Abstract: Electromagnetic Field (EMF) radiation is a wave of the electromagnetic field. The radiation from mobile phones, cordless phones, mobile antennas, and many other devices pose health threats, especially when they are close to the body for extended period. In humans and animals, bioelectrical signals regulate many processes. Therefore, EMF radiations can interfere with the natural way of how our body works; it affects our body at cell level. Moreover, the impact of EMF radiation on our eco-system is serious due to growing number of broadcasting antennas, mobile communications base stations etc. World Health Organization (WHO) says the EMF radiations produced by mobile phone is classified by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) as possible carcinogen to humans. The aim of this research paper is to survey on mobile phone usage and EMF radiation awareness. Our results from analyzing the survey data shows that 86.2% people keep their mobile phones near their ears while receiving calls, 77.7% people keep mobile phones in their bedroom before going to bed. Based on the results and considering the major impact of EMF radiations, we propose innovative house design called Radiation Reduced Dwelling (RRD) by which the EMF radiation exposure can be minimized at home. Moreover, we propose an Environment Friendly Link (EFL) by which mobile base stations case be avoided in forests and hilly areas.
