Many parents aren’t aware they should protect their children from household electromagnetic frequency radiation. EMF radiation can come from everyday household devices like laptops, cellphones, and tablets.
What Is Electromagnetic Radiation?
Electromagnetic radiation, also known as electromagnetic waves, is energy formed through electrical and magnetic fields’ vibrations. It has three properties: energy, wavelength, and frequency, and is invisible to the human eye, although it’s there.
To understand what electromagnetic radiation or frequency is, it’s essential to realize that almost everything on earth is vibrating energy at some level. The human body has its own electromagnetic fields, where atoms make up our bodies and each atom has its own electric field.
Electromagnetic fields are comprised of an electric and a magnetic field perpendicular to each other, which travel together in an invisible waveform.
Types of Radiation
There are two types of EMFs 1) Low Frequency or LF and 2) High frequency or HF.
LF EMFs have lower frequencies than visible light and are non-ionizing, like microwave ovens, smart meters, WiFi, Bluetooth, powerlines, MRIs, and computers. Don’t be fooled. Just because it says “low” doesn’t mean it’s better for you than the high-frequency waves!
HF EMFs have higher frequencies than visible light and ionize radiation, like UV lights, gamma rays, and X-rays. These are the most dangerous types of radiation because direct exposure can reap unhealthy results.
Natural sources of EMR can be produced by the atmosphere like the sun, thunderstorms, and the earth’s natural magnetic fields. People essentially made EMFs whey they created the electricity that comes from your electric plugs at home, TV, and especially microwave ovens.
Children And Household EMF Radiation
The human body is electric, just like our brains and heart. Therefore exposing your already electrified body parts to more electric waves will eventually have a biological effect on your body.
Keeping children away from devices that produce radiation helps. Children’s small bodies could grow up with a biological reaction after years of EMF/RF exposure. (like kids sleeping with cell phones or laptops on laps)
According to the popular organization Environmental Health Trust, children are more susceptible to radiation than adults because bone density has not developed, and there is less body mass (and more water mass) for EMFs to penetrate through. Check out this video for more information.
Here’s another video showing a young man vs. a young child and the amount of cell phone radiation through the child’s brain vs. the adult.
Don’t let children hold cell phones close to their brains or bodies!
Children’s health risks include increased changes for meningiomas, gliomas, and other cancerous tumors. Other health risks include brain cancer, increased blood lead levels in the brain, damage to the blood-brain barrier, leukemia, ADHD, autism, and obesity.
How To Protect Your Children
Children are not “little adults.”
Given the physical differences, it is clear that children are much more susceptible to radiation than adults who can absorb 2x to 10x more radiation.
According to Defender Shield, which sells products to help protect yourself from radiation, says “Users are advised to minimize the exposure of electronic devices to the body by maintaining a safe distance from them, such as by not holding them up close to their body or ear. One might also try a radiation shielding device to prevent touching their electronic devices with bare skin. As children’s bodies are developing, it makes sense to especially minimize their exposure to EMF.”
Some parents turn WiFi off if it’s not being used, to help reduce radiation inside the home. Another way to help prevent or reduce radiation exposure is to limit time on wireless devices (cell phones, tablets, wireless game gadgets, laptops, and anything else that needs wireless to work).
Protective parents also ensure their children are not sleeping or playing next to the WiFi router or smart meter.
Defender Shield and other organizations sell EMF protective clothing and products that can significantly help your children stay protected from these health hazard devices.
