How to reduce everyday radiation exposure?
‘Resolution of the problem of global electromagnetic pollution of the environment will require a concerted international effort. However, as individuals we have some control over the electromagnetic devices that we use every day.’
- Dr. Robert Becker
No matter where you live or what you do, it is likely that you’re in close contact with EMR-emitting technology for most of the day. If you have cordless phone at home, sleep on electric blanket, or use mobile phone as alarm, you are exposed as you sleep. If you use computer, a mobile phone in your job, you are exposed at your work.
These technologies have brought us huge benefits, allow us to complete our tasks and work effectively and automatically. It also changes the nature of living and working environments. We know it affects our bodies and minds, especially pregnant woman and children because their cells are rapidly growing and dividing, and their brains are still developing.
International authorities and health experts are recommend the ‘precautionary approach’ of avoiding unnecessary exposure where possible.
So practically how do we reduce our everyday radiation exposure and enjoy the huge benefit and its convenience? Thankfully there are some very simple adjustments we can make to significantly reduce our exposure without dramatic changes to our lifestyle.

Turn on airplane mode which turns off the cellular and wireless signals. Especially when your children need to use the mobile or tablet, turn on Airplane mode for them. Any time you don’t need your device to be on (especially if you are carrying it next to your body), turn it to airplane mode (this will also save battery life).
3. LIMIT TIME
Limit your time of using mobile phone and other devices that emitting radiation. Use landline for long phone calls.
Shielding is one of most safe, effective and convenient way to reduce everyday radiation exposure. Especially at the highest risk time of pregnancy, early childhood and even when try to conceive.
