Where Do YOU Carry Your Phone?

Here’s the point:

Or, if you can’t do either of those things, then invest in SYB’s products that make it safer to carry your phone.

That’s the key message. EMF is complex, but protecting yourself doesn’t have to be. 

Now, if you want to understand why this is so important – and why these specific changes, in particular, are so important – read on. 

Why This is The Big Problem

You're not alone. Fortunately, you don't need an advanced degree to protect yourself.​

“Keep your cell phone away from your body.”

That’s a direct quote from Dr. Linda Birnbaum. And she’s not just any doctor — she’s a toxicologist and microbiologist, Dr Birnbaum is the former director of the National Institute for Environmental Health Sciences, as well as the US National Toxicology Program

Why is Dr. Birnbaum so concerned about this behavior?

Reason 1: Regulations do NOT protect us the way you might think.

We all want to believe, that when a product is made available for sale, it’s safe.

But that’s just not true.

And it’s NOT TRUE for cell phones.

There are technically regulations that supposedly control the amount of radiation cell phones can emit. But they are flawed and outdated.

Here are 3 examples of ways these regulations fail to protect you.

The Thermal Effect

Cell phone EMF regulations are based on something called the thermal effect.

This means, as long as a phone does not burn you when you use it, the government considers it to be safe.

Cell phone radiation regulations only protect you against immediate-term burns.

SAM is Big

Cell phone radiation is measured in units called SAR — or specific absorption rate.

They measure SAR with a dummy called the Specific Anthropomorphic Mannequin (or SAM).

Sam is built to simulate a 6’2″ 220-lb male.

97% of the world’s population is smaller than SAM – so 97% of the population will absorb more radiation than SAR tests reveal.

Multiple Sources

SAR testing tests how much radiation comes from your cell phone connection — the wireless connection to the cell tower.

BUT today’s phones have many more wireless connections. There’s WiFi, bluetooth, GPS, NFC (near field communication, used for services like ApplePay and GooglePay), and there’s the electric fields from its electrical components.

SAR testing doesn’t measure all the EMF coming from your phone.

Reason 2: Distance is Your Friend

There are many reasons that cell phones pose a serious health risk. But of course, most of us can’t give up our phones — it’s not a viable option in today’s world.

So instead, you should STOP carrying your phone in your pocket or bra.

Why does this matter so much?

Because the power of EMF radiation gets exponentially weaker with distance. 

Yes, exponentially. EMF weakens exponentially with distance.

So each additional inch – even millimeter – of distance that you put between yourself and the source of the EMF will have a big impact on your exposure. Literally every inch matters when it comes to your EMF exposure.

When you carry your phone in your pocket or bra you are getting the maximum possible dose of EMF from your phone.

Reason 3: The Cell Phone Companies Know This

It’s in the fine print in their manuals.

“Fine print warnings that manufacturers include in packaging with today’s smart phones, like the iPhone … advise that phones can exceed the FCC guidelines if kept in the pocket, but few people are aware of this.”

Dr. Devra Davis
Founder, The Environmental Health Trust

“Keeping your cellphone 10 inches away from your body, as compared to one-tenth of an inch, results in a 10,000-fold reduction in exposure. So, keep your phone away from your head and body. Store your phone in a purse or backpack.”

Dr. Joel Moskowitz
Director of the Center for Family and Community Health at the School of Public Health, University of California, Berkeley


“Carry iPhone at least 5mm away from your body to ensure exposure levels remain at or below the as-­tested levels.”


“Body-worn SAR testing has been carried out at a separation distance of 1.0 cm. To meet RF exposure guidelines during body-worn operation, the device should be positioned at least this distance away from the body.” 


“This device meets RF exposure guidelines when used either in the normal use position against the ear or when positioned at least 1.5 cm away from the body. When a carry case, belt clip or holder is used for body­worn operation, it should not contain metal and should position the product at least 1.5 cm away from your body.”

Reason 4: The Insurance Companies Also Know This

Major underwriters refuse to insure cell phone companies against future health claims.

Lloyd’s of London and its underwriter CFC Underwriting Limited exclude any liability coverage for claims, “directly or indirectly arising out of, resulting from or contributed to by electromagnetic fields, electromagnetic radiation, electromagnetism, radio waves or noise.”

If “The World’s Leading Insurance Marketplace” won’t take the risk, why would you?

Reason 5: Known Health Effects

EMF affects A LOT of systems.

We find negative health effects from EMF in basically every biological system we investigate.

And it’s not just in humans. We see it in animals, insects, fish — even plants and trees.

Here are some of the more prominent health risks linked to carrying your phone in your pocket.

male Infertility

The science here is incredibly strong. Carrying your phone in your pocket is killing your sperm.

Erectile Dysfunction

EMF induces several negative health effects – including testosterone levels, sleep disorders, oxidative stress, and more – that contribute to ED.

female infertility

Cell phone radiation exposure yields biological changes in women (including increasing alpha amylase, oxidative stress and nitrosative stress) that reduce the chance of conceiving.

Miscarriage risk

In one study from Kaiser Permanente, Dr. Di-Kun Li found that increased levels of EMF exposure led to a 272% greater chance of miscarriage.

Birth Defects

Multiple studies show that increased levels of in-utero exposure to EMF increase the liklehood of hyperactivity, learning disorders, behavioral problems – even asthma – later in childhood.

Colorecal cancer

It’s not just brain tumors – EMF exposure is linked to multiple types of tumors and cancer. Dr. De-Kun Li believes that the massively growing rates of colorectal cancer in people under age 55 is due to radiation from cell phones in pockets.

Breast Cancer

When you carry your phone in your bra, you are (obviously) carrying it directly against your breast. And, as mentioned previously, EMF exposure is linked to multiple types of tumor and cancer formation.

Endocrine Dysfunction

EMF – like from your cell phone – disrupts your endocrine system. When the endocrine system doesn’t operate well, you see a wide variety of negative outcomes – including weight gain, sleep disorders, migraines, infertility and more. 

Bone Density

Multiple studies demonstrate that exposure to EMF – like from a cell phone – impacts the density and strength of our bones.

The Solution

So now you know why you shouldn’t carry your cell phone in your pocket or bra–– even the cell phone companies say so!

So what can you do?

The best solution is to stop carrying your phone in your pocket or bra. Or put it in airplane mode.

This is a quick, free – and super effective solution. In fact, it’s the best possible solution.

But, many of us will still carry our phones in our pockets. It’s just so convenient. And sometimes we have no practical choice.

And that’s where good EMF protection products come in.

Which is why we’ve created a whole line of products specifically designed to make it safer to carry your phone.

SYB Sling Bag, EMF & 5G Protection Carrying Case

How it Works

SYB uses the time-tested Faraday Cage principle, first established by Michael Faraday in 1836, to bring you state-of-the-art EMF protection products.

All of our products are crafted from durable materials like plastics, fabrics, and vegan leather, each enhanced with a core layer of advanced EMF shielding.

And we test them. Our SYB shielding technologies go through rigorous laboratory testing to ensure they effectively protect you against harmful EMFs.

The result? Not only do you get superior protection against electromagnetic radiation, but our designs ensure that each product is stylish, sleek, and tailored to fit seamlessly into your lifestyle.

SYB’s SaferBody™ products are strategically designed to shield on one side—the side between your technology and your body. This targeted approach allows our technology to deflect harmful radiation away from you while ensuring that your device’s reception and battery life remain unaffected.

It’s crucial that the shielding is only on one side; fully encasing your device would hinder its functionality – it wouldn’t work. Our design ensures you get protection without compromising your device’s performance.
