Cellular Phone Antenna - Is Your Health In Danger? 5 Steps To Take

Oct 18, 2007
There has been quite a bit of public debate that a cellular phone antenna can be hazardous to your health. We will take a look into the particulars and determine whether these rumors are grounded on any kind of truth.

Are Any Harmful Effects Present? If Yes, How To Avoid Them?

When automobiles were first created (despite the fact that the greatest potential speed was approximately 20-30 Km/hr) individuals were of the belief that anybody who would utilize them on a regular basis would develop terrible diseases and will result in death. Nowadays, the speed of an automobile passes 200 Km/hr and individuals who drive them (or travel around in them) are all right.

Likewise, it is true that a cellular phone antenna gives off a particular amount of electromagnetic waves; additionally they utilize radio signals to broadcast sound. Although it is reliable information that excessive exposure to either (or both) are certainly hurtful, the amount given off by a cellular phone antenna throughout short regular voice communications is not truly enough to create a long lasting harmful impact.

The alert of the health hazard had begun when the Stewart Report had showed that radio waves (from cellular phone antennas) do in truth go through the human body. The report especially cautioned about exposure to small children and suggested that they would be better off not using this device or, at any rate, very minimally because the radiation can damage and limit the formation of brain cells.

One can definitely not do without a cellular phone or the cellular phone antenna. Nevertheless, we can certainly take some steps to cut down the radiation effects to as minimal as possible. Here are a 5 different suggestions:

1. Children should truthfully not use cell phones unless in desperate emergencies. Whenever they have a need to talk over the phone, they had better from normal landlines.

2. Whenever you purchase a cell phone pay particular attention to the SAR (specific absorption rate) element - the smaller the SAR factor is the more beneficial it is for you because the radio emission is to the lowest degree possible.

3. When carrying around a mobile phone, keep the device as distant from your body as possible can. Transport it in pouches, handbags or the like so they can come in contact with the body solely during use.

4. Keep your voice communications as short as you can. This is a beneficial recommendation for the pocket also. Short conversations are not capable of emitting enough radiation to injure the body. If the conversation needs to be long, switch often between one ear and the other one so there is no continual exposure.

5. Cut short the use of the cell phone to a minimum as possible when the reception is bad, as the cellular phone antenna will attempt to boost its power and therefore the radiation to acquire the signals will increase as well.
