It’s important to understand that cellphone use has gone up significantly since 10 years ago, meaning that more recent results may show an even higher risk. Statistically, the average person in Britain and many other developed nations will soon have about 2 cellphones each. With the increased number of cellphones on the citizens of the world comes something known as ‘second-hand cellphone use’. Just as with smoking, sitting in a bus, airplane, or train will expose you to upwards of several hundred cellphones at one time.
In other words, the large-scale global use of cellphones is essentially a massive biological experiment. The true long-term effects will only be absolutely known when they occur. Following the research, this will likely be a historical spike in brain tumor development and damage.
As you certainly know, the best way of protecting yourself from cellphone radiation is to simply not use it. When turning the phone off, it reduces the emission rate close to zero. This is not always an option for many, so there are a few vital methods of reducing the damage:
- Try and use the ‘speaker’ option on your cellphone when possible, holding it in your hand away from your head.
- Turn your phone off at night or when you are not using it.
- Place your phone in ‘airplane’ mode if you cannot turn it off entirely.
- Look into and heavily research radiation protection options for your phone. Be aware there are a number of fake items out there, so always look for a product brand with real research behind it.
On a grander scale, it is essential to let your friends and family know the dangers of cellphone use. It is by generating awareness and getting those you know upset that real change will occur within the industry.
To help us go ahead with the same spirit, a small contribution from your side will highly be appreciated.
