Cell phones use transmitting radio waves through a series of base stations where radio frequency waves are electromagnetic fields that cannot break chemical bonds or cause ionization in the human body.
Although cell phones are considered to be low-powered radio frequency transmitters, your handset transmits power when it is on, and therefore it is important to increase your distance from the handset to reduce radio frequency exposure
Cell phones should keep a minimum distance of 20 centimeters from their handset to significantly reduce radiation exposure. Adults and especially children can suffer the long-term effects of radiation waves on the brain.
