Growing Kids are Particularly at Risk from EMF Radiation
It’s become commonplace to see children, even toddlers with laptops and tablets on their laps, or clutching on to smartphones. However, are our children being exposed to potentially harmful EMF radiation from these devices? Children are not “small versions” of adults. Multiple studies indicate that children are particularly vulnerable to the effects of these EMFs. Which means that you as a parent or grandparent need to be particularly vigilant.
Exposure to EMF impacts the body in a number of ways. Notably compromising cell membrane function, calcium and antioxidant balance, DNA, and blood brain barrier permeability. Just some of the diseases linked to EMF exposures of the type given off by tablets and laptops include:
- Brain tumors
- Cardiovascular disease
- Multiple Sclerosis
The FCC report, OET Bulletin 65, states that computer laptop type devices need to be placed at least 20 cm (approximately 8 inches) from the body.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has also made its position clear with regard to WiFi radiation type exposures. In May 2011 the WHO issued a statement classifying these exposures as a possible class 2B carcinogen.
