Look Up Your Cell Phone's Radiation Level

I have not yet posted about Cell Phone Radiation. It's one of those things, you know -- things that have the potential to be dangerous, that have a growing body of negative research.
Yet, practically speaking, can we really prevent radiation exposure in our modern world? After all, if we were to stop using wireless, cell phones and the like, we would still live in the midst of unseen exposure from our neighbor's gadgets.

Up until now, I have just let this issue unfold as I gather more information. This week, however, I received an email from EWG with something truly helpful. They have come out with a compilation of cell phone reviews which will show how much radiation your phone (or one you are looking at buying) emits. This is good news for me since I am in the market for a new cell phone and can now choose one that is rated "low radiation."

Here's what EWG has to say about this new resource:

"At EWG, we... undertook a 10-month research review to understand the risks -- and our research is receiving a lot of attention. Turns out, cell phones do emit radiation -- enough so that scientists are concerned about potential cancer risks. We'd like to believe that cell phone radiation is safe, but no one can say for sure. Much more research is crucial for scientists to reach a conclusion.

Make no mistake -- at EWG, we are still using our cell phones. But we believe that until scientists know much more about cell phone radiation, it's smart for consumers to buy phones with lower radiation emissions. As a result, we have put together the most comprehensive online consumer guide to cell phone radiation, rating more than 1,000 cell phones marketed in the U.S."

Are you curious about your cell phone's radiation level? Are you thinking of buying a new cell phone? Check out this great resource here.

For your health,

I borrowed your picture to post this info on my site, if that's ok! Thanks for the link!
