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 6 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.
