Mobile networks have become so ubiquitous that some Americans can barely use their cellphones, but others can’t.
The wireless market has become so vast that it’s becoming impossible to use them safely, even for those who can afford to buy a new phone.
It’s not just rural Americans who are left behind.
“It’s a really difficult problem to solve because it’s so ubiquitous,” said Jeff Zients, a senior policy analyst at the advocacy group Public Knowledge.
“We’re seeing an increasing number of rural communities that have to rely on traditional cellular networks.”
How to protect yourself and your family from cell phone radiation When you’re outside of your home, don’t forget to wear a helmet, which should keep you and your loved ones safe.
The International Committee of the Red Cross recommends that people in low- and middle-income countries wear a mask that covers the face and neck, and wear one that fits snugly.
But it says you shouldn’t wear it for long periods of time or for extended periods of hours, because the protective material can wear off.
If you’re inside your home or workplace, don a face mask when you’re not using your phone.
When you’re at work, wear a face cover that covers your face, but not your mouth.
To protect yourself from cell phones that emit radio waves, wear earmuffs that block the ear canal and put on a face shield.
Don’t use your cellphone in public if you have an air filter.
A cell phone’s radio waves can penetrate air filters.
When you don’t use it, the phone emits radio waves that can penetrate your air filter, and this can damage your lungs and cause you to breathe in harmful fumes.
