Corded Landline Phones Are the Safest Phones

Use corded landlines!

Corded land line phones are the safest phones!

Cordless DECT phones constantly transmit electromagnetic radiation from the base and when you talk on it. Cell phones also transmit, even when you aren’t using them. The World Health Organization says this radiation may put the user at risk for brain cancer. They classified radiation as a 2b carcinogen, which is the same category as DDT, lead and engine exhaust. WHO Press release, May 2011

This radiation creates a toxic environment for your family and your neighbors as the radiation transmits for a long distance, and even through walls.

Its very important to protect children as their brains absorb more radiation than adults. The best advice is to unplug and remove cordless phones and use cell phones for emergencies only.

Here’s some basic cell phone safety tips:

- Do not wear or carry a cell phone “ON” your body
- Use a speakerphone or wired earpiece (hollow tube)
- Do not talk or text while driving or in a car
- Turn cell phones off in public places
- Children under 18 should not use cell or cordless phones
