PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) – Dr. Devra Davis of the Environmental Health Trust joined Chris Moore to discuss the dangers of cell phone radiation.
Most people do not know iPhone’s come with a warning to carry the device at least 10mm away from the body.
Dr. Davis explained using a cell phone “hands-free” is the best way to prevent overexposure to harmful levels of radio frequency energy. Infants and young children are especially sensitive to cell phones, and should not be in close proximity to the devices.
Cell phone users should also pay close attention to low batteries on their device.
“When your phone has few bars, it’s working harder and it will run out of juice sooner,. Your battery runs down because the phone is working harder and it is putting more radiation out to get more energy, that radiation is going directly to you,” said Davis.
If you own an iPhone and want to find out about the radiation warning: Go to Settings; click on “General;” click on “About;” click on “Legal;” then click on “RF.”
