It’s no secret that the world we live in is filled with radio waves and that they are flying all around us…and even through us. Carrying a cellphone in your pocket at all times which is sending and receiving those radio waves…isn’t really a good thing and the California Department of Health is letting the world know that.
Keeping your phone on you or next to you at all times is actually increasing your risks for cancer, reproductive issues and even damaging your mental health.
Research has shown that keeping your phone within an arms distance away while you sleep actually exposes you to radiation. This exposure comes from your cell phone transmitting low frequency radio signals.
The evidence mounting against the phones will make you a little bit more unsure about keeping your phone under your pillow all night long or in your pocket all day. The California Department of Health is warning people that these radio frequencies are not only dangerous for you, but it actually can hurt your kids as well.
Cellphone exposure has been linked with tumors growing on ears and in the brain. But now, they are more concerned with the fact that children’s brains are a lot more susceptible to the radiation than adults.
The new guidelines sent out by the California Department of Health state that you should keep your phone out of your pockets and instead keep them in a bag. At night, you shouldn’t keep them on nightstands or under pillows, but instead place them across the room.
You should be especially cautious of your phone when you have two or fewer bars or when you are downloading or streaming large files.
