Watch Out for Weak Cellphone Reception

phoneWhen your cell phone is working in an area with weak reception it will compensate by transmitting more power, and therefore, more radiation. Doctors worry that the more radiation that gets absorbed into your body, the greater your risk for developing brain cancer or other tumors. Try to cut back your cell phone use, especially in areas of weak reception.[1]

Keep phone calls short and use speakerphone to keep your phone away from your body. Avoid storing your cell phone close to you (like in your pocket) and try to use alternate forms of communication (like text or email) whenever possible.
