Children & EMF’s - What You Need to Know!
Is your child's favorite pastime screen time? Are you concerned about how much exposure your kids have to electromagnetic fields (EMFs) from computers, mobile phones, tablets, electronic toys and the like? If not, you should be! Experts report two minutes on a mobile phone can alter brain function in a child for an hour and children who use a mobile by age 7 have an 80% higher incidence of behavioural problems.
Children face a greater risk of injury from all these wireless devices as their developing nervous systems have greater susceptibility to damage. Their brain tissue is more conductive and more absorbent (2-3 times of an adult), their cranial bones are thinner and they face longer cumulative exposure.
Studies show how "digital addiction" leads to structural and functional changes in the brain so health risks from EMFs cover a broad spectrum from links to cancer, infertility, DNA damage, autoimmune issues, reduced tissue repair, neurological dysfunction, cognitive problems, emotional & behavioral issues, anxiety and fatigue to name a few.
So what can you do about it? As it is impossible to eliminate EMFs, reducing exposure is the only way to minimize the potential harm to your family. We suggest the following:
Unplug your child! Restrict use of mobile phones, ipads, fitbits, wireless headphones etc.
Limit exposure to background levels of WiFi. Turn devices off at night or when not in use.
Have your child’s neurological milestones assessed to ensure their nervous system is functioning optimally.
