Cell phones emit electromagnetic fields, which in turn might be carcinogenic. That means every call you take on the go might be trying to kill you in a teeny-tiny way. Thus, an article at Reader’s Digest provides basic tips to keep you alive. Notably, keep your long calls reserved to landlines, or just start wearing a headset; anything that keeps the waves directly away from your head is a big improvement. Alternatively, you can have more conversations via texting, which seems to be the direction society is headed anyway.
The article warns that kids have thinner skulls and nervous systems that are still developing, so they may be at higher risk from the effects of cell phones. Thus, try to keep kids from talking on cell phones very much. You can view the original article here: http://www.rd.com/health/wellness/cell-phone-safety-tips/
