Did you know that the brains of children are absorbing far more radiation than those of adults? Sadly, most people don’t and because of this, our children will be the ones who pay the price.
Research shows that radiation from things like cell phones and WI-FI have proven to diminish reaction time in children, increase distraction, cause inability to focus, and decrease motor function. You see, because children are still developing they have something known as rapid cellular replication and growth rates that make them more-so vulnerable to DNA damage.
Leading experts from several top universities have actually even gone so far as to convene a program just a few years ago in order to discuss the harsh reality that this entails. The panel warned that this catastrophe is already negatively impacting children across the globe.
This discussion was called “Cell Phones and Wi-Fi – Are Children, Fetuses, and Fertility at Risk?” During this discussion, a very wide range of evidence was presented showing that RF/MW electromagnetic radiation has indisputable biological and health effects. This kind of radiation is emitted by things like Bluetooth devices, cordless phones, baby monitors, WI-FI routers, smart meters, antennas, cell phones, and other wireless devices.
One controlled study from researchers at Yale University positioned a cell phone above a cage of pregnant mice and ensured the phone was transmitting an uninterrupted call for the entire 17 days of gestation. After the babies were born they tested the offspring and found that they showed signs of ADHD and reduced transmission in the prefrontal cortex of the brain.
Camilla Rees of ElectromagneticHealth.org said as follows in regards to this:
“It’s not talking on the phone that matters, it’s any time the phone is turned on, Every 900 milliseconds whether you are using the phone or not, your cell phone has a spike in radiation because it is looking for a signal from the tower…”
Back in 2011, the IARC or International Agency for Research on Cancer concluded that exposure to cell phone radiation is a “possible carcinogen” and classified it into the 2B category. This is the same category as the pesticide DDT, lead, and dry cleaning chemicals. According to electromagnetichealth.org, there are nine types of cancer linked to cell phone use. These include leukemia, thyroid cancer, breast cancer, and even eye cancer.
Extreme caution was advised for pregnant women or women hoping to conceive due to the profound long-term impact is known historically to occur from environmental factors. “A lot of who we are right now has to do with what our mothers did when they were pregnant and what type of exposures they had.”—Hugh Taylor, MD, Chairman of Obstetrics and Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences, Yale University. As with DES and many other toxic substances, he said, the effects from exposure to the fetus may not appear for a generation.
Children should not be playing with radiating cell phones. Young children should not be using cell phones, except in an emergency. If your child wants to play with the device, disconnect it from Wi-Fi and Internet, and put it in “airplane mode.”
Limit or eliminate WiFi exposures. If you have Wi-Fi, get rid of it if you can. If you can’t, make sure your router is not in a high use area. Keep it turned it off as much as possible, or put it on a timer. Make sure WiFi is turned off at night. If your neighbors have WiFi that reaches your home, shield your premises. Never use RF emitting devices in shielded premised.
Schools should not have WiFi. Panelists strongly opposed the installation of Wi-Fi in schools. Cabled/wired connections do not have the same risks. Push for no WiFi in classrooms and No WiFi zones for studying, and for at least one 100% No-WiFi public school in your area.
Resume using landline phones whenever possible. Get rid of your portable phone and use a landline instead. If you have a portable phone, don’t sleep with the handset or base in your bedroom. Caution regarding ‘Trimline’ and other flat style phones, where the electronics for the speaker may be closer to your ear.
Keep your cell phone away from your body. If you have a cell phone, keep it away from your body, as opposed to in your pocket or on your belt. If you’re pregnant, keep it away from your belly. Keep your cell at the other end of the room, or on the seat of the car. Use texting more than talking to keep the device away from your skull. Special cell phone cases are available that filter out a significant portion of the radiation with a mechanical means, but not all. Many popular metal cases can actually magnify radiation. Fully shielded cases will be available through Electromagnetichealth.org. Please email [email protected] electromagnetichealth.org to receive announcement.
Use a wired (non-Bluetooth) earpiece with cell phones and portable phones.
Caution about using cell phones in cars. Signals bounce around inside your vehicle—and your head is the antenna.
Opt-out of new utility meters called ‘smart meters’. When possible, prevent smart meters from being installed in your home. Reflect radiation away from your home with shielding paints and materials found at www.EMFSafetyStore.com
Never use wireless baby monitors. Avoid the use of wireless baby monitors as they all operate on microwave frequency. Find the old analog models.
Know your exposures. For about $500, you or your community can purchase an Electrosmog meter with which to measure the EMF in any particular area—homes, schools, churches, etc. Don’t guess or assume—measure.
What do you think, could we be damaging our selves and our children more than we realize? I for one will be cutting back a bit if possible. This is a bit terrifying.
