We simply can’t escape modern technology and the exposure to radiation. It’s just everywhere. There are so many people with wireless devices and cell phones today that you don’t have to have a cell phone to be exposed.
However, if you think ipads or other tablets can’t give off much radiation, you are wrong. Here is what you must know. Wireless radiation has been linked to leukemia, autism, ADHD, cancer, and Alzheimers.
The World Health Organization named wireless radiation a possible carcinogen. putting it in a class with DDT, lead, and tailpipe exhaust in terms of potential to cause cancer.
Non-ionizing or microwave radiation damages the brain and sperm of experimental animals. Since tablets are microwave transmitters, they emit short but intense bursts of pulsed radiation every few seconds. Children’s rapidly-developing nervous and immune systems can be seriously affected by this radiation, leading to brain maturation and resulting in reproductive damage. This microwave radiation disrupts DNA, weakens the brain’s protective barrier, and releases highly reactive and damaging free radicals. The bone marrow of a child’s head absorbs 10 times more radiation than an adult, while those of infants and toddlers will absorb even more.
Research studies found that adults who have used wireless gadgets intensively for at least ten years experience an increase in brain cancer (glioma and acoustic neuroma), salivary gland cancer, and even rare eye cancers on the side of the head where the cell phone was predominantly held (Davis, 2010). Some men diagnosed with testicular cancer had the cancer occur in the testicle that was closest to the pant pocket where they stashed their cell phone (Davis, 2013).
These are its potential risks:
Impaired Brain Function
It has been scientifically proven that Wi-Fi affects the function of the brain and concentration, leading to memory loss and trouble concentrating.
The exposure to Wi-Fi frequencies reduce sperm movement and lead to DNA fragmentation, reduced fertility, and a higher risk of abnormal pregnancy.
Damages Childhood Development
The non-thermal radio frequency radiation from Wi-Fi impedes normal cellular development, especially fetal development, as its affects growing tissues in the children and youth, so they are at a high risk of developmental issues.
Numerous people experience a real physical response to electromagnetic frequencies, such as increased heart rate, as it raises the risk of heart disease.
Development of Insomnia
Wi-Fi significantly affects sleep, due to the low-frequency modulation. People who are exposed to electromagnetic radiation need much more time to fall asleep.
Therefore, these are several ways to limit Wi-Fi radiation and protect yourself:
- Do not keep the cell phone in the pocket
- In the case of pregnancy, do not keep it close to the belly
- Wireless baby monitors operate on microwave frequency, so avoid them.
- Do not keep the wireless router in your kitchen or bedroom.
- Use wired phones when at home, to limit the exposure to electromagnetic radiation.
- Avoid talking on the cell phone and focus on texting.
- Keep the phone far from you, and on the seat, while driving.
- Before going to bed at night, disconnect all Wi-Fi devices.
