Sharon Begley, a science columnist and editor, wrote a piece for The Daily Beast in which she makes 4 recommendations for mitigating the risk as follows:
- Use a headset, the speaker phone setting, or bluetooth (switch the bluetooth off between calls) during calls
- Follow the manufacturers warning on how far to keep a phone from your body
- Use texting, it keeps the phone far away from your brain and redces radiation exposure
- Buy your phones with attention to its specifric abosorption rate (SAR) – in the US the maximum allowed is 1.6
I wonder if I should throw away my bluetooth earpiece and buy a headset?
