How Do Cell Phones Work?

With worldwide mobile subscriptions estimated to be around 7 billion in 2014, cell phones have become a universal and indispensable tool for modern life. With a cell phone, you can talk to anybody on the planet from almost anywhere. But do you really know how your cell phone works?

In the most basic form, a cell phone is essentially a two-way radio, consisting of a radio transmitter and a radio receiver. When you chat with your friend on your cell phone, your phone converts your voice into an electrical signal, which is then transmitted via radio waves to the nearest cell tower. The network of cell towers then relays the radio wave to your friend’s cell phone, which converts it to an electrical signal and then back to sound again.

Making Life Clean with Pong and Aquasana

Hi Pong Gang,

Water is the lifeblood of our planet. 70% of our bodies are water and we’re designed to run primarily on H2O and minerals. What’s more, we interact with water all day long in ways other than consumption, from our morning showers and teeth brushing to cooking and cleaning. Whether water is sustaining us, cascading over bodies, or rinsing our dishes, the cleanliness of it has a major impact on our health.

Water Contaminants

People and pollution have had a major impact on water quality. Water is often the settling spot for everything from airborne particles to solid waste. Of course there are large water purification facilities meant to remove all of the nastiness, but even if they manage to get the majority of junk out of your water, the distances from municipal source to your home can be filled with contaminants. There are a lot of old pipes and a lot of horrific chemicals leaching into the ground. Chlorine, lead, asbestos, turbidity, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) – the list goes on.


Aquasana water filters are eco-friendly, affordable, and provide maximum reduction of chemicals and contaminants in water. They offer home drinking water filters, shower filters, and whole house solutions to ensure the water you drink, cook with, and bathe in are as close to pure water as nature intended.

Other ways to clean up exposure in your life

– Purify your Air

Simply opening your windows will help improve the quality of the air you breathe. An air purifier and/or indoor plants also make breathing better. Opt for organic or homemade cleaners and detergents. Plus, taking your shoes off at the door can prevent you from tracking in herbicides and other dangerous chemicals you pick up outdoors.

– Go Organic

Eating your fruits and veggies is healthy, right? Not when they are full of harmful pesticides. Choosing organic, especially when eating includes the skins can greatly reduce your exposure. Farmers markets and even local supermarkets offer selections of organic foods. You can even grow your own food using organic soils and mulch, as well as organic or homemade bug spray.

– Reduce EMR Exposure

Radiation comes in two forms. Natural, and man-made. From cosmic radiation emitted by the sun to TVs, cell phones, and microwaves, the human body is exposed to both forms of radiation every day. One of the best ways to reduce your exposure is by limiting the amount coming from your cell phone. offers a great solution that protects you without impeding your phone signal.\
