“This Forbes Magazine article provides important information that will be of concern to parents. The electromagnetic fields created by commonly used electronic devices might pose a substantial risk to the health of children and adults alike. However, evidence is showing that children are especially vulnerable for the following reasons:

  1. Their bodies are smaller in relative size.
  2. Their skulls are thinner, allowing these frequencies to more easily reach the brain.
  3. Their brain tissue is more absorbent, making it easier for these frequencies to reach the brain.

What devices emit these frequencies? Often they are the things adults are handing kids all the time: our smartphones, iPads, tablet devices, and laptop computers. Televisions, radios, microwave ovens, and other common WiFi-connected devices also emit these fields.

How do these electromagnetic fields pose a danger to our kids? These fields have been linked to certain kinds of cancer and other disorders. The studies done on this subject are relatively new and there is a lot that still needs to be studied and discovered. However, there are important signs indicating that frequent use of these devices may come with greater risks, especially for our children.

This article is an important read for all parents who want to further educate themselves about the risks involved in providing kids with these devices. Please share it with any parents that you know who might want to learn more about this important topic.”
