5 Safety Tips for Cellphone Use

USE A HEADSET OR SPEAKER

Choose either wired or wireless when possible. Alternatively we can also use the phone speaker mode. If you go wireless make sure to take your headset out of your ear when you’re not on a call.

WHEN IN USE, HOLD PHONE AWAY FROM YOUR BODY

The amount of radiation absorbed by your head and body decreases dramatically with even a small distance. Don’t put the phone in your pocket or clip it to your belt, even when using your headset.

TEXT MORE, TALK LESS

Phones emit less radiation when sending text rather than voice communications. with the smart phone around, we also have the option of communicating using the internet application like whatapp. The option will be much cheaper and safer.

CALL WHEN THE SIGNAL IS STRONG

Fewer signal bars mean the phone must try harder to broadcast its signal. Research shows that radiation exposure increases dramatically when cell phone signals are weak.

Don’t store your phone in your pocket (or under your pillow)

When a phone is on and not in use, it still sends out an intermittent signal to connect with nearby cell phone towers, which means radiation exposure is still happening.
