How To Avoid The Harmful Effects Of Mobile Phones?
The California Department of Public Health has issued a guideline to avoid radio frequency energy emitted from mobile phones.
Although scientists do not agree on the harms of using a mobile phone, research has indicated that long-term use and excessive use of mobile phones are harmful to health.
“Excessive use of mobile phones can be detrimental to health,” said Dr. Karen Smith, director of public health in California. Both children and adults can avoid the harmful effects of mobile phones if they do not keep the phone in their pocket and keep their mobile away from bed at night.
According to the California Department of Public Health, mobile phones emit radio frequency energy when the mobile phone receives a signal from a cell tower or sends a mobile signal. In addition, this radio frequency is harmful to human health.
