Safety advice for regular users of mobile phones and Wi-Fi devices – ideal for all parents.
Mobile phones, just how did we live without them? At about 80 million, there are now more mobiles than people in the UK. But since the Nineties, when their use became more widespread, there have been lots of nagging doubts about their safety and significant evidence now suggests that they pose a very serious threat indeed.
Using a mobile phone and using the computer at the office and at home adds up to hours of exposure each day to electro magnetic radiation (EMR). Many of us use a computer all day at work and then spend our leisure time surfing the internet at home. Radiation from mobiles, computers, laptops and other wire-less technology cannot be seen, heard or smelled yet is all around us.
The dangers of EMR can result in fatigue, poor concentration, tiredness and headaches, which are just a few of the less serious health concerns associated with the radiation omitted from such devices. Other possible side effects include nausea, blurred vision, short term memory loss, muscle weakness and an impaired immune system. In addition, some scientists are concerned that such radiation may cause cancer, brain tumours and early senility.
Scientific and medical research shows that children are particularly vulnerable to the effects as their immune systems are not yet properly developed and their lifetime of exposure to wire free technology and radiation will be longer. You may be concerned about future effects on your children due to their regular use of mobiles and computers. Pregnant women may also be more vulnerable.
But we need our mobile phones and computers so what is the answer? Here are some practical things that you can do and encourage your family to do too, plus you may like to consider a radiation protector for you and your family to help give peace of mind.
Top Tips to help you Stay Healthy on Your Mobile Phone
1. Keep your mobile phone a few inches away from your ear and kink it slightly
2. Don’t keep your mobile phone in your pocket, which is close to vulnerable reproductive organs
3. Keep your mobile phone calls short – avoid using it for long conversations and chats – move the phone over to your other ear after 5 mins of talking
4. Use a landline if possible
5. Try to use your phone where there is good reception as this requires less power
6. Send a text instead of making a short phone call
7. Choose cable connections rather than Wi-Fi internet
8. Choose a cordless phone with the lowest radiation from www.lowradiation.co.uk
9. Don’t leave a mobile phone switched on beside your bed at night
10. Use a radiation protector on your mobile phone such as a Phoneshield or Wi-Fi Shield on your lap top or computer

What is the Phoneshield product?
Scientifically proven, the Phoneshield product makes it really easy for you to take some precautionary action for yourself and your family against the dangers of EMR. The quartz crystal technology aids to diffuse and eliminate some of the dangerous effects of EMR. The PhoneShield works by emitting its own low frequency signal, which intercepts and cancels the phone’s pulsed frequency pattern alleviating its harmful effect on the brain and the body’s biological system.
The Phoneshield has a strong adhesive pad and simply attaches to the back of your mobile phone and they are also compatible with any type or model of mobile, I phone or blackberry device and has absolutely no affect on the transmission or signal of your devices.
The Quartz Wi-fi shield is also available, a small, round device that is attached to the back of your computer or laptop monitorand works in exactly the same way as the Phoneshield, helping you and your family stay healthy and to mitigate our everyday exposure. These tiny shields are highly effective yet are quick and easy to fit, require no technical expertise and are very affordable.
For more information on scientific reports from international scientists, EMR experts and public health officials on this subject, please visit the website at www.phoneshield.co.uk. The Bio Initiative Report is based on 1500 individual studies which conclude unequivocally that there is sound evidence of harmful biological effects which can damage the body’s immune system and lower resistance to long term serious illness.
Developed and manufactured in the UK, the Phoneshield product is available at £12.50 and the Wi-fi product costs £14.99 both available on line from www.phoneshield.co.uk, where you can also find lots more useful information and research on this subject matter.
