1. Children should only use cell phones next to their heads for emergencies.
It is advisable children to use cell phones for emergencies. Their skull is thinner in comparison with the adult’s skull because their brain is still developing. The cell phone’s radiation enters children’s brain more deeply and can cause more damage. Anyway, texting is fine for children because this way they keep the phone far from their head.
2. Talk on your cell phone and keep it away from your body as much as possible.
The radiation is one forth the strength at a distance of two inches and fifty times lower at three feet. Use more the speakerphone mode or a wired headset.
3. Avoid using your phone when the signal is weak.
Try not to use your phone when the signal is weak or when moving in a car or train, because it increases power to a maximum as the phone frequently tries to connect to a new relay antenna. It is best to only telephone when all the signal bars are showing.
4. Don’t carry your cell phone on your body all the time.
Avoid keeping the phone near you at night, for instance, under the pillow or on a bedside table, especially if pregnant. However, you can stop electromagnetic emissions by putting it on ”flight” or ”off-line” mode.
If you must take the phone with you, place the keypad toward your body and the back toward the outside. This way the electromagnetic fields move away from you.
5. Use your phone to establish contact or for conversations that last a few minutes.
Follow this tip because the biological effects are directly linked to the exposure duration. When talking on your phone for a long period, use a land line with a corded phone, not a cordless phone.
6. Change sides frequently
Do this while talking on your cell phone to spread out your exposure. Also, put the cell phone to the ear after your correspondent picks up. This way you limit the power of the electromagnetic field released near your ear and the exposure duration.
7. Communicate via text
Do this rather than making a call as much as possible to limit the exposure duration and the closeness to the body.
8. Try not to use your cell phone in places like a bus, where you can expose other people to your phone’s electromagnetic fields.
9. Choose a device with the lowest SAR possible (Specific Absorption Rate). It is a measure of the magnetic field strength absorbed by the body.
10. Avoid using your cell phone in a parked car.
Using your cell phone in a car functions on the same principle as a microwave oven. In these two cases, they are metallic areas where RF radiation is magnified. It is like putting your head in a turned on microwave.
The RF cell phone radiation goes back by the car’s metallic structure and increases the radiation. This is known as the Faraday cage effect. This reflected radiation is absorbed by your body at a higher level.
