We often feel lost without our cell phones…but what if ditching our phone could have tremendous benefits to our long-term health? As it turns out, your phone may be literally killing you.
In particular, cell phones transmit non-ionizing radiation that can result in decreased bone mineral density and much, much worse, including a wide range of cancers.
In response to growing concerns, the FCC has created guidelines designed to measure radiation given off by cell phones using the Specific Absportion Rate (SAR). The legal maximum is 1.6 watts per kg body mass, but some phones come awfully close, as you can see:
- Motorola Droid Maxx – SAR 1.54
- Motorola Droid Ultra – SAR 1.54
- Motorola Moto E – SAR 1.5
- Alcatel One Touch Evolve – SAR 1.49
- Huawei Vitria – SAR 1.49
- Kyocera Hydro Edge – SAR 1.48
- Kyocera Kona – SAR 1.45
- Kyocera Hydro XTRM – SAR 1.44
- BlackBerry Z10 – SAR 1.42
- BlackBerry Z30 – SAR 1.41
- ZTE Source – SAR 1.41
- ZTE Warp 4G – SAR 1.41

The best protection against this radiation is to simply get rid of your cell phone, but absent that step, we recommend the following:
- Reduce your usage. Turn off your phone when you are not using it; don’t just flick it to the sleep mode where it is still sending off carcinogenic energies.
- Only make phone calls with good reception. The weaker the connection is, the more power your phone is using, thus the dangerous waves can penetrate your body even more deeply.
- Don’t carry your phone on your body. Avoid putting it in your pocket, belt clip, or your bra like the cancer-ridden woman in the above study. Just keep it away from wherever you don’t want cancer to grow. The fewer layers between you and your phone, the more radiation is being shot into your body.
- Keep your phone six inches from your body when it is in use. This perimeter is the most dangerous zone from radiation. Stay away.
- Use a shielded headset or speakers.
