Cell Phone Safety Tips

The following may help limit exposure to electromagnetic radiation from mobile phones. If you’re still nervous, keep your blood pressure in check and use a regular, landline phone.

– Hold the phone away from your head

– Use an earpiece or headset

– Keep cell phone conversations short

– Pull the retractable antenna out as far as it will go

– Hang up when you’ve got a bad connection (the phone emits more radiation if it’s struggling to maintain a connection)

– Limit use of cell phones by children

– In your car, use a cell phone with an outside antenna
