Is your cell phone frying you?

Scientists won’t know if cell phones are bad for us until we’ve been using them for longer and more studies are done.

Scientists won’t know if cell phones are bad for us until we’ve been using them for longer and more studies are done. But they do know two things: you do get radiation from your phone, and it does appear to have physiological effects.

Take action:
Reduce your exposure to cell phone radiation: spend less time talking on your cell; make more calls from your land line; send text messages instead of making calls; make a serious decision to never drive and talk – apart from any possible radiation worries, the biggest proven danger for cell phone users is a car accident; reduce the distance between yourself and your cell phone – use a headset and carry the wireless phone away from your body or use a wireless phone connected to a remote antenna; and use the other ear sometimes!
