We are on our phone’s ALL the time. My phone has my entire life on it, so of course I am constantly checking it📲 But this can’t be good for our health right? Although research is still evolving around this, it’s certainly undebatable that we are now exposed to a new kind of radiation ALL the time. California recently issued cell phone radiation warnings which was informative but a bit scary! ⠀⠀⠀ 🌟Here are some things you can do to reduce the amount of radiation you’re exposed to and when you’re at greatest risk.
1️⃣ Increase the distance between your cellphone and your bodyby using the speakerphone or a headset (Bluetooth headsets have weaker EMFs). Opt to send text messages instead of calling.
2️⃣ If you're streaming or downloading files with your phone, try to keep it away from your head and body.
3️⃣ Do not carry it in your pocket or directly on your body unless the phone is off. This is definitely something I struggle with especially when I am working in the hospital but it’s good practice to leave your phone in your locker. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀ 4️⃣ Do not to sleep with your cellphone in your bed or near your head. I keep mine on a nightstand, helps me sleep through the night too. ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🌟So when are you at highest risk for radiation?
1️⃣ At the start of a call, when the phone is trying to connect to a cell tower
2️⃣ When a cellphoneonly has one or two bar. The phone is constantly searching for a better connection therefore increasing frequency.
3️⃣ When in a moving car, bus or train (as the phone switches from one tower to another). Try keeping your phone in airplane mode during this time.
4️⃣ When you are streaming music or movies or downloading or sending large files⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀🖤 Wearing: such a cute and festive oversized sweater.
