Red Wi-Fi symbolElectromagnetic Radiation & Children

If you or your children are often tired or ill, maybe electromagnetic radiation is the cause. Electromagnetic radiation is emitted from many modern technologies:-
  • computers
  • wireless routers
  • mobile and wireless phones
  • mobile phone masts
  • TVs
  • microwaves
  • 'smart' gas and electricity meters that monitor consumption
  • hair dryers
  • electric shavers
  • electric blankets
  • electric clock radios (e.g. by bed)
  • wireless baby monitors
  • etc.
As we seemingly move to homes dominated by these electromagnetic devices, what health hazards might they have? And how to protect ourselves?

Natural Child Magazine (posted 2014, accessed 20 May 2014) tells us that, as with other health hazards, the growing body of a child is more at risk. One study showed children absorbed ten times as much radiation as an adult. Electromagnetic radiation has been implicated in serious diseases, like cancer, foetal damage, and immune, nervous and reproductive disorders.
The World Health Organization says that electropollution smog may interfere with tiny electrical currents that are central to body functioning. The article's advice for children:-
  • Avoid chronic, constant exposure to wireless devices at close proximity to you and your baby.
  • Avoid using a baby monitor or choose one carefully.
  • Don’t allow young children to use mobile and cordless phones, especially held next to the head.
  • Keep your own calls on cellular and cordless phones as short as possible if children are nearby, and turn your cell phone off when the call is completed.
  • Remove wi-fi and wireless products from your home, or disconnect the wireless router at night or when it’s not being used.
  • Keep your portable phone base unit as far away as possible (three rooms or a different floor) from where you and your baby spend most of your time.
  • Switching your phone or tablet to “Airplane Mode” will allow access to many applications but reduce radiation exposure.
  • When pregnant or with an infant, avoid prolonged visits to public places where wireless connections are in place
  • Keep your wireless devices away from your pregnant belly and don’t sleep with them in your bedroom.
  • Avoid setting your laptop or tablet across your young child’s legs when it’s online.
My advice is minimise these devices in your home.
Ban them from your bedroom.
Where you must have them, keep them as far away from you as possible.
When you must use them, use them as little as possible.
