Фишка дня: Ferrite beads may stop cellphone radiation_

ferrite beadA British government advisor says that ferrite beads, which are commonly used to stop data interference in PCs, can effectively stop radiation emissions from hands-free cellphone kits.  Best of all, the beads only cost a few pence a piece and measure less than a centimeter in diameter.   While hands-free kits on their own do minimize whatever small amount of radiation comes from cellphones, some radiation can apparently climb up the wires and be absored by your head.  Of course, none of this does anything about whatever side effects there may be from keeping your cellphone in your pocket.
