To protect you health, here are a few guidelines for use of cell phones and other wireless devices:
- No cell phones for children. Until they are 20, children and teens should not use a cell phone or wireless device of any type except for an emergency.
- Avoid carrying your cell phone on your body. In the manufacturer’s manual in fine print, it warns to avoid using or carrying your cell phone close to your head or body at any time. FOLLOW IT! Keep it in a purse or bag, and do not carry it in your pocket unless it is OFF.
- Keep your cell phone use to a minimum. Turn your cell phone off more often. Reserve it for emergencies or important matters.
- Do not use more than one wireless device at one time, such as using your cell phone and tablet together.
- Reduce or eliminate other wireless devices.
- Limit cell phone use to areas with excellent reception. The weaker the reception, the more power your phone must use to transmit, and the more power it uses, the more radiation it emits.
- Respect others. Some people are sensitive to EMR, so when in public, keep your cell phone turned off or on airplane mode. Children are especially more vulnerable, so avoid using your cell phone near children.
- Wait for call connection, before placing the phone next to you. The phone emits the most intense radiation during the initial connection, then lowers its power once a connection is established.
- Use speaker mode or a well-shielded wired headset. This will keep the cell phone away from your body.
Be careful what case you use. Many standard cases can weaken the cell phone’s signal, shorten battery life, or increase radiation emissions. Do not use any case unless it has been proven not to increase SAR or weaken your signal. One of the best that I have found is pong cases.
