Most of us know about EMF radiation from cell phones but happily chat on our cordless phone for hours mistakenly believing that we are perfectly safe. But beware – cordless phones can be more of a health risk than cell phones. Maybe as high as 100%. Wow!
EMF radiation from a cordless phone charger/base stations, especially new models (DECT), even when you are two meters away from the base station is 50 times higher than Scientists consider to be a safe level.
To give it a perspective – EMF Emissions from a cordless phone charger/base station can be twice as strong as being 100metres from a mobile cell mast. And we look at them and shudder! Yet effectively we happily have a small mobile phone mast sitting in our own house or workplace.
The charger, and the hand set when not in its cradle, is emitting EMF radiation at full strength 24/7. It does not respect walls so wanders around a building unimpeded. And having a cordless phone beside the bed is a definite no-no. You are lying in a field of radiation.
It has been scientifically proven that EMF radiation from a cordless phone is harmful to the body. Research in Sweden by Lennart Hardell, Michael Carlbery and Kjell Hansson Mild who believe cordless phones may be a greater health risk, from brain tumors etc, than mobile phones.
If you can’t live without a cordless phone choose 900 MHz cordless phone instead of higher frequency phones. Most 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz phones base stations constantly broadcast but the majority of 900 MHz phones don’t. Also the 900 MHz cordless phones use an analogue signal. The 2.4 GHz and the 5.8 GHz phones use more biologically damaging pulsed digital signals.
