Almost everybody nowadays has mobile phones, no matter for what purpose it is used for – talking, gaming, chatting or surfing. But the fact is that we do all these by compromising our health. There comes the necessity to prevent mobile phone radiation effects.
All cell phones emit electromagnetic radiation
- Body ache
- Memory loss
- Sleep disorder
- Concentration problems
- Neurological disorders
- High blood pressure
The following are the best ways to prevent mobile phone radiation effects:
1. Buy a Mobile Phone with Lowest Possible SAR Value
Specific Absorption Rate(SAR) is a measure of the amount of radiation absorbed by human body when exposed to an electromagnetic field. It is measured in terms of watts per kilogram (W/Kg).The SAR value greatly depends on the part of the body and the position at which the mobile phone is used. Normally, mobile phone manufacturers specify the SAR values for head and body.
Almost every country has their own SAR value limits that only mobile phones below a certain SAR value are allowed to sold. While the United States and India have
It is advised to buy a mobile phone with SAR value below 0.60 to be in the safe zone. Some of the models which stay within this limit are :
Samsung Galaxy Note
Samsung Galaxy S9
We can easily check the SAR value of a mobile phone by (i)
2. Keep Distance
Do not keep mobile phone in your pocket. It is advised to keep the mobile phone at least 30 centimeters away from the body, particularly when you sleep. When you have to keep it touching your body, make sure that you put your phone in airplane mode.

7. Avoid Calls When Signal Strength is Weak
It’s proved that cell phones increase transmission power when the signal strength is weak. We can easily find this by looking at the tower signal bars in mobile phones.
8. Short Calls
Try to keep your calls as short as possible. It is advisable not to make calls longer than 10 minutes. The shorter your call, the less will be your exposure to radiation.
