If you’d like to lower your blood pressure, it could be as simple as not answering the phone.
Being on the phone for 30 minutes a week can increase blood pressure by 12% – and that’s not from one phone call – that’s all the calls in total.
And it doesn’t have anything to do with who you speak with on the phone – yes, spam calls are annoying – but even if you’re having a nice call with grandma, just using the phone can be hazardous for your health as the low levels of RF energy has been linked to hypertension.
The more you’re on your cell phone, the greater the risk – up to 25% increase for those who spend more than six hours a week chatting away.
Sometimes, a text is just better.
