5 Easy Ways to Reduce Your Cell Phone Exposure

For several years, doctors and activists have been raising concerns about the possible connection between cell phones and brain cancer. And recent research conclusively determined that a cell phone's electromagnetic field can indeed cause changes in brain activity.

Time Magazine lists five simple ways to reduce your exposure to cell phone radiation:

Use a wired headset

This keeps the antenna far away from your skull.

Get used to texting

Texting also keeps the handset away from your brain, reducing the radiation risk.

Don’t use your cell phone as an alarm clock

If you use your phone as your wake-up call, you'll likely need to keep it close to your head; there's still radiation being emitted even when it's not taking calls.

Don’t carry your phone in your pocket

There's preliminary research to indicate that men who carry a phone in their pocket all day could be putting their fertility at risk, and women who carry their phones in their bra could be increasing their risk of breast cancer.

Use a radiation-blocking case

These can reduce cell phone radiation by two-thirds.
