Scientists can’t seem to make up their mind about cell phones. Do they produce radiation? Yes. Is the radiation they produce harmful to us? They aren’t sure. However, putting all their reports together, a pattern of tips and precautions becomes clear.

The most important thing you need to know right away is that your phone sometimes transmits a stronger (and therefore more hazardous) signal, while at other times it will transmit very weakly or not at all. It’s a good idea to know when that happens and when it doesn’t to avoid causing yourself harm. Parents should especially heed this advice, as children are most susceptible to radiation damage during their tender years of growth.

Here are some important tips to minimize exposure:

1. Keep some distance – hold your cell phone as far away from your body as possible.

2. Use a Wired or Bluetooth Headset

Use a headset (wired or Bluetooth) to keep the handset away from your head.

3. Do Not Press Handset Against Your Head

Do not press the handset against your head. Radio Frequency (RF) energy is inversely proportional to the square of the distance from the source — being very close greatly increases energy absorption.

4. Limit the Length of your Calls

Limit the length of mobile calls as you will be exposed to radiations for lesser amount of time if you don’t go on talking for long.

5. Use text (SMS) instead of voice wherever possible.

This pings the cell phone towers for seconds rather than minutes and minimizes your radiation exposure. This would allow you to keep the instrument away from your head and you will be saved from unnecessary radiations.

6. Put the cell phone on speaker mode

Use the speakerphone on your cell phone when you can have a public conversation, or hook your cell phone up to an earphone or headphones to keep it as far from you as possible while still talking on it.

7. Use Phone Only When You Have Good Signal Strength

Use your phone where reception is good. If the radio signal is weak, a mobile phone will increase its transmission power. Find a strong signal and avoid movement.

8. Avoid Mobile Phone with Metal Framed Glasses

Metal and water are good conductors of radio waves, so avoid using a mobile phone while wearing metal-framed glasses or having wet hair.

9. Wait for the Call to Connect before you Put it on Ear

18 Precautions to Reduce Cell Phone Radiation Exposure

Let the call connect before putting the handset to your ear or before you start speaking and listening – a mobile phone first makes the communication at higher power and then reduces power to an adequate level. More power is radiated during call connecting time.

10. Reduce Children’s Mobile Phone Usage

Reduce children’s mobile phone use, as a younger person will likely have a longer lifetime exposure to radiation from cell phones.
