Are wireless headsets as bad as people say?

I have heard from the people regarding radiation of the wireless or Bluetooth headsets. Many of them are too bad for our body, is it true?

    I'm a very skeptical person, and I never worried about it during my time selling them at RadioShack.  I know there are studies that measure the output power between standby and in-use, but I don't think there is anything definitive.  But then again, just breathing causes cancer... at least in California.

    I've read it is the bluetooth technology that gives off the radiation.  So not just wireless headphones... every bluetooth device.   But also that these bluetooth devices give off a tenth of what cell phones give off... So if you aren't worried about using your cell phone.  You definitely shouldn't be worried about the headphones.

    Look up the recommended distance for keeping your cell phone away from your head. I would lean towards it being bad, but no one seems to care.

    I think reading about Tim Ferriss doing an experiment and keeping a cell phone in his front pocket affected his sperm cell count.

    What happens if you keep it in the back pocket? Curious minds want to know.

    There is no real evidence that supports wireless headsets are bad for you. If that were true, all the gamers would be dying or dead. MANY things give off's the amount that is significant. Radiation from Bluetooth tech just doesn't qualify as a significant amount. You're more likely to die from Doritos and sugary drinks, than radiation from Bluetooth.

    I’d imagine it would be similar to the front pocket.
