Unfortunately, with coverage in the UK approaching 99% of the population and mobile phone reception available on Mount Everest, it is virtually impossible to escape from mobile phone radiation, especially in your own home.

However, despite phone coverage being so ubiquitous, most houses have fields below those at which scientific studies are finding health effects. To discover if the fields in your home are a problem, you really need to measure them. EMFields sell and hire a good range of easy to use equipment, calibrated where appropriate.

Although you can't directly lower the fields that the phone mast is emitting, you can screen your house effectively in a wide variety of ways that lower the fields within your house by several orders of magnitude. EMFields supply thoroughly tested screening material and military-tested paint, or you can read further details of our thoughts on screening.
