Cordless Phone Radiation Requires EMF Protection
When most people think about the potential radiation they're exposed to on a day-to-day basis, things like cell phones, microwave ovens, and wireless internet (WiFi) are typically thought of as the main culprits. While this is certainly true to an extent, there are many other sources that aren't considered as much. Cordless phone radiation is one such area.
It's bad news for anyone who thought they were safe from harmful radiation and electromagnetic fields (EMF) by ditching the cell phone and keeping with the traditional cordless phone, but it doesn’t stop there.
Cordless Phone Radiation compares to Cell Tower Radiation
According to one study by Swedish researchers, cordless phone radiation can increase the risk of developing cancer. Furthermore, the phone's base station might be giving off even more radiation throughout the day than when the phone itself is in use. The phones have even been described as having a cell phone tower right in your living room.
"Having a cordless phone is like having a mobile mast in your house," Harley Street physician Dr. David Dowson has said. "I'd recommend anyone who has one to switch to a plug-in phone."
Lower SAR Ratings Aren't the Answer
Even phones with low specific absorption rates (SAR) aren't necessarily any safer for you. The SAR is a measure of the rate at which energy is absorbed by the human body when exposed to a radio frequency (RF) electromagnetic field. Sometimes a higher SAR means the phone works more efficiently and doesn't have to use as much power, hence lowering the cordless phone radiation emitted.
EMF protection from cordless phone radiation is necessary
Unfortunately, we live in a world that almost requires us to have access to phones at any point in the day. It just wouldn't be feasible for most people to give them up completely, regardless of the amount of cordless phone radiation. That's why it's important to invest in a BioElectric Shield and some of our other great products that will help reduce the amount of cordless phone radiation and other forms of radiation you're exposed to every day.
You can visit our cordless phone product section, but we'd also encourage you to get full body protection from EMF, not just from your portable phone, but from WiFi, cellphones, and other sources of EMF. You'll learn what kind of protection you need (based on your lifestyle) by taking the EMF Protection Quiz.
