5 Ways To Keep Your Cell Phone From Killing You
2:30 pm, February 29th | by
Yesterday, we took a look at all
the ways your cell phone is negatively affecting your body. Needless to say, it left us feeling rather anxious, leading to a binge of “how to stop cell phone radiation” Google searches and purchases of anti-radiation phone cases. We thought we’d share our research.
1.Don't Use Your Phone When You Have Bad Service
The worse your reception is,
the more radiation. Who knew?! When you only have one bar, the phone has to do more work to communicate with the cell tower, therefore beaming more death rays into your head. Try to talk when you've got good service.
2.Snap On A Pong Case
Pong's variety of cases -- available for iPhone, BlackBerry, and Android -- claim to curb radiation. Do they work? Well, they're FCC certified, and experts say they do. They retail for around $50.
3.Plug In A Pop Phone
Pop Phones plug into your device just like a pair of headphones. They have a vintage phone look, and allow you to leave your phone on the table while you chat. We have seen people walking down the streets of New York with these (It's a fashion statement? Sort of?), but they're kind of big and clunky to walk around with. Not to mention, you do look a little ridiculous talking on a huge phone outside. But still, a great item for your home -- and less than $30! They also come in cute colors -- I love my red one.
4.Get A Samsung
The three phones with the lowest ranking radiation levels are Samsung-made.
They include the Samsung Replenish, the Samsung Acclaim and the Samsung Infuse 4G.
5.Errr...Get A Bluetooth Headset
Last, but not not least: bluetooth headsets. What to say about them? Will you risk looking like an Ari Gold Hollywood agent wannabe? Yes. Will people think you're a radical evangelist talking to yourself? Quite likely! But will you avoid getting brain tumors? You just might.
