Use Corded Landlines!

hCorded landlines provide a clear, reliable connection, and they work even if the power goes out.

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 classifies radiation as a possible carcinogen, in 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, even through walls.

OmGhandiNO-smartphone-sign-colour-smallIt’s very important to protect children as their brains absorb more radiation than adults.  Use corded landline phones. Unplug and remove cordless phones, and use cell phones for emergencies only.

  • 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

  1. Hey Safety Network

    Great information, I’m curious about two things. I’ve read that you should not use the cell phones in enclosed metal spaces such as vehicles or elevators. Also that you shouldn’t make a call when the signal strength is one bar or less. Are those statements true? Last I felt the Ep2 pendant was the best emf protection device that i tried. Do you have any opinion on that product?

    Regards
    Alex

  2. Hi there,
    Anyone know where i can get a device to measure radiation from cell+cordless phones and wifi, and are they exspensive. Thanks.

  3. I am trying to find some information on the blue tooth headsets. some people are saying they are safer than using the phone against your ear but some advice states that the frequency of the headset is as bad if not worse? can you help with this one thanks.

  4. As a California Electrical Contractor I appreciate your website. The National Electrical Code accepts recommendations for code changes from all sources. It takes some time but anyone can precipitate changes there. Transient surges, EMF’s, and
    microwave radio waves pose significant dangers. Right now, after studying the real conditions of our world, our government, and the forces of control I believe the only possible way to help must come from educating people person to person. So keep up the good work!

  5. Avoid putting any phone, even corded to your head. Refer to EIA-504-1983 to understand the unlimited magnetic field US phones, even corded, emit.
    Contrast this to the Canadian EIA-504A-1998 which drops the minimum magetic field by 10 db, since US manufacturers jack up the minimum magnetic field by 10 db to insure the whole production line passes a very poorly crafted specification that is so stupid it took the US FCC 16 yrs to put it in the FCC code, over objections from industry and health organizations, and after retracting the recommendation in 1991 thanks to a letter from the State of CA concerning potential health problems. Better to use a corded phone with a good speakerphone. A panasonic KX series corded speaker phone is probably the cheapest, ($30 by order through a big box store or over the internet). Dont use the kind of phone pictured in this site’s graphic if you want to avoid magnetic fields to the head.

  6. Hi there,
    does anyone know about the U-verse optical fiber phone transmission vs. the old telephone dsl transmission for phone and internet…is one less emf emission than the other? I distrust any major thrust of ATT to get us all over to U-verse.

    Thank you.

  7. I measured a brand new corded phone straight out of the box, and the handset measures live on my EMF meter, giving off a very strong signal, and the centre of the cradle for the handset does also, even before I even plug it in, and even when the handset is not connected to the base unit. My last corded phone, 15 years old, does just the same, even one week after it has been unplugged and the handset disconnected from the base unit, and presumably this new phone has been in it’s packing box for many months, so does anyone know please exactly what is giving off these signals?

    I had thought that there might be some kind of batteries in the unit to keep it from losing stored information in the event of a power cut, but my old model only has the facility for inserting actual batteries in the base unit alone for this reason, yet it, just like my new phone (which does not have any facility for batteries to be inserted for this reason) shows the same high reading on my EMF meter, also, the handsets on both models are completely sealed, and do not allow batteries to be inserted. Even when the batteries have been removed from the base unit of my old phone, the handset and base unit, both disconnected from each other as well as from the power source, still emit signals.

    Maybe they put infinite life atomic batteries in these things or something methinks, unless the EMF meter itself is creating some feedback loop and providing the energy from itself which is then fed back into the EMF meter, providing a false reading, but no other electric device that I possess does this. Puzzled.

  8. Yes, having problems using a corded phone. Anyone know of a low EMF corded phone, perhaps one with speaker? I wonder if one of the old style phones would work.

  9. I have been trying to activate the copper land line at my home ( old home, but new to me). The phone company says I have to convert to ficeroptic cable, but it will be wired to my existing phone jacks. Does anyone know if I should be concerned about this. Is fiberoptic cable less safe than copper wire? Thank you!
