Anti-radiation patches have no proven benefit, but Enjoyphoenix promotes them nonetheless

May 4, 2022, enjoy phoenix, the influencer known to all, promoted on her anti-radiation patch network. The problem? It is that no study proves that it works and these small accessories can even pose a danger … We explain you.

Migraines, dizziness, nausea, sleep disturbances, fatigue, burning sensation, tingling in the hands, irritability … these symptoms are sometimes associated, by those who notice them, with wave intolerance. Even if the causal link is not proven between these very real evils, which can ruin people’s lives and waves, the latter actually exist: they are transmitted naturally by all daily wireless devices, from the Internet box to the smartphone. These uncertainties about electro-sensitivity do not prevent companies from making their money “miracle” solutions, sold by influencers. And one has to be careful.

Just yesterday, Marie Lopez aka @Enjoyphoenix, influencer with 5.5 million followers on Instagram, promoted, through a paid partnership of a supposed gadget create a magnetic barrier to protect against the waves coming from our cell phones. A metallic pellet created by the Swiss brand fazup to hold directly on the phone that claims to reduce or cancel symptoms attributed to the waves.

“Fazup is not a simple sticker, but a passive antenna that adheres precisely to the antenna on your mobile thanks to the included installation tool. It regulates the emission of mobile waves at the source and reduces your exposure, but does not eliminate 100% of the waves “, explains the biggest interested party on her Insta stories, which span 7 slides and of course lead to a -20% promotional code.

Hmm … Really?

The problem is that absolutely nothing proves that these patches really work. False promises that we went to check out a FAQ on public exposure to the waves, in which the National Frequency Agency explains that “ anti-radiation devices intended to be placed on or near the antenna of the mobile phone do not show significant protection efficiency for all the tested mobile phones and frequency bands. »

The latter also refers to the work carried out by the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration (ANSES) in 2013 on the subject. Thirteen units had been tested and here are the conclusions of this study:

“Anti-radiation devices intended to be placed on or near the antenna of the mobile phone do not show significant protection efficiency for all the tested mobile phones and frequency bands. Therefore, no conclusion can be drawn about their effectiveness in reducing DAS. level. »

ANSES has also explained that “Protections that alter the radio performance of mobile phones, for example by degrading reception capacity, risk, under real conditions of use, increasing the level of exposure of the” user “. Our colleagues from Numerama have explained in detail why consumer devices emitting waves have also been shown to be risk-free and highly controlled in France.

Anti-wave patch for smartphone, efficiency far from being scientifically proven

Mobilization based on fear

Enjoyphoenix was not the only influencer Fazup contacted. Many of them have promoted this sticker with quirky promises. The purpose of the maneuver? According to a study by BFM Business : scare young mothers or people who want to have children, which invites Instagrammere to remember that children absorb ten times more waves than adults. Of course, there is no scientific source cited.

The founders themselves have no evidence of effectiveness

The interview about the effectiveness of the products they market after Capital, the two founders of Fazup admitted that they had no evidence revealing the true effectiveness of their stickers. They also admit to playing on words (to avoid criminal consequences): “We write, for example, that our product removes the feeling of headache, not that it removes headaches. If people understand otherwise, it’s their problem. “.

A vague discourse that continues to spread on a large scale, because by targeting influencers with an impressive audience like Enjoyphoenix, sales of these small products can skyrocket. Regardless of their usefulness or the proven existence of what they claim to fight.
