The increased use of mobile phones

Tuesday, August 31st, 2010

The increased use of mobile phones has raised the question of possible health effects of such devices. As we know, mobile phones use electromagnetic radiation in the microwave range, which some believe may be harmful to human health. However, cell phone is a must to some people, so we have to find ways to reduce its radiation. Now I will share several ways I adopted.

The first one: Control your call duration and frequency.

Use cell phones as little as possible. You could limit your exposure to radiation by reducing call time, by using speaker options, or by texting. Try not to chat for hours. Furthermore, if you have to use it, you’d better change with the other ear every 1-2 minutes, in order to avoid radiation to the one side brain. In addition, avoid frequently moving while you are answering the cell phone.

The second one: Avoid using cell phone before bed.

Using the handsets before bed or using their phones late at night causes people to take longer to reach the deeper stages of sleep. What’s worse, mobile phone radiation wrecks your sleep. Phone makers’ own scientists discover that bedtime use can lead to headaches, confusion and depression.

The third one: Protect your body

Don’t put the cell phone in your pocket while it is on. The body may suffer more harm than the head. You can put it in your handbag or wallet.

The last one: Mind your details

● Move your cell phone 20cm away from your head when talking, which can effectively reduce radiation doses.

● Put the cell phone away when you try to connect, because at the connection moment it can release vast electromagnetic wave, which causes radiation.

● Do not use the cell phone in enclosed metal spaces, in these places phone use more power to establish connection.

● Do not make a call when the signal strength is one bar or less.

On the whole, we can do something to reduce the radiation. Just pay attention to your daily behaviors.
