Tanzania – Policy Recommendations On Cell Phones, Wireless Radiation & Health


2014 – Director General of Tanzania Atomic Energy Commission (TAEC), Mr Idy Mkilaha publicly endorses precaution.

  • “Mr Mkilaha says that when weighing up this convenient tool with the questionable health impact control, caution and measures must be taken to reduce one’s exposure from radio frequency (RF) emissions from the cell phone to prevent health hazards.”
  • “According to TAEC, we should use hands-free devices or wireless headset to increase the distance between the phone and our heads. This is the best approach because it creates distance between us and the radiating phone… We should also keep phone away from us when dialling. Phones use more radiation during connection time, says TAEC.”
