How can one reduce the levels of radiation exposure while using mobile phones?

The easiest way to reduce the level of radiation exposure is by holding the phone away from the body!


In general, the guidelines issued by the TNUDA center and the Ministry of Health are based on the precautionary principle, while maintaining a balance between the technological needs of the society in Israel and the degree of caution required to safeguard health.  The main recommendations are:

  • Using a loudspeaker/personal hands-free accessory or earphones (not wireless) or any other device that keeps phone away from the body while talking.

  • Restricting talking in locations where reception is weak (where base station are relatively scarce or reception is screened off, as in elevators or trains).
