Mobile Phone Safety Facts

  • 2022-05-03


Use the following methods when using your mobile to protect your well being.

  • Keep your handsets, if possible, at least 2 to 7 inches away from your head or use loudspeaker mode. It decreases the transmission of electro-magnetic radiation to the brain significantly.
  • Don’t keep you mobile close to your head when sleeping. Switch it off in the night or keep it 6 feet away from your head.
  • Don’t use your mobile if you are pregnant. The developing organs of the fetus or child are the most sensitive to any possible effects of electromagnetic radiation (EMR) exposure.
  • Avoid using mobile in ‘metal containers’ like vehicles, elevators and any other type of metal container as it increases the EMR.
  • Avoid using the wired headsets. If you do use headsets use an air tube headset with ferrite beads. Bluetooth are better as they emit 1/100th the EMR of a normal mobile
  • With regular headsets you can get 3 times more EMR than if you hold the mobile against your ear.
  • Keep your mobile away from newborns. EMR travels through children’s brains much more easily due to thinner skulls and hence increases the risk of cancer.
  • Avoid putting your mobile in your pant pocket – as radiation can affect your fertility.
  • When buying a mobile – look for one with low SAR or Specific Absorption Rate. Lower the SAR number the better.
