Consumer Reports (CR) has just issued what it calls “common-sense precautions when using your cell phone” which include the following:
“Specifically, CR recommends these steps:
- Try to keep the phone away from your head and body. That is particularly important when the cellular signal is weak — when your phone has only one bar, for example — because phones may increase their power then to compensate.
- Text or video call when possible.
- When speaking, use the speaker phone on your device or a hands-free headset.
- Don’t stow your phone in your pants or shirt pocket. Instead, carry it in a bag or use a belt clip.”
