14 Ways to Reduce Cell Phone Radiation Exposure

It’s no surprise to most people that cell phones emit radiation. Technically, it is known as low-level radio frequency or RF which is similar to that emitted by microwaves. And, you may recall the warning labels on microwaves that instruct people not to stand too close to microwaves while they are running.

Research showing that cell phone use can be linked to brain cancer is conflicting. There is sufficient data to show that cell phone use affects brain activity and brain glucose levels after use. And last year the World Health Organization declared cell phone radiation to be a potential carcinogen. So there is definitely enough cause for concern.

While the scientists battle it out in the laboratories, here are 14 ways you can reduce your exposure to cell phone radiation:

1.  Go old school. Use a land line as much as possible.

2.  If you must use a cell phone, use it infrequently and keep calls short. If your BFF really is your best friend forever she or he will understand.

3.  Use the speaker phone on a cell phone to keep the device further away from your head.  You’ll still be exposed to some radiation but it reduces the amount near your head.

4.  Use earbuds with your cell phone if possible. Again, this is to keep the cell phone farther away from your head.

5.  Choose a phone that emits less radiation. More manufacturers are becoming conscious of the health risks and attempting to manufacture lower radiation models. A Google search can help you identify one the next time you are in the market for a cell phone.

Keep reading to learn about the foods and nutrients that help protect you against radiation…6.  Skip the Bluetooth. While they usually emit less radiation than cell phones, people tend to wear them much longer and actually are exposed to far more radiation as a result.

7.  Choose natural supplements known to reduce cell damage from radiation like alpha lipoic acid and vitamins C and E.

8.  Eat more seaweed. Seaweed is nature’s anti-radiation remedy.

9.  Use a protective phone case that reduces radiation exposure. Some are available at pongresearch.com.

10.  Give it a rest. Do you really need to be on the phone or texting so much? Of course not. So, give yourself a break and turn it off.

11.  Keep the phone away from your bed. Sleeping with the phone near your head, such as on your night stand, can expose you to radiation for long periods of time.

12.  Don’t put it in your pocket. If you must, keep the phone’s antenna (usually on the back of the phone) facing away from your body.

13.  Watch the signal strength. When the signal strength is weak the phone will emit MORE radiation in an attempt to communicate with the cell tower.

14.  Use a holster and belt clip. While they are not perfect, they do provide a barrier to reduce exposure.

I read that the cell phones emit a dangerous non-ionizing form of electromagnetic radiation; radiation which can be absorbed by the tissues and cells which come into close contact with the phone. That's why I decided to do something that reduce cell phone radiation levels for protect to my family. I found cases from Pong Research, I read that this technology reduces exposure to radiation while optimizing the mobile reception. I was skeptical about it, anyway, I decided to try it, because Pong is the only technology proven in FCC-certified laboratories to reduce the exposure to mobile device radiation by up to 95% below the FCC limit without compromising the device’s ability to communicate.
