5. Wait Until the Call Connects

You can lessen the amount of time that the cell phone is close to your head by waiting until the screen tells you that the connection has been made. You know how it is; sometimes your phone will continue to show you the “dialing” screen for 30 seconds. That’s 30 seconds of radiation that you can do without if you simply wait until the call is connected before you place the phone next to your ear.


6. Use a Hands Free Headset

Using a hands free device will greatly reduce the risk of radiation exposure to the brain. You can use a headset with a wire, just be sure that it has a ferrite bead installed. This is a hollow, semi-magnetic bead that is attached to the wire that will absorb any radiofrequency radiation that might travel through the wire. One study published in the International Journal of Pure and Applied Research in Engineering and Technology in 2014 found that ferrite beads work very effectively at absorbing radiation. You can also use a Bluetooth device that will allow you to use the phone but keep it away from the body.


7.  Don’t Use Your Phone in Remote Locations

When you are in a remote location where there is very little signal and you find yourself holding the phone up trying to find a signal, this is when your phone is perhaps at its most dangerous. Your phone will put out high amounts of radiation in an attempt to catch signals from cell towers. The journal Occupational and Environmental Medicine published a study in 2004 which recorded all calls from four different locations, including city, suburban, and rural areas. This study found that in rural areas, cell phones used their highest power levels 50 percent of the time. In cities, phones only used their highest power levels 22 percent of the time. If you must make a call, of course, you must, but if you can avoid it, wait until you have a better signal.


8. Use Airplane Mode

To limit your radiation exposure, whenever possible, simply turn your phone off or put it in airplane mode.
