960s, Radiation Shields provided radiological protection from ionizing radiation, including particle and electromagnetic radiation.
The effects of mobile or cell phone usage has been open to debate for some time. Studies have revealed that mobile phones use electromagnetic radiation in their microwave range. Other digital wireless systems produce the same radiation.
Studies by The International Agency for Research on Cancer classified mobile phone radiation as 'Possibly carcinogenic' in a 2011 report. This means there is a risk from long term usage. Additional research is taking place.
