The old saying ‘better safe than sorry’ has never been more important.
According to a recent report published by the BioInitiative Working Group using a smart phone increases your risk of getting a brain tumor.
It’s time to be more switched on by switching the way you use your phone.
These are my top tips to reduce radiation exposure:
- Never hold your phone against your head
- Use it on loud speak or with ear phones
- Never let your kids use your phone as a toy
- Limit exposure by limiting Wi-Fi in vehicles
- Never sleep with your phone under your pillow
- Keep all smart devices out of bedrooms
- Never charge your phone near your bed
- All Wi-Fi technology should be used less and blue Ethernet cables more
- Never carry your phone in your top pocket, it could affect your heart
- Wise up, learn a bit more about this modern technology and keep safe
And guys, it’s probably not a good idea to carry your phone in the pocket of your jeans. That’s if you plan on having kids sometime in the future. Who knows what it’s doing to your sperm or your ability to produce a healthy baby.
I love my phone and wouldn’t do away with it but I take prevention seriously. Mainly because death by brain tumour or cancer is worth preventing.
A little bit of prevention can go a long way and save you lots of misery and heartache. That’s why it pays to think twice before using your phone in your car or truck, on a train or tram, in a lift or aeroplane because the radiation is multiplied in metal surroundings.
Our next generation is at risk of business and governments not considering the cost to our future generations sort of like an ostrich bias, sticking your head in the sand so you don’t have to look at the problem.
It’s a pity they don’t look at prevention as a long term investment.
The NBN roll-out of fibre is a good investment, it’s also good to get connected if you can.
We are not told Wi-Fi is the snake in the grass. It will bite you and it will hurt. Would you let your kids play in the grass if you knew a snake was living there. Wi-Fi is not quite the same as a snake because it takes many bites before the danger is exposed or the damage done. But like snakes, Wi-Fi is best kept a long way away from your precious ones and your precious parts, like your brain, your heart and your reproductive system.
Being wiser is a wise move. Don’t let being connected overtake common sense. It doesn’t matter how much money you make if you’re not alive or your kids are not alive to benefit from your hard work.
