10 Great Tips: Cell Phones & Limiting Radiation Exposure

In July, 2008 a new warning about the health dangers of cell phones came from the Director of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute and this new advisory was issued. In addition emfReviewhas provided more tips for your safety.

1. Do not allow children to use a cell phone, except for emergencies. The developing organs of a fetus or child are the most likely to be sensitive to any possible effects of exposure to electromagnetic fields.
emf Review Alert: Children are also at risk, because if they start younger and usage turns out to cause damage, they will be using the cell phones from an early age and may become ill earler. Dr Keith Black, Chairman, Neurosurgery Cedars-Sinai Medical Center said July 29th 2008, “What happens after 20, 30 or 40 years of use, that’s the concern”

2. While communicating using your cell phone, try to keep the cell phone away from the body as much as possible. The amplitude of the electromagnetic field is one fourth the strength at a distance of two inches and fifty times lower at three feet.
emf Review Alert: Tests on the Tri-field meter confirm that the electromagnetic field does drop off significantly at 2 ½ feet. Try to get a headset that has at least this distance between the phone hook up and the earpiece. Whenever possible, use the speaker-phone mode or a wireless Bluetooth headset, which has less than 1/100th of the electromagnetic emission of a normal cell phone. Use of a hands-free ear piece attachment may also reduce exposures. emf Review Alert You can also try the tested AIRCOM hollow tube, airtube headset. The tube of air, actually stop over 97% of the radiation emitting from the phone from getting next to your head and in your ear.

3. Avoid using your cell phone in places, like a bus, where you can passively expose others to your phone's electromagnetic fields.
emf Review Alert: Yes Be careful—stay clear of other peoples phones too. Every cell phone sends some radio wave radiation—so stand back.

4. Avoid carrying your cell phone on your body at all times. Do not keep it near your body at night such as under the pillow or on a bedside table, particularly if pregnant. You can also put it on "flight" or "off-line" mode, which stops electromagnetic emissions.
emf Review Alert: iphone and blackberry users, your phones are regularly sending out signals to get your Internet downloads and emails. At the same time—you’re being exposed to radio waves and you don’t even know it. Turn to off wifi until you’re ready to read your emails, then get them all at once.

5. If you must carry your cell phone on you, make sure that the keypad is positioned toward your body and the back is positioned toward the outside so that the transmitted electromagnetic fields move away from your rather than through you.
emf Review Alert: if you must carry it with you, get a man-bag, briefcase or a purse---attach the headset to the phone and keep the earpiece in your ear.

6. Only use your cell phone to establish contact or for conversations lasting a few minutes, as the biological effects are directly related to the duration of exposure. For longer conversations, use a landline with a corded phone, not a cordless phone, which uses electromagnetic emitting technology similar to that of cell phones.
emf Review Alert: Remember, pagers and walkie-talkies emit the same electromagnetic radiation too.

7. Switch sides regularly while communicating on your cell phone to spread out your exposure. Before putting your cell phone to the ear, wait until your correspondent has picked up. This limits the power of the electromagnetic field emitted near your ear and the duration of your exposure
emf Review Alert: If you MUST talk on that phone and hold it (instead of wearing a safe air tube headset) put it on speaker while you’re listening, then switch it off when you talk and hold it several inches from your mouth.

8. Avoid using your cell phone when the signal is weak or when moving at high speed, such as in a car or train, as this automatically increases power to a maximum as the phone repeatedly attempts to connect to a new relay antenna.
emf Review Alert: You can see this concept in action as we compare cell phone emissions in a moving car vs. parked car in our product demonstrations. You’ve also got to see how various model phones send out different emissions depending on their location.

9. When possible, communicate via text messaging rather than making a call, limiting the duration of exposure and the proximity to the body.
emf Review Alert: Again. Text. Drop the phone. Send. Walk away. That phone is sending out emissions even when its texting so don’t hold it in your hand while it does.

10. Choose a device with the lowest SAR possible (SAR = Specific Absorption Rate, which is a measure of the strength of the magnetic field absorbed by the body). SAR ratings of contemporary phones by different manufacturers are available by searching for "SAR ratings cell phones" on the Internet.
emf Review Alert: check out product demonstrations to see how various phones with various SAR levels still send out radiation wave.
