New invention to absorb mobile radiation

Scientists in Hong Kong have developed a device that will absorb up to 70 per cent of radiation emitted from mobile phones in a bid to protect mobile users. Despite the fact that no conclusive evidence has been found to link mobile phones with cancer, public concern has prompted researchers at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology to create a device that will absorb between 50 to 70 per cent of mobile radiation. The new device is supposedly cheap to make but the inventors are yet to enter a deal with handset manufacturers to include them in future phones.
