Is it safe to sleep with a phone near the pillow?
No studies associate using cell phones with health issues, including cancer. Cell phones do radiate electromagnetic radiation—which microwaves and X-rays also emit. However, this radiation leads to tumour growth only in high amounts. The radiation coming from your phone is in low doses, making them perfectly safe to handle.
Yet, the World Health Organization declared in 2011 that using phones may lead to cancer in humans, particularly children. A child’s skull is thinner than an adult’s, making them more vulnerable to radiation.
In conclusion, if you’re concerned about the risks, you can keep the phone away from your ear while calling, use an earphone or the speakerphone setting, or just text instead of calling. And do not put the phone near your head before sleep.
