Of course, the jury's still out on whether phones pose any kind of danger. Some studies say yes, others say no. But if there's even a possibility of danger, aren't we better safe than sorry?
I think so. Fortunately, there are three easy and effective ways to virtually eliminate the risks posed by cell-phone radiation:
- Use a corded headset.
- Use a Bluetooth headset.
- Use your phone's speakerphone.
Bluetooth headsets are okay, but they're expensive, dorky-looking, and one more thing to keep charged. As for speakerphones, in my experience they sound pretty crummy, especially if there's a lot of ambient noise (like in the car).
PC Magazine has more on the subject of avoiding cell-phone radiation, including summaries of the latest studies and a round-up of five phones that are "great for hands-free use."
What do you think? Is phone radiation a concern? If so, are you doing anything about it? Let us know your thoughts. Photo by procsilas.
