Cell Phone and Mobile Tower Radiation How to Stay Safe

Mobile phones are an integral part of our daily life. We are living in the ocean of unseen waves. Cell phones need tower known as Base Transceiver Stations or BTS to operate. Both mobile phones and mobile tower radiation is a public health hazard. Electromagnetic radiation is a possible cause of cancer. Even you are probably reading this post on your mobile. We can not think of a day without mobile phones. But we need to keep in mind the potential health effects. Educated use of mobile phones may reduce possible health hazards. 5G is the latest technology with fear of more radiation problem. 5g radiation dangers are still not concluded. Although the level of radiation exposure from 5G antennas will be lower and 5G technology requires a lot of new base stations. How to Reduce Radiation exposure Use a hands-free device when possible. Limit the number and length of calls. Mobile phones should not be used more than 10 minutes continuously or more than 1 hour per day. When the network signal is poor, the device emits more energy to keep the connection with BTS. Using the phone in areas of good reception is preferred. So avoid using mobile phones in the elevator, train etc. Try not to place the mobile phone in the vicinity of testes. Keep the mobile phone away from bed while sleeping. Give preference to wired connection rather than Bluetooth. Use the land phone if possible. Use of mobile phones inside the hospital should be kept minimum. Children should not be allowed to use mobile phones for recreation purpose. A study showed that children’s routinized and frequent use of mobile devices is associated with emotional/behavioural problems. BTS Towers should not be installed in a residential area, near kindergarten or hospitals. If installed, a safe distance of minimum of 300 meters must be kept.
