Dr. Oz recommends limiting your cell phone usage and using a regular telephone line if possible. If you can’t avoid using a cell phone, try to keep the phone away from your ear by using the speakerphone function. He is not sure if using a Bluetooth headset would be any safer as these too could possibly be emitting some frequency.
Surprisingly, Oprah said that she did not own a cell phone.
Something that wasn’t discussed on the show was the recent news of cell phones causing the bees to die off. The Huffington Post wrote, “….radiation given off by mobile phones and other hi-tech gadgets is a possible answer to one of the more bizarre mysteries ever to happen in the natural world – the abrupt disappearance of the bees that pollinate crops.”
5 Steps to Staying Safe
1. Put it on speaker. Because your exposure drops exponentially as you move the phone away from your head, you don’t have to keep the phone very far away to reduce your exposure by 1,000 to 10,000 times.
2. Go wired. In crowded, noisy areas, use a wired headset instead. If you must use a wireless headset, turn it off when you’re not using it.
3. Store it. Unless you’re on it, stow the phone in your purse or bag. If you keep it on your waist, keep it turned off. Studies have shown that keeping a cell phone in your pocket can decrease sperm count.
4. Save it for a strong signal. When reception is bad (such as in a rural areas or when you’re driving) use your phone for emergencies only. The weaker the signal, the more the radio frequency has to boost itself to get connected, increasing your exposure.
5. Protect the kids. Do not let children use cell phones next to their heads. For older kids, it shouldn’t take much encouragement
