Preventive measures

A lot of protective measures against the harmful radiation of cell phones can be found online. An example of these measure can be found in the video below.

Most of these preventive measures can be narrowed down to the following simple rules:

  • Limit the amount of calls to the strict minimum
  • When calling use a hands-free system (not a blue-tooth head-set, because this does not eliminate the cause)
  • Keep the mobile phone away from the body (radiation decreases exponential with increasing distance)
  • Children should not use cell phones

National health organizations from several European countries have advised their citizens to follow the above rules in order to protect their own health. The necessity of these precautions is still unclear but the national health organizations use the precautionary principle.
This principle states that if an action or policy has a suspected risk of causing harm to the public or to the environment, in the absence of scientific consensus that the action or policy is harmful, the burden of proof that it is not harmful falls on those taking action.

Some protective shielding casings and other devices that protect you from the harmful radiation  are also offered online, with doubtful proof of their effectiveness. One of these manufacturers is called GIA Cell Guard™ but a large variety of suppliers and products exist.
