14 Ways to Reduce Cell Phone Radiation Exposure

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

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.

This is a good article full of information that is important to know, especially for the younger generation who doesn't seem to always think there is a problem with long-term cell phone talking
