The debate continues as to whether mobile phones cause brain tumors: the results of a Swedish study that ten years of mobile use does raise the risk of acoustic neuroma (a benign tumor of the auditory nerve). If you’re worried, here are steps to take:
· Use a hands – free earpiece or headset
· A shield that covers the whole phone can work, though some will impair the phone’s effectiveness
· Absorbing buttons that attach to the outside of your phone can absorb radiation, but only by 20 percent or so
· Different phone models can vary in radiation output by up to 80 percent – look for a low “SAR” level.
