The World Health Organization has been compiling data on the health risks of electromagnetic fields emitted by cell phones, but the release of the report has been delayed for over two years.

In the meantime, many nations have sought to protect their citizens by issuing their own recommendations for cell phone use, including an announcement in Canada last week.

Here in the U.S., the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute recently posted a useful list of tips to limit harmful health impacts of cell phones:

  1. Do not allow children to use a cell phone, except for emergencies.
  2. Use hands-free ear pieces or speakerphone.
  3. Make sure the back of the phone is pointing away from your body so that the transmitted electromagnetic fields move away from you rather than through you.
  4. Switch sides regularly while communicating on your cell phone to spread out your exposure.
  5. Don't sleep near your phone unless it is off, particularly if you are pregnant.
