Cell phone Jammers @ Grand Mosque!

While the Holy month of Ramadan is about to depart, many Muslims pray in the late evenings. One of the biggest gatherings for Taraweeh prayers in Kuwait is @ the Grand Mosque. It is such a great time of the year. To make sure everybody enjoys the holiness of these nights and prayers, the Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs installed cell phone jammers throughout the mosque for a while now to make sure you listening to Quran and not Nancy Ajram or Shakira while you’re praying πŸ™‚

Today, while doing my daily reading, I read an article of a heart consultant (AlWatan Local Newspaper) warning of these devices’ effect of pacemaker patients! Cell phone jammers have been banned in some countries due to fears of it interfering with medical devices, but I wonder to what extent is this true and accurate. I absolutely agree that it’s always better to be safe than sorry, which will translate to possibly stopping someone’s heart if you don’t, but it’s my curiosity that wants to know. Scientifically, is it possible? and to what extent?

This seems like a job for myth-busters! I wonder if they’ve covered this already!
