The Food and Drug Administration says the research “does not allow us to conclude that mobile phones are absolutely safe, or that they are unsafe.”
Those who cannot avoid using cell phones may consider the advice offered by the Environmental Working Group to minimize their exposure to radiation:
Use a low-level radiation cell phone. Check out www.ewg.org for the best 10 cell phones that emit low-level radiation.
Use a headset or speaker.
Listen more and talk less. Cell phones emit radiation when you talk or text, but not when you are receiving signals or messages.
Hold your cell phone away from your body.
Text more and talk less.
Stop trying to communicate when the signal is poor. Poor signals mean your cell phone needs to send stronger signals (higher level radiation) to the tower.
Don’t allow your children to use or play with your cell phones. Children’s brains absorb twice as much radiation as adults.
Don’t use the “radiation shield.” Radiation shields such as antenna caps or keypad covers reduce the connection quality and force the machine to emit higher radiation to deliver a stronger signal.
ANA is a 501(c)(3) organization serving a membership of close to 5,000 acoustic neuroma patients, family members and health care professionals providing information regarding all treatment options. An acoustic neuroma, sometimes termed a vestibular schwannoma, is a slow-growing benign brain tumor on the eighth cranial nerve, which leads from the brain to the inner ear. The most common forms of treatment are microsurgery, radiosurgery or “watch and wait.” Typical symptoms include hearing loss, balance issues, tinnitus and a feeling of fullness in the ear.
