The Precautionary Principle
Applied to Cellphone Use
Simply put the Precautionary Principle is a policy that says if there is some evidence that a
problem may exist, and low or no-cost actions are available, then these actions should be
undertaken. Colloquially, we say, “Better safe than sorry.” If cellphones induce brain tumors
the potential public health costs are enormous. There is a simple action that can reduce the
absorbed cellphone radiation by several orders-of-magnitude (factors-of-10) for virtually no
Cellphone radiation decreases as the square of the distance from the phone. As a result even
small changes in distance have a dramatic effect. For example, say when the speaker on the cellphone is placed to the ear, the cellphone is 0.1 inch (2.5 mm) from the head, and if the
cellphone is held 10 inches (25 cm) it is 100 times farther from the head. The square of 100 is
10,000. Because of the inverse square decrease of radiation with distance, this increase in
distance would result in a 10,000-fold reduction in the radiation absorbed by the head.
With use of a headset (not a wireless headset) connected to a cellphone, the cellphone is not held directly against the ear and thus the absorbed cellphone radiation could be reduced by several orders-of-magnitude.
