I’ve been warning people about the risks of using wireless technologies during pregnancy and by children for a long time – but hopefully the recent exposure of the WHO report which is being covered by CNN and all the major news networks will finally get the public to really realize this is a serious issue. It takes a long time to clarify all the details of the science because our environment has become so complex – but it’s now becoming quite obvious to those that are willing to listen…
So if you are pregnant or you have children please try to keep these wireless technologies away and don’t cave in to your young childs request for a cell phone! Our culture right now is at a turning point because socially the children want them but they don’t know what will harm them!
So as a pregnant woman who is on my computer and phone all day for my job, I am concerned about radiation exposure to my unborn baby! Especially as the president of Organic Baby University, where we teach moms to avoid dangerous chemicals and other harmful exposures during pregnancy and childhood! So, while I unplug my WiFi when I am not using it in my home, and don’t own a cordless phone, it is impossible for me to do my job without using a phone and computer.
Most people just don’t think about the radiation they are exposing themselves to everyday from cellphone use! It is so common and everyday (and new in the grand scheme of things) that most people just tune out any fears of damaging effects. There is a philosophy that there is no way I am giving it up…so it is better to not know what it is doing to me. Well, there is a better way! Let’s learn a little about what it may do to our bodies, our unborn baby’s bodies, and our children and then find out easy ways to lower exposure! It will be painless I promise!
There has been a lot of new research in the last few years about the dangers of radiation and cell phone use. When cell phones were brought on the market, they were sold without any research about the effects of the radiation. Research has shown that it damages DNA. There has been concern about a link to brain cancer. In fact,
“European research confirmed Dr. Carlo’s findings. Studies suggest that cell phone radiation contributes to brain dysfunction, tumors, and potentially to conditions such as autism, attention deficit disorder, neurodegenerative disease, and behavioral and psychological problems”-The Hidden Dangers of Cell Phone Radiation
Most important for you pregnant moms is the new research that shows:
Mothers who used their mobile phone while pregnant were 54 percent more likely to report issues such as hyperactivity and emotional problems in their children, Britain’s Daily Mail and The Independent reported Monday.
When children later used to cell phones themselves:
So what can you do? You can’t give up modern life after all! Well…
First, I use an old-fashioned corded land-line whenever I can, as I know this is the safest. Learn more about the dangers of cordless phones here. Second, whenever possible, I text instead of call, as this creates less radiation. Third, I try to not use the cell phone unless it is really necessary. MOST IMPORTANT is I NEVER allow my daughter to hold it! This is important since children are much more supseptiable to radiation than adults…in fact, they absorb up to 50% more radiation due to thinner skulls! ELF, or extremely low frequency radiation, has been linked to childhood leukemia!
Of course, as with all new studies there are the doubters. Especially when it may affect a huge, very profitable industry with a lot of power. However, when you are pregnant or have children, it is better to err on the side of caution when you can!
The newest option for when you have to use your phone or laptop is a cool new protector I found when researching when I found out I was pregnant again! It is a company called Belly Armor. I contacted the company to learn more about their product and how it worked. After all, I do have a business to run and have to use a cell phone and computer!
