|Protect Your Precious|
We live in the digital age and the reality is…technology isn’t going away. In fact, it’s evolving at a rate faster than we are as human beings. While scientific innovation makes our lives more convenient, there’s a dark side to the harmful effects of exposure to electromagnetic radiation from wireless devices and the radio frequencies that surround us. Unfortunately, it’s children who are most vulnerable to the effects from Wi-Fi radiation due to their growing bodies & developing brains, yet many parents unknowingly expose their unborn babies or young children daily. The good news is there are action steps and protective measures you can take – starting today – to shield yourself and your precious cargo.
Do Cell Phones Cause Cancer?
In 2011, the World Health Organization classified cell phone radiation as a “2B carcinogen”, which means possibly carcinogenic to humans. The concern is that cell phones have only been in widespread use for a couple of decades, the long-term health impact are yet to be seen. Click here to read an informative fact sheet from the WHO about Mobile Phones and Public Health.
In addition, the early, partial findings in the $25 million U.S. National Toxicology Program animal study show that exposure to cell phone radiation leads to a slightly increased risk of malignant gliomas in the brain and schwannomas of the heart in male rats. These are the largest, most complex studies ever conducted by NTP.
Cell Phones Are Not Toys
While you don’t need to stop using a cell phone, you do need to be informed and take the necessary precautions by making simple, common-sense changes to reduce radiation exposure. In fact, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), has issued specific recommendations to reduce wireless cell phone exposure and updated their online resources for parents concerning cell phones and wireless devices.
“They’re not toys. They have radiation that is emitted from them and the more we can keep it off the body and use (the phone) in other ways, it will be safer.” ~Jennifer A. Lowry, M.D., FAACT, FAAP, chair of the AAP Council on Environmental Health Executive Committee
Exposure to Radiation
Over the past few years there has been growing evidence that exposure to everyday radiation (low-frequency, non-ionizing radiation) may cause significant health risks, especially during pregnancy and early childhood. These risks have increased considerably over the past decade along with the prevalence of cell phones, computers, power lines, smart meters and other electronic devices – including wireless baby monitors. Health experts and organizations worldwide are advising precautionary measures to lower this exposure.
The fine peeps at Belly Armor even offer a safe alternative to cordless baby monitors. Traditional DECT baby monitors emit significant amounts of microwave radiation over extended periods of infant exposure as we’ve discussed on this blog before (read: You Mean Baby Monitors Aren’t Safe?). The new CARE (Cordless Anti-Radiation Environment) technology in the SmartNova Baby Monitor achieves the same clear and private communication, while emitting 97% less radiation and no pulsing radiation.
Meet Belly Armor
As Baubiologists®, Ron and I were over the moon to discover the amazing work Belly Armor does to protect little ones and we just had to introduce you to this brand (and offer a fabulous giveaway so you could experience their amazing products firsthand). Belly Armor is made with RadiaShield® Fabric, a highly conductive silver textile with similar shielding properties as a 1/4-inch thick sheet of aluminum. RadiaShield® Fabric works to shield everyday radiation by neutralizing, through reflection and absorption, incoming electromagnetic waves, canceling out the ambient radiation and reducing your exposure (learn more about RadiaShield® Technology). Belly Armor is the definitive resource for information and tools to protect children in the womb and newborn children against the risks of everyday radiation. The with RadiaShield® Fabric is:
- Super light-weight (weighs less than the cotton in t-shirts)
- Machine washable
- Soft to the touch
- Free of toxins and allergens
- Highly effective as proven by independent testing in FCC-certified and NVLAP-accredited labs
Maternity, Nursery & Fertility Protection
With a full range of products – from Belly Blankets and Belly Bands to maternity tops, nursing covers, baby hats and men’s briefs –Belly Armor products shield against non-ionizing radiation (10MHz~8GHz), which are emitted by everyday electronic devices and other ambient sources, such as cell phone towers, but they cannot completely shield against all low-frequency radiation exposure in your environments or high-frequency/ionizing radiation (ie: X-rays).
Listen up gals (and guys…oh yes! They’ve even got you, ahem, covered with their RadiaShield® Men’s Boxer Brief’s to reduce radiation to reproductive organs)!
