Sleeping with your Smartphone can effect brain activity, and potentially increase the risk of neurological diseases or cancers.
Palo, Alto, CA (PRWEB) October 12, 2016
Samsung has issued a global recall of the Galaxy Note 7 this week, following a series of reports that phones were overheating, burning, and even exploding.
RF Safe, the world's premier leader of information and products for reducing exposure to cell phone radiation responds to the recall by reminding wireless users to never sleep with a device under your pillow. 44% of cell owners have slept with their phone next to their bed because they wanted to make sure they didn’t miss any calls, text messages, or other updates during the night, according to the Pew Internet Project.
"Sleeping with your Smartphone can effect brain activity, and potentially increase the risk of neurological diseases or cancers," warns John Coates, Founder of Rf Safe, "Rf Safe cell phone accessories are designed to reduce radiation exposure under normal usage conditions, sleeping with a cell phone under a pillow has become very common, but shouldn't be accepted as normal even if it does have an alarm clock."
Joel Moskowitz, PhD, director of the Center for Family and Community Health at UC Berkeley’s School of Public Health has suggested that it is best not to let kids sleep with their phones under their pillows and advises against carrying cell phones in front pockets, due to possible radiation exposure to the reproductive system.
RF Safe offers several well-proven ways to shield from cell phone radiation emissions while snoozing.
The Rf Safe Coorperation's Smartphone Flip Case Shield provides a deflective barrier between vital organs and excessive microwave radiation when the device is kept under a pillow, or near the body when sleeping.
Coates also suggests, "If you or your children are using a smartphone at night for its clock or alarm features, consider putting it in “airplane mode” which suspends the phone’s transmission functions, and eliminates microwave radiation exposure while asleep."
Cell phone users should also take precaution when using a Smartphone to play music, according to Coates. The RF Safe AirTube Headset, with patented sound chamber air-tube technology, prevents the brain from getting exposed to excessive microwave radiation.
