More Happiness and Health With a Little Distance With The Best Cellphone Crossbody
There's no doubt about it. People love, love, love their cell phones and Smartphones. The average American checks their device 150 times a day! Collectively, that's over 8 BILLION checks a day. I get it—it's hard to imagine not being able to make a restaurant reservation while exercising, right? What many don't realize is that the wireless signal that miraculously connects our most constant companions to the universe is always producing something generally called Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) in the form of wireless RF Radiation. Scientists refer to this more specifically as non-ionizing radiation.
And, What's So Wrong With That?
Stay with me now--here's the important part: As radiation gets stronger, it produces heat in human tissue. Over long exposure, that heat can cause damage. That's what SAR is all about. But, there are other EMF, particularly RF (radio frequency) concerns too.
There have been tons of studies over the years trying to determine how bad the smartphone "information-carrying radio waves," a type of EMF, really is for us. The cellular industry says wireless is perfectly safe. Meanwhile, The World Health Organization says it's a possible cause of cancer. And now we have WiFi RF radiation to contend with . . .
That's Why I Say Keep Your Distance Please
The more I've learned about this, the more convinced I am that it's a good idea to limit your exposure to RF as much as you can - In the same way, you probably wouldn't put your head up next to your microwave for extended periods of time.
I'm not saying to ditch your smartphone. Just be smart about it. You can't see the energy. However, if you watch my videos, you'll see I use meters that will help you visualize it. It's pretty cool to watch as the numbers measuring the peaks of the "waves" of energy get less and less as I get further and further away from the phone. I choose the healthy option of avoiding RF radiation as much as I can. With this- a lovely cellphone crossbody case!
Here's a simple way to do just that: Cellphone Crossbody Cases and MORE
A super-stylish way to keep the phone out of your hands but still close enough to hear you've received a call or text is to use a case with a lanyard or a strap. Here are two that a cute and very well-priced.
The Gold wallet case and The Black sleek credit card case. There are so many cute options on the market today! I chose my favorites for the Safertech shop, I've also got Oprah's Favorite Things cellphone case too. But, please, please, be really careful how you cross-body and never wear a cellphone case around your neck like a VIP pass lanyard.
Wear the Crossbody Case This WayIn my video, I show why it's a good idea is to keep the invisible energy from the phone away from your amazing body and carry it on your wrist. I cut my straps down or knot the lanyard type straps so that the phone has about a 10-inch drop from my wrist. Seriously, do this. If you cross-body that cell phone it can end up laying right over your reproductive organs or if it swings to the side, or back it lands on your hip bone. Your hip bone is where red blood cells are produced. Probably not a good idea to direct the energy from your cell phone to that area either. And worn around the neck from a strap--that's usually right on top of your heart. OH MY! Know for sure that there's an "energy plume" that's strongest (sometimes really intense) coming from the phone which, happily, decreases as it gets further away from you. Dangling it from your wrist with at least a 10-inch drop (about a 24-inch strap) is a good idea. Try it.
Wristlet Cases Are CuteThe cases with a small wrist strap aren't my favorite option, as they don't give you a whole lot of distance from the cell phone but, better than nothing and a step in the right direction.
Crossbody (If you must. . .)
The entire way I live with my phone and technology, is right in sync with the other good, nice things I try to do for my body to keep it healthy and happy. Exercise, supplements, breathing, stretching, meditation, jin shin juytsu, you get the idea. More and more research is signaling that this invisible energy could be really damaging. I think of it as just another form of pollution or toxin that I'm exposed to. Such as smoke or dirty water, I'm better off if I keep my distance.
But if you need more even more reason not to hold that phone--just check your cell phone manual--my iPhone manual recommends keeping the phone 10mm away in order to stay within the tested limits.
Translate that to mean out of my hands and away from my body. I also put the City of Berkeley Cellphone Ordinance in Tech Wellness Research section. It requires retailers to post a notice basically saying keep that cellphone at a distance. And now, the State Of California Health Department has released Guidelines for Cellphone Safety- recommending distance as well!
Better safe (and stylish) than sorry? Yes!! xo August
