Cell phones and smart phones have revolutionized the way communicate, and in a grander sense, the way we live. We can’t seem to put them down. Currently over 2 billion people own a cell phone, and that number is growing.
With the rise of the dependence on cell phones, what do we really know about this relatively new technology? We hold it to our heads, and stare at it constantly. What about the radiation coming from these devices? It’s safe to say limiting the amount of radiation we are receiving from them is a great idea.
Here are some information and tips to reduce exposure to the radiation we receive from our cell phones.
Cell phones emit radio frequency (RF) energy, which may have an effect on our health. RF energy is a form of electromagnetic radiation which is also used by TV and radio transmitters as well as microwaves. While it’s not as damaging as other forms of radiation like X-rays, it could still pose a health risk.
