*Eight ways to reduce radiation with SMART PHONE*
Smart phones release low radio frequency energy ,
which is a form of non – ionising radiation . The
frequent exposure of the body to this forces it to
absorb the energy , which can lead to serious health
issues. In fact , the World Health Organisation has
labelled mobile phones radiation as possibly
carcinogenic to humans . Accordingly, Jumia Travel
gathers eight ways to reduce radiation when you use
your mobile phone .
Use the speakerphone
You may not use speaker phone in public. However ,
when you are at home, you can use your speaker
Don’ t put the mobile phone to your ear until the call
We all do it. We put the phone to our ears before it
connects . To be on a safe side , put your phone on
speaker until when the call is picked. You can then
put it in your ears after it connects.
Keep your cell phone far away from you
For those who sleep with their phones very close to
them when they are in a hotel, this is perhaps the
time to stop that habit. Keep your phones as far away
from you as possible . You do not want your phone
emitting dangerous energy into your body while
Avoid wearing Bluetooth always
Bluetooth wireless devices expose you to radiation .
However, the radiation is not as much as that of your
phone ; in any case , you should not wear Bluetooth
Keep your phone fully charged
Your phone is more likely to emit radiation when the
battery is low . This is because your phone is forcing
itself to connect to the network. It is easy for you to
find the network when the battery is fully charged .
As a caution , do not make calls with low battery
mobile phones .
Use the earplugs
Phones usually come with earphones . They are not
there for fun . Hence , rather than use your phone to
talk, you should use your earplugs .
Text instead of calling
Nowadays, you do not even need to use text
messages ; there are messaging platforms you can
use for chatting including WhatsApp , Facebook
Messenger , and the BBM.
Take a phone break
You can take a break from your phone. This does not
mean you should leave your phone at home. You
should just reduce usage .
