    Dol cordless home phones cause cancer? Is it better to get ones

    with cords

    • Jonny

      I have read that cordless home phones actually emit much higher EMF’s than cells.

  • Joe

    I read a great book on the subject called Zapped! It really opened my eyes.

    One major thing I changed was to not use my mobile as an alarm clock! Some people sleep with them under the pillow… Every phone has a SAR rating, which measures the Radiation absorption into the brain – so my phone is luckily quite low, but smart phones are high, especially iphones, which actually exceed the safety limit if placed within 1.5 cm of your body.

    So women, don’t keep your phone tucked into your bra or chest pocket – and men – avoid the trouser pocket for obvious reasons!

      I’d also like to know the answer to this query…

    • sf_jeff

      I don’t know the answer to this, but I would bet that chronic long-term infections increase your risk of auto-immune disorders and possibly heart disease.
