Healthy Living Tip #39: Keep a Safe Distance

Every inch matters when it comes to safely using your devices. EMF-emitting technology like phones and laptops can emit significant amounts of radiation at levels with the potential to cause negative health effects including: low fertility, toasted skin syndrome, mild burns and cancer.

This is why maximizing your distance from EMF-emitting technology is crucial. While distance does not reduce the amount of radiation, it does significantly reduce your exposure to it.

Putting inches between your devices and your body will reduce health risks. Even Apple states in the manual not to put your phone in your pocket as a safety precaution.

Do The Math, Inches Matter

Several websites including Healthy Building talk about what are the safe distances between your body and technology. Here is a list of several things to consider:

  • At night, if you use your phone for an alarm clock, keep it several feet from your body. It is even better if you turn your phone off and use a traditional alarm clock.
  • Apple states in the manual that while talking on your phone to keep the phone at least 15mm away from your head, the farther away the better. Use the speaker function or wired headphones instead.
  • Keeping a safe range from your laptop is ideal as well. Radiation is significantly less when it is 2-3 inches from your body says Dr. Mercola.
  • Using wired headsets are much safer than wireless headsets that are placed directly on the skin.

Minimizing Usage

While distance does matter. It is also important to minimize the use of technology. Every inch does matter, but sometimes it’s unavoidable.

To minimize your risk of health issues you can do one of two things: use the devices less and purchase a device that can shield your body.

Final Thoughts

While technology does make life easier, it is not always safer. Every inch matters and can help protect you and our loved ones from harmful health risks.
