Cell Phone EMF Tips

The radiation produced by cell phones has been linked with everything from headaches, fatigue and dizziness to brain cancer, eye tumors and memory loss. Here are 5 easy steps you can take – starting right now – to protect yourself and your family from this silent, potentially deadly danger.

Warning: Radiation increases when the signal is weak. The further a phone is from its tower, the weaker the signal . When handling a weak signal, the phone increases power to a maximum producing more radiation. If you struggle to get a signal, show low reception bars, or tend to drop calls in a certain area (common in elevators, subways, basements, and other enclosed spaces), the call may still connect but you could be irradiating yourself and those around you.

Caution: Using an earpiece or Bluetooth not always the answer. There’s a big push, mainly by driving-safety advocates, to use earpieces with cell phones. Although these devices leave your hands-free, some headsets may concentrate and channel radiation directly through the ear canal into your brain. A Bluetooth wireless headset combined with the phone can exceed even the current inadequate safety limits. When on a cell phone, use the speakerphone or a wired earpiece.
Warning: Wearing your phone like a beeper. If your phone is turned on and worn on your belt or in a pocket you could be receiving a constant blast of radiation from the battery pack (which usually is against your body). Another blast occurs when you receive a call. Smart phones can generate more EMF's than older "dumb" cell phones (See EWG's Guide to Safer Cell Phone Use). Because electromagnetic field exposure diminishes rapidly beyond 3 feet those around you can also be impacted.

Wearing your cell phone on your belt also takes into danger reproductive organs. For men, there have been studies linking EMF radiation to lower sperm count. It’s okay to carry it on you if the device is in "flight" or "off-line" mode. A better place for your cell is in your purse or briefcase.

Think distance! Another safety tip: If you can't be on speaker phone, switch which side of the head you use your phone on from call to call so you spread out exposure.

Minimize your talk time – and try to eliminate any calls over 20 minutes.
Scientists have no idea how long you can safely talk on a cell phone. And side effects such as headaches and dizziness have been observed after calls as short as two minutes.

Do not let your children use cell phones. Because their skulls are thinner and smaller, children absorb much greater amounts of radiation than mobile-phone-using adults do. Plus, they’re at greater risk of developing serious side effects because their cumulative lifetime exposure will be greater.
