Cut your cell phone cancer risk!

Cut your cell phone cancer risk!

The World Health Organization (WHO) states that cell phones may cause cancer and it's quite upsetting to think that something that's become such a can't-live-without can be linked to brain cancer. But, there are many things that a phone addicted person can do to minimise health risks. By lowering your exposure to radiation, you will reduce the potential risks to cancer and other problems.

• Make use of a headset: Headsets emit less radiation than cell phones. So, the farther away you are from the source of radiation, the less damage it can do (Environmental Working Group).
• Don't use cell phones for a long period of time; keep calls as short as possible.
• If you have trouble maintaining a connection, wait until you get better service because when your phone has low network, it has to work harder to connect, therefore emits more radiation.
• Avoid making calls from cars and elevators as cell phones use more power to establish a connection in enclosed metal spaces.
• Increase the distance between yourself and your cell phone. Even holding your handset marginally further away from your head helps the radiation levels drop off very quickly.
• Switch sides regularly while communicating on your cell phone.
• Invest in phone with lowest SAR possible (SAR= specific absorption rate, a measure of the strength of the magnetic field absorbed by the body).

Keep yourself safe and avoid cancer risks by following these simple steps!
