Amid a growing body of studies indicating that cell phones may cause health hazards to adults and children there are ways to protect yourself from electromagnetic fields (EMFs) emanating from cell phones and other electronic devices.
Dr. George Carlos, who led the largest study on the impacts of cell phones on health, confirmed that "the rate of brain tumors was higher (50% higher) among cell phone users than non-cell phone users." Brain cancer has increased by 25% since 1973.
There are a growing number of EMF protection devices now available. An air tube headset is a good place to start. This is because the regular hands-free headset has been shown to increase EMF exposure to the user's head by as much as three and a half times!
The air tube headset has the advantage of keeping harmful radiation away from your head and brain and is affordable for adults and children at the price of ($34.95). .
This is welcome news since we are exposed to one trillion times more electromagnetic radiation than our great grandparents were. There are now an estimated 2.5 billion cell phones being used around the world!
The National Radiological Protection Board (NRPB), a UK Based independent research organization, advised parents not to let children under the age of eight use cell phones. Studies have indicated that children tend to be more susceptible. The Neuro Diagnostic Research Institute discovered that a call lasting just two minutes could alter the natural electrical activity of a child's brain for up to an hour afterwards.
Other actions that you can take to protect yourself and your family include:
-- Limiting the use of cell phones (and cordless phones which may emit high levels of EMF); and
-- Keep your cell phone in your purse or briefcase -- do not wear it on your body when not in use.
