Precautionary Principle

Despite the precautions built into existing safety standards and the low everyday exposures from modern smartphones we understand that some people want to take their own steps to reduce exposure even further.

Therefore we support independent health authorities - such as the WHO and FCC - who advise people that are worried to use 'hands-free' devices which keep cell phones away from the head and body during calls and to limit the number and length of calls.

However, the FCC has made clear that by providing these tips it does not endorse the need for reducing RF exposure: Accordingly, some parties recommend taking measures to further reduce exposure to RF energy. The FCC does not endorse the need for these practices, but provides information on some simple steps that you can take to reduce your exposure to RF energy from cell phones. For example, wireless devices only emit RF energy when you are using them and, the closer the device is to you, the more energy you will absorb.

We do not support the use of so called 'shielding devices' because they are often not properly tested and in many cases can increase exposure.
