Airpods in particular have been singled out because of how they sit deeply enough the ear canal to expose some fragile parts of the ear to unsafe radiation. Scientists are warning that microwave radiation from many popular wireless technologies could pose serious health risks, this petition has quickly collected 250 signatures.
"These [devices] are not limited to and include baby monitors, smart meters, broadcast antennas, Wi-Fi, and cordless and cellular phones and their base stations, besides infrastructures and electric devices that are used to deliver electricity and generate extremely-low frequency (ELF) electromagnetic field (EMF)", wrote the scientists in the petition.

EMF is a form of radiowave similar to - but not as powerful or risky as - X-rays or UV. Along with cancer, genetic damage and neurological disorders are possibly linked to EMF exposure in humans. And yet, the opposing view exists within the very same scientific community, represented in part by professors at the University of Pennsylvania, calling foul on the alleged effects of EMF radiation on the human body, on the basis of their point of origin.
The World Health Organisation developed guidelines that regulate the amount of EMF the devices are allowed to emit.
But the new petitions' authors warn that even these guidelines could be unsafe - and much more research is needed.
The petition also mentions the fact that respective agencies that are supposed to introduce EMF exposure safety standards on permissible EMF exposure levels have so far failed to so, adding that "no sufficient guidelines" have been imposed "to protect the general public, particularly children who are more vulnerable to the effects of EMF".
