The truth about many gadgets and appliances today may surprise you, especially when it comes to EMF. While it’s true that we have benefitted greatly from these innovations, it’s also true that these innovations emit a degree of electromagnetic frequency which can cause harm to our health. Did you know that cell phones emit a high degree of radiation, and this can lead to health issues and conditions such as chronic fatigue, muscle and joint pain, and migraines? With excessive use, it can even lead to the development of more serious conditions like cancer. Here are some effective and easy ways you can protect yourself from radiation from your cell phone.
Make use of airplane mode
Most cell phones produced nowadays already have an ‘airplane mode’ function, which allows it to be used on airplanes. By putting your phone on airplane mode, you are basically cutting off its wireless transmissions, therefore effectively reducing its radiation emissions as well. Also, if your cell phone is on airplane mode, its battery can last longer. If you can’t put it on airplane mode, simply turn it off when you are not using it.
Carry it properly
For most of us, the most obvious place to store our cell phones is in our front pockets. But if you want to protect yourself from cell phone radiation, stop doing this immediately. Opt instead to put your cell phone in a purse, bag, knapsack, or briefcase, and keep it as far away from your body as possible. If you have to put it in your front pocket, at least turn it off or put it on airplane mode first.
Don’t sleep with it
The bedroom is a place for sleep, and you should keep it that way. This means avoiding placing your cell phone on your bedside table, where it rests less than a foot away from your head. If you really have to place it on your bedside table, you should, once again, turn it off or place it on airplane mode. As a matter of fact, some experts recommend limiting the presence of electronic devices in your bedroom altogether, as you don’t want these devices to interrupt your sleep rhythm and inhibit your body’s production of melatonin, which promotes sleep.
Most of us use our cell phones every day, and whilst you can’t escape from this, you can do something about it. Instead of giving someone a call, why not just text or send an SMS? But if you have to call, use headphones or put your phone on speaker.
Protecting yourself from cell phone radiation can be easily done if you know how to do it. You can also benefit from a wide range of cell phone radiation protection products which are expressly-designed to block your exposure to radiation.
