California Dept. of Health Releases Cell Phone Warning
California has released guidelines to reduce or avoid harmful cellphone radiation. There is reason to be concerned about the long-term health issues of cell phones and other sources of EMF radiation; some of the issues are brain cancer, tumors, headaches, fatigue, low sperm count, impaired memory and focus and well as hearing and sleep issues.
On December 14th, 2017, California health officials announced public warning statements for cell phone users. Dr. Karen Smith with the California Department Of Public Health offered 2 quick suggestions during an interview with a San Francisco radio station, KPIX. She said that when you sleep, you should keep the cell phone away from your body. Secondly, she suggested not carrying your cell phone in a pocket. Safer storage would be a purse or pack.
Why Guidelines were Released Now
In 2009, Dr. Joel Moskowitz at UC Berkely sued the California Department of Public of Public Health for refusing to release information about the dangers of cell phone use. He won his case. And even with that victory, Dr. Smith makes very limited safety warnings, suggesting instead that “our position in science is evolving”. Can anyone tell me what this exactly means? Her reasoning for releases the safety guidelines now is based on the fact that 95% of Americans use cell phones, including many children who own their own phones by the time they are only 10 years old.

Our Recommendations for Cell Phone Safety
The BioElectric Shield Co has stronger safely suggestions to offer.
We suggest that keeping your cell phones, modems, routers and other electronics out of your bedroom will provide you with a healthier night of sleep. At night, your body is in the “rest and repair” mode. When you are being bombarded by WiFi signals from any source, your body’s immune system must be operating all night long. This protective activity prevents your body from full healing at restoration as you sleep. If you wake up tired or not feeling well, try removing all sources of EMF from your bedroom.
