Cell Phone Safety Tips

Protecting yourself and your loved ones:·    

  • Reduce your radiation exposure.  Use your cell phone only when necessary. 

  • Keep your phone away from your body—especially your head—and use the speaker feature. Read the user agreement fine print, under “legal.” It will tell you phones should not be held against the body!

  • Get a land line with an old-fashioned corded phone, not a cordless “DECT” one. 

  • Turn OFF your Wi-Fi, especially at night, and/or eliminate it completely by using an Ethernet cable to access the Internet. 

  • Keep your phone in Airplane mode, and as well, low power setting. Both will greatly decrease the amount of energy the devices are emitting/pulsing.

  • Use text messaging when possible, and use cell phones in speaker mode or with the use of hands-free kits.

  • Make only short or essential calls on cell phones.

  • Avoid carrying your phone against the body like in a pocket, sock, or bra. Cell phone manufacturers can’t guarantee that the amount of radiation you’re absorbing will be at a safe level.

  • Using your phone in your car  increases the radiation your body absorbs because the phone and tower work harder to communicate.

  • Keep an eye on your signal strength (i.e. how many bars you have). The weaker your cell signal, the harder your phone has to work and the more radiation it gives off. It’s better to wait until you have a stronger signal before using your device.

  • Avoid making calls in cars, elevators, trains, and buses. The cell phone works harder to get a signal through metal, so the power level increases.

  • Remember that cell phones are not toys or teething items.
