Cell phone turning your brain to mush?

by on
in Office Technology

The jury is still out on whether cell phone radiation has a negative effect on our brains. Regardless, most health researchers recommend that you hold a cell phone an inch or two from your ear.

Their top tip? Put your cell phone on speaker mode or use a wired headset whenever possible, to diminish the radiation.

Other tips:

√ Take your call outside if you’re in a noisy venue, rather than pushing the phone closer to your ear. Every millimeter counts.

√ Don’t put your phone in your pocket. Carry it in a purse or briefcase or get a nonmetallic belt clip that orients it away from your body.

√ Wait until after your call has been connected to put your cellphone next to your ear. Many cellphones emit the most radiation when they initially establish contact with the cell tower.

√ Tilt the phone away from your ear when you are talking; bring it in close when you are listening.

√ Sit tight while talking. Your cell phone emits multiple bursts of radiation when it’s moving, in order to establish contact with different towers.

√ Text instead of talking.
