Never keep Mobile phone near your heart (left pocket), never allow children below 10 years and pregnant women to use Mobile phones. Excessive use of mobile can finish once life particularly when the one use the same while driving, while walking and talking on road and excessive use of mobile without any protective device is more harmful than smoking and chewing of tobacco. Do not use it in a confined space such as an elevator, basement, underground station, caravan, etc. In these situations the strength of the signal both sending and receiving is much greater thus the radiation is much more intense. Do not use the phone while you are in a moving vehicle, including the train, bus, etc, since its antenna will be constantly scanning for contact using the maximum signal strength, and the radiation from both incoming and outgoing signal will be intensified. Do not keep a mobile phone beside the bed at night switched on, because even when on stand-by it is in contact with the nearest phone ...more

3 -
Those under 15 should not use a mobile phone at all because they are still growing. With their lighter body weight the radiation is more damaging, especially to the brain, weakening the Blood-Brain Barrier (BBB), and to the reproductive organs/ovaries, etc. . 4 - Any elderly person should be discouraged from using a mobile phone, as well as anyone in a weakened state (the radiation will weaken their organism further), and any pregnant woman. Microwave radiation is readily absorbed by the amniotic fluid in which the emb ...more
