Living In South Lincolnshire? The Poor 4G Coverage Could Be Bad For Your Health!
9th May 2018
Mobile phone users are told to avoid making calls when signal is poor. This is because the harder the phone tries to connect, the more radiation it emits, which according to many health experts is a potential risk to health.
Common reasons for phones having to work hard to keep signal include:
- Travelling in a moving vehicle, so travelling between masts
- Being in an enclosed space where internal clutter disrupts signal
- Being connected to an over-crowded mast so competing for signal
- Having low battery, so reduced power for dedicating to finding signal
- Being in a signal blackspot – either too far from a mast or surrounded by structures that disrupt signal
A spokesperson for The Country Land and Business Association (CLA) told the BBC
“It’s quite clear these operators are not investing in those areas where 4G is most needed and is really lacking. South Lincolnshire is one of the worst examples”
5 ways experts believe mobile phone radiation could be bad for your health:
- Anxiety and Depression
- Brain Tumours
