      There’s some interesting information out there on them, but I have no personal experience with testing them.

    What about flight mode? I usually have my phone in the pocket in airplane mode while listening to music (or the model health show off course). Does that negate some of the harmful effects?

    Thanks man and keep up the good work!

      Fred, you are making a smart move for sure. Switching to airplane mode does cut the wireless transmission, thus drastically reducing the radiation. Gotta make sure that nothing gets in the way of you and The Model Health Show! 🙂

    Does this apply to all wireless devices? Or am I good using an iPad without cellular capability as a morning alarm? Would a laptop give off any radiation, etc.?
