What steps can I take to reduce my exposure to radio
frequency energy from my wireless phone?
If there is a risk from these products - and at this point we
do not know that there is - it is probably very small. But
if you are concerned about avoiding even potential risks,
you can take a few simple steps to minimize your
exposure to radio frequency energy (RF). Since time is a
key factor in how much exposure a person receives,
reducing the amount of time spent using a wireless phone
will reduce RF exposure.
"If you must conduct extended conversations by wireless phone
every day, you could place more distance between your body
and the source of the RF, since the exposure level drops off
dramatically with distance. For example, you could use a
headset and carry the wireless phone away from your body or
use a wireless phone connected to a remote antenna.
Again, the scientific data do not demonstrate that wireless
phones are harmful. But if you are concerned about the RF
exposure from these products, you can use measures like
those described above to reduce your RF exposure from
wireless phone use.
What about children using wireless phones?
The scientific evidence does not show a danger to users of
wireless phones, including children and teenagers. If you
want to take steps to lower exposure to radio frequency
energy (RF), the measures described above would apply
to children and teenagers using wireless phones.
Reducing the time of wireless phone use and increasing
the distance between the user and the RF source will
reduce RF exposure.
