As public awareness over cell phone radiation has grown, products such as anti-radiation stickers have increased in popularity. It’s understandable to want to protect yourself, and if these products work as advertised, they could be a powerful ally against EMF radiation. Simply stick one on the back of your cell phone case and enjoy the benefits of decreased exposure.
The question is, do these products work as advertised? Just how effective are anti-radiation stickers? Not to mention, there are quite a few options out there. Which ones are worth trying?
If you’ve done a search on Amazon for anti-radiation stickers, then you know the sheer number of manufacturers out there — for reference, at the time of this writing, the search yielded 701 results. That’s a lot to have to sift through, and that’s why we’ve created this guide. First, we’ll go into exactly what anti-radiation stickers claim to do. Then, we’ll talk a little about whether or not they work, the science behind them, and anecdotal evidence. Finally, we’ll dive into some of the more popular products on the market.
What does an anti-radiation sticker do?
Anti-radiation stickers claim to work in a variety of ways, depending on the actual sticker. Some are made of certain metals that are said to repel electromagnetic frequencies. Others claim to change the actual physical properties of the EMF radiation, turning it into something that is no longer harmful to the body. One thing is for sure across all models, and that is that they are next to impossible to actually test.
Do anti-radiation stickers work?
Most EMF protection products can be easily tested using an EMF meter. This is a recommended step when it comes to implementing EMF protection because it allows you to verify if the measures you’re taking are actually creating a difference. Anti-radiation stickers don’t necessarily decrease the amount of radiation present, and therefore they really can’t be tested by a standard EMF meter.
Individuals who are highly sensitive to EMF radiation may be able to tell a difference when they are using a sticker versus when they are not. They may experience relief from their EMF-related symptoms — something that could be attributed to either the anti-radiation sticker or the placebo effect.
To determine if these stickers work, we’ll look at both scientific studies and anecdotal evidence.
Some anti-radiation sticker manufacturers have funded their own studies into the effectiveness of their products. We’ll talk more about those later when we go into product reviews. In this section, however, we’re talking about independent research.
There has been very little independent research done on the efficacy of anti-radiation stickers. One study, funded partially by Motorola, looked at nine different anti-radiation stickers. Researchers concluded that the presence of a sticker did not affect the user. In other words, the stickers did nothing to reduce the amount of radiation the user was exposed to.
The Federal Trade Commission cautioned in 2011 that products such as anti-radiation stickers may cause a cell phone to work harder to produce a signal. This may actually backfire and cause the phone to generate even more radiation. For now, there is no hard evidence that using a cell phone sticker could harm or protect the user. The FTC’s statement, however, indicates that users should be mindful of where they place the sticker.
We’ve determined there is little to no scientific evidence to go on when it comes to anti-radiation stickers. What about anecdotal evidence? In other words, what kinds of experiences have people had with these stickers?
Unfortunately again, there is very little information out there. Reading through product reviews, some users do experience reductions in headaches and other EMF-related symptoms when using an anti-radiation sticker. This still doesn’t tell us if the stickers work, however, because the change in symptoms could be due to the placebo effect. And other users experience no changes at all — are they using the sticker incorrectly, or does the sticker just not work?
The bottom line
Ultimately, there is no way to tell for certain if anti-radiation stickers are effective or not, because they can’t be tested with a standard meter. If you opt to try an anti-radiation sticker, go into it knowing that you may or may not experience any differences in your symptoms. That being said, for a highly sensitive individual who suffers from EMF-related symptoms, it could be worth a shot.
Anti-radiation sticker reviews
If you’ve decided to give anti-radiation stickers a try, the next step is to decide which product to use. There are plenty to choose from, but that’s not necessarily a good thing. The fact is, many manufacturers of anti-radiation stickers make claims about their products that cannot be tested or verified. When shopping for anti-radiation stickers, be wary of any product that sounds too good to be true. Ideally, a product should be backed by research from the manufacturer or, at the very least, verified reviews.
Now, let’s take a look at some of the most popular anti-radiation stickers on the market.
If the website is to be believed, French company Fazup has an impressive product on their hands. This anti-radiation sticker is said to reduce radiation exposure by up to 99%, and Fazup claims it is used by multiple corporations including Dell, Nestle, and Emirates Airlines to keep their employees safe. Users reportedly experienced a decrease in headaches, heating of the ear, tinnitus, sleep disorders, and tingling of the hands when using the sticker.
Fazup’s anti-radiation sticker houses a tiny passive antenna. This antenna helps redirect EMF radiation away from the user while the phone is held up to the head. According to Fazup, the positioning of the sticker on the phone varies by make and model, and it’s critical to get this positioning correct for best results. Incorrect positioning of the sticker could direct the radiation towards the user instead of away from them. For that reason, Fazup provides positioning cases that correspond to your model of phone, in order to help with placement.
In addition to the patch and positioning case, each Fazup patch box includes a screen wipe and a small silicone utensil that can be used to adjust the placement of the patch. At the time of this writing, the patch retailed for a little under $40.
Fazup does make some impressive claims with their product, and the reviews posted on the website and on Amazon are overall positive. As Fazup is a relative newcomer to the market, however, and because many of their claims are not verifiable, this many be a product to hold off on purchasing, at least until there’s more information out there.
Aulterra’s Neutralizer is another anti-radiation sticker. Aulterra, however, is not a newcomer to the market at all. According to the company’s website, Aulterra has been around since 1997, long before we were glued to our cell phones. That’s the first thing Aulterra’s Neutralizer has going for it — the company’s reputation.
The Neutralizer is applied to the back of your phone’s case. According to Aulterra, from there, the Neutralizer actually alters the structure of the electromagnetic frequencies that are put out by your phone. The Neutralizer alters them in a way that they are no longer harmful to the human body. It does this using four layers of paramagnetic minerals inside of the sticker, which can work with any make or model of phone.
There isn’t an abundance of reviews on Aulterra’s Neutralizer out there, but what exists is generally positive. Even more promising is the research that Aulterra links to on their website. Aulterra’s own researchers have concluded that their products, including the Neutralizer, are capable of reducing the damage done to cells by EMF radiation.
Given that Aulterra has been around since the 90s, and the research the company backs up its products with, the Neutralizer may be an anti-radiation sticker worth trying.
Huagasion EMF Blocker
Huagasion’s EMF Blocker claims to work using negative ion technology. After being applied to the back of your device, negative ions neutralize the positive ions that are produced by the phone. These stickers will work when applied to any make or model of phone, and they can even be applied to the side of a computer or the bottom of your laptop.
Huagasion’s EMF Blocker is relatively inexpensive, with a six-pack of stickers retailing for $21.99 at the time of this writing. They received fairly positive reviews, with some verified users even claiming they noticed a reduction in EMF radiation when measuring with an EMF meter. Others experienced fewer headaches and improved quality of sleep when using the product.
This all sounds promising, but as soon as you begin to dig into the company, a red flag pops up. Huagasion appears to exist only on Amazon and other, similar websites. The company has no website of its own. No social media. No way to verify its history or its product’s claims. While it is possible that this product works as advertised, there is no guarantee. Proceed with caution if you opt to try this anti-radiation sticker.
Earthcalm’s Quantum anti-radiation sticker claims to offer EMF protection for phones and other wireless devices, including computers, gaming consoles, and smart meters. If you’ve been on this site for a while, you know how huge smart meter radiation is. That claim alone is enough to warrant looking into this product a bit further.
The Quantum uses something Earthcalm refers to as Mirror Resonance Technology (MRT). MRT is supposed to work by amplifying certain frequencies in the environment. When our bodies pick up on those frequencies, it helps counteract the bad effects from harmful frequencies.
Does it work? Earthcalm’s own website contains research into some of its products, including four different studies into the efficacy of the Quantum. The results of the studies were positive across the board, with the Quantum being shown to eliminate several negative effects of cell phone radiation exposure.
Overall, the research backing makes the Quantum a product worth considering.
Quanthor Anti Radiation Shield
Quanthor’s Anti-Radiation Shield is another sticker that claims to use negative ion technology to neutralize EMF radiation emitted from a cell phone. The sticker can also be used on a laptop, computer, or another device. Made from a combination of semi-precious minerals such as jade, silver, gold, and zinc, Quanthor’s Anti-Radiation Shield is also said to generate Schumann Resonance Waves. These are supposed to help restore balance to your body, reducing the damage done by EMF radiation.
Like other anti-radiation stickers, it is difficult to test the manufacturer’s claims. However, a few things make Quanthor’s Anti-Radiation Shield worth considering. For one, it comes with five years of extended assistance. Additionally, Quanthor claims its products are independently tested and shown to be 90% effective at blocking EMF radiation.
If you’re hypersensitive to EMF radiation or are just concerned about not doing enough, anti-radiation stickers can seem like a worthwhile investment. If all the manufacturers’ claims are to be believed, these products may just be the answer you’ve been looking for.
The problem, however, is that it’s difficult to verify many of these claims. You can’t really test the Aulterra, for example, because an EMF meter isn’t going to pick up on physical changes to the EMF waves. If you aren’t actively decreasing the amount of EMF radiation present, an EMF meter won’t be able to tell you much.
With that in mind, you may be better off investing in a high-quality EMF shielding cell phone case and using lifestyle modifications to further reduce your exposure to EMF radiation. Steps such as using a wired headset when talking on the phone, turning your phone into airplane mode at night and when not in use, and keeping your phone at least ten feet from the bed at night are measurable steps you can take to reduce your EMF radiation exposure.
