Creating awareness and reducing radiation from celluar phones since 2010.
Cancerblock is an application for the android operating system that limits exposure to a cell phone’s radiation energy and significantly improves battery life. Cancerblock has taken a stance on the issue of cell phone radiation that raises awareness, allows for effective prevention and protection for cell phone users, and funds research. For a period of time determined by the application’
“The most recent science – while not conclusive – raises serious issues about the cancer risk of cell phone use that must be addressed through further research. [But we] can take steps to reduce exposure [now].”

The developers hope that Cancerblock will help users better understand the radiation risks, including cancer, associated with extended exposure to cell phone radiation while also keeping your phone functional and safe. In addition to awareness, Cancerblock will donate 10% of our total profits to cancer research.
Do Cell Phones Cause Cancer?
A pioneering non-profit organization called the Environmental Working Group (EWG) has published an important online consumer guide reporting in excess of 1,000 cell phones, PDAs and smartphones on how much radiation they emit.
“We would like to be able to say that cell phones are safe,” said EWG senior scientist and lead study author Olga Naidenko, Ph.D. “But we can’t. The most recent science – while not conclusive – raises serious issues about the cancer risk of cell phone use that must be addressed through further research. [But we] can take steps to reduce exposure [now].”
With 4 billion people on the planet talking on cell phones or 60 percent of the world’s population (according to the EWG), 270.3 million wireless subscribers in the U.S. or 87 percent of Americans as of Dec. 2010 (according to the CTIA) and recent studies finding “significantly higher risks for brain and salivary gland tumors among people using cell phones for 10 years or longer,” the question of your exposure is critical and prescient.
How Does Cancerblock work?
A cell phone’s SAR, or its Specific Absorption Rate, is a measure of the amount of radio frequency (RF) energy absorbed by the body when using a handset. All cell phones emit RF energy and have SAR ratings that vary with each cell phone model. In the United States, the highest legal Specific Absorption Rate is 1.6 watts per kilogram (w/kg). Many smart phones emit radiation near the maximum legal level. Motorola’s Droid 2 Global emits radiation at 1.58 w/kg; Motorola’s Droid at 1.49 w/kg; Apple’s iPhone 4 at 1.17 w/kg. Cancerblock has been developed in response to the high radiation rates of these popular devices.
Cancerblock turns off all four cell phone radiation energy sources—antenna, Wi-Fi, GPS and Bluetooth— limiting exposure to both the known and unknown side effects of extended cell phone use. Another benefit of Cancerblock is the conservation of battery life due to the reduction in signal broadcasting and reception, significantly lowering power usage. With a default schedule of 15 minutes off and 1 minute on, a user of Cancerblock reduces their radiation exposure by 9,408 minutes in one week or a total reduction of 93.33%! Also included on www.Cancerblock.net is a background section with links to additional content and source material that is used for development and awareness.
Who can use Cancerblock?
Any cell phone user who has concerns about his or her radiation exposure from cell phones can use Cancerblock, especially pregnant mothers, young children, average, high-use and “power” cell phone users.
What are the versions and costs of Cancerblock?
There is one version of Cancerblock on the market, compatible with the Android operating system. Currently, there are iPhone 3 and 4 versions of the application in development. Cancerblock can be purchased for $2.99, 10% of which will be donated to cancer research. The developer has plans to expand this application and to regularly add new features, which will be announced at www.Cancerblock.net.
