Your Ultimate Guide to Reducing the EMF Radiation Exposure from your Cell/Mobile Phone.Your Ultimate Guide
We use our phones constantly - talking, texting, taking pictures, social media, music, audio books, reading digital books, games, email, and so much more.
Some of you probably don't even have a computer.This makes it even more important to use our phones safely. Want even more details?
When you are in a car - on a bus, train, airplane, etc
- Don’t use in a moving vehicle.
- I know, I know you love to spend your travel time on the phone.
- But the signal is stronger when you are moving because the phone is constantly having to scan for contact to keep your connection….so output is at maximum. (this includes trains, buses, cars etc)
- Don’t use in a parked car.
- You are in a closed metal container which bounces the signals all around like being in a microwave, creating what’s called a Faraday cage effect…and all that radiation is absorbed into your body.
- Don't use phone when you only have one or two bars - Save it for a strong signal.
- When reception is bad (such as in a rural areas or when you’re driving) use your phone for emergencies only.
- The weaker the signal, the more the radio frequency has to boost itself to get connected, increasing your exposure.
When not in use or standby
- Store it don’t wear it.
- Unless you’re on it, stow the phone in your purse or bag.
- If you keep it on your waist, keep it turned off.
- Studies have shown that keeping a cell phone in your pocket can decrease sperm count.
- Don’t sleep with your phone next to you – and don’t use the phone as an alarm clock.
- Truthfully, I’d suggest not even having the phone in your bedroom.
- Did you know the radiation from the phone can interfere with melatonin levels….and your sleep patterns.
Sperm Issues, Pregnancy, Babies, Children
- Men – if you want to be a father – limit your phone usage and don’t put it in your pocket. The radiation can reduce your sperm count and affect quality. (This also goes for using a laptop on your lap) Read more about radiation and fertility
- Protect the kids.
- Do not let children use cell phones except for emergencies, and then tell them not to put phone next to their heads.
- For older kids, it shouldn’t take much encouragement to get them to text more than they chat.
- If you are pregnant, wanting to get pregnant or are elderly severely limit usage.
Myth - You are safe if you don't own a cell phone - have a low SAR phone - use a Cordless Phone - and other reasons why you aren't as safe as you think you are!
- Don't think that just because you are using a low SAR doesn’t mean your phone is safe.
- SAR is the rating given to how much radiation your phone gives off.
- The surprising thing is that some of the higher SAR phones, actually work more efficiently, so normally work at lower power, reducing the amount of radiation, while some of the low SAR phone can have higher exposure because they need to work at full power more of the time.
- You can find the SAR for your individual cell phone by typing the FCC ID number of your cell phone into the FCC database available here: http://www.fcc.gov/oet/ea/fccid
- Don’t just switch to your cordless phone
- If you’re like me, my strategy was to use my cordless phone when at home.
- Surprise, it’s actually as bad or worse than a cell phone, especially for children.Your cordless phone is like having a cell tower in your living room.
- Don't think that just because you don't personally use a cell phone you aren't affected.
- If you live in our world today, you are being bombarded with the energies of everyone else's phone, WiFi, WiMax (city-wide WiFi) cell towers, smart meters...and the list goes on.
Metal in Your Body
- Limit usage if you have braces, metal fillings, screws, plates, metal frame glasses, even metal jewelry.
- These items can magnify the EMF energies.
You aren't going to stop using your phone so we invite you to use these safety measures.
You can also wear a BioElectric Shield and use additional local protection on your phone! (See our Buyer's Guide to Reliable EMF Protection)
