The Environmental Health Trust is teaming up with local sponsors to promote safer, educated use of technology. We need your creative ideas to increase awareness about wireless radiation and safe tech habits! Research shows that cell phone radiation is absorbed more deeply in a child’s or adolescent’s brain than an adult brain. Teenagers’ brains are not fully mature and it makes sense to take special steps to protect them socially and physically. Keeping a distance between your brain and the cell phone significantly reduces your exposure to this radiation.
Using your writing, media or art skills, incorporate EHT’s simple Tips to Reduce Exposure in a creative submission detailing how you practice safer tech! Include your project on your resume and possibly be featured in local media, movie theaters, schools and other publications both nationally and internationally.
One way to #PracticeSafeTech is to use a corded – rather than wireless – phone. Check out how to use this recommendation in Aspen Jacquet’s award-winning music video “A Little Chat”, showing why and how to reduce cell phone radiation.
