What can I do to minimise my radiation exposure?
Some basic principles:
- The further your body is away from the phone radiation, the less concentrated the radiation is. Even a centimetre of distance between you and the phone can makes a big difference. Don’t hold your phone directly against your head. Use text, speakerphone or an approved accessory such as an airtube headset, plug in handset or radiation deflecting phone case.
- Even when not on a call your phone is radiating. Don’t keep your phone in your pocket or anywhere else up against your body unless you are using a radiation shielded pouch.
- Radiation levels increase as reception decreases because your phone works harder to maintain connection. Use your phone only in a good reception area and don’t block signal with the back of your hand.
