Do's and Dont's of mobile phone use:
Do:
Only use your phone when necessary.

DONT:
Don't buy a phone with an internal aerial, you want the aerial as far away from your head as possible.



Do:
Keep the calls short.

DONT:
Don't use your phone when the reception is weak, the phone needs more power to communicate with the base station, and so the radiowave emissions are higher.



Do:
Carry the phone away from your body when it is on standby.

DONT:
Don't buy a phone with a high 'SAR' value, this means that it emits more radiation.



Do:
Buy a phone with a long 'talk time'. It is more efficient, with less powerful emissions.

DONT:
Don't buy protective gadgets unless they have been independently tested.
