Research conducted by The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IRIC) which is part of the United Nations World Health Organization has recently revealed research and classified chloroform, gasoline fumes, or the pesticide as Class 2B Carcinogens , these are substances that concerned parents would limit the exposure of towards their children, However, the list consists of 250 other agents and includes Radiofrequency Electromagnetic fields (RF/EMF), this substance can mainly be found in Televisions, Microwaves, Mobile Phones, Laptops and Wi-Fi devices.
This is of grieve concerns but it is also to be noted that in this day and age these devices are an integral part of our existence, although we cannot completely eradicate their use it is important to limit the use of these devices, an article was published in Journal of Microscopy and Ultrastructure entitled “Why children absorb more microwave radiation than adults: The consequences.” the article was controversial as some agreed but others didn’t these are the points they issued;
Children absorb a greater amount of microwave radiation than adults.
Fetuses are even more vulnerable than children. So it is compulsory that pregnant women should avoid exposing their fetus to microwave radiation.
Adolescent girls and women should not place cellphones in their bras or in hijabs (headscarf).
Cellphone manual warnings make clear an overexposure problem exists.
Government warnings have been issued but most of the public are unaware of such warnings.
Latest exposure limits are inadequate and should be revised.
Wireless devices are radio transmitters, not toys. Selling toys that use them should be monitored more closely.
According to the author Children and Fetuses are at greater risk from radiation because their bodies are smaller and skulls are thinner and their brain tissue is considered to be more absorbent.
You can protect your children by switching off the WiFi at night and turning cell phones to airplane mode, do not allow children to excessively use any of the mentioned devices.
