Avoid using your cell phone when the signal is weak or when moving:
Mobile emits more radiation When moving such as in a car or train and in weak signal areas as this automatically increases power to a maximum as the phone repeatedly attempts to connect to a new relay antenna.
Avoid using your cell phone in places like a bus, where you can passively expose others to your phone’s electromagnetic fields.
Try to use speaker phone or wired headset whenever possible:
While talking on your cell phone, try to keep the cell phone away from your body as much as possible. The amplitude of the electromagnetic field (radiation) is one fourth the strength at a distance of two inches and fifty times lower at three feet.
Try to use left ear for more time and wait until call pickup:
Studies reveal that effect to your brain will be less when you speak with you left ear side as brain is far away from radiation.
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.
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.
Choose a device with the lowest SAR possible:
Specific Absorption Rate, which is a measure of the strength of the magnetic field absorbed by the body. Choose the phones from good manufactures so that low SAR maintained.
Children should only use cell phones next to their heads for emergencies:
Children’s skulls are thinner than adults’ and their brains are still developing. Hence, radiation from cell phones penetrates more deeply into their brains and is likely to cause more damage. Texting (while holding the phone away from their body) is still fine for kids!
Don’t talk for hours:
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 land line with a corded phone, not a cordless phone, which also uses electromagnetic emitting technology similar to that of cell phones.
Try to use SMS and mails whenever possible:
As talking is like giving more exposure to radiation, try to use sms while in journey and low signals areas.
When possible, communicate via text messaging rather than making a call, to limit the duration of exposure and the proximity to the body.
