Google Glass has high SAR “Specific Absorption Rate” rating

Google Glass emits more EMF/RF radiation than most cell phones on the market.

As a body-worn, microwave-emitting device, Google is required by Federal law to test the Specific Absorption Rate or SAR of the Google Glass. This is a measure of the maximum microwave radiation absorbed by the user in 6 minutes averaged over one gram of tissue. Although Google did not post the SAR information on its web site, the Google Glass test reports can be seen on the FCC’s website at by entering “A4R” in the Grantee Code field, and the FCC ID for the current version of the Glass is X1. A major concern is that Google Glass users may be wearing their Glass device on their heads for more than 12 hours a day putting their health at risk.
