8 Tips for Reducing Your Risk of Cancer from Cell Phone Risk
- Keep your cell phone away from your body while itís on (this includes sticking it in your pocket, guys!) The Apple iPhone 4 safety manual reads, “When using iPhone near your body for voice calls or for wireless data transmission over a cellular network, keep iPhone at least 15 mm (5/8 inch) away from the body.”
- Limit the direct use (phone to ear) of your cell phone to less than 30 minutes per day
- Wear a headset, which increases the space between the radiation emitted by your cell phone and your head
- Implement the use of a EMF protection device
- Limit the use of cell phones with children. Cancer Research U.K. recommends that children under 16 use cell phones only for essential calls because their brains and nervous systems are still developing.
- Take antioxidants like glutathione, CoQ10 (non-ionizing radiation may decrease levels of anti-oxidants in the body).
- Take Gingko Biloba, which may prevent oxidative damage in the brain, eye and kidney and helps the body make its own antioxidants.
- Drink green juice. It strengthens your immune system and helps you fight the cancer cells your body makes every day.
Itís sad that our technology-driven culture seems to be bad for our health, and itís a lesson to remember that, the closer we return to our natural state of living, the safer we are and the longer we may live.† How do we marry that with our desire to take advantage of what technology has to offer?
