Clients often ask me, “What’s the first thing I can do to lower my EMF exposure?”

It’s a great question.

Almost everyone I know uses a cell phone, myself included. What most people don’t realize unless they have a good RF meter, is how high the emissions from a cell phone are.

A client’s cell phone is one of the first things we measure during an EMF inspection and it’s often the highest source of wireless radiation in a home.

Most people don’t realize this since EMF radiation is silent, odorless and invisible – unless you have a meter and know how to use it.

So what do we do?

Avoid holding the phone to your head during a call. Text, or use speakerphone or use my favorite accessory, an airtube headset for making calls.

Another pro tip? Keep your phone out of your pocket. Ideally, keep it at least 10 feet away from your body when it is on. Distance is your friend when it comes to EMF exposure.

A landline (with a corded, not cordless phone) is always the best choice for phone calls from an EMF perspective, but landlines are rare these days.

These tips will go a long way to reduce your daily exposure to wireless radiation, especially if you spend a lot of time on the phone.
