To be safe, why not take some reasonable precautions to decrease your radiation exposure now while the long-term dangers of cell phone use are still unknown? Simple dos and don'ts can have a significant impact on how much cellphone radiation exposure increases or decreases. It's just a matter of adjusting a few fundamental behaviors. 

Hand-held phones and ionizing radiation, a more powerful form of radiation that can cause some types of cancer and other disorders that shorten life expectancy, have raised concerns about brain and central nervous system tumors. 


Use your phone wisely, and you'll live a long time: 


Do not listen to music on your phone while it is held to your ear. 


Because "wireless (Bluetooth) and wired headsets emit much less RF energy than cellphones, use the speakerphone or a headset instead. " As a rule of thumb, it's best to communicate via text message rather than phone call whenever possible. 


It's best to avoid using your phone while driving if you can. 


Unless in airplane mode, your phone uses more RF energy to maintain connections in order to prevent dropped calls when changing connections from one cell tower to the next. 


Keep your phone in your pocket when there are only one or two service bars visible. 


When the signal is weak, cellphones use more RF energy to communicate with cell towers. 


Keep your phone out of your bra or holster and away from your body. 


Take precautions to keep your mobile devices out of your pockets and away from your body by using a backpack, briefcase, purse, or other similar carry-alls.. Many things depend on a few extra inches. Also, put your phone in airplane mode if you're going to be holding it close to your body, as it doesn't emit RF energy when in this mode. 


Keep your phone out of the bed and away from the pillow. 


When you're sleeping, keep your phone at least an arm's length away from your body. You should also put your phone in airplane mode or sleep mode before going to bed.
