Why EMFs are Especially Dangerous to Children



We know that EMFs from wireless technology pose a major threat to all living things. But did you know that children are the ones who are the most at risk?


The threat of widespread EMF exposure is fairly new to children. When wireless technology devices were first released to the public, society largely kept them away from kids. Today, over 83% of children have cell phones (see diagram below)


It is important to note that cell phones have progressively gotten more dangerous in terms of their EMF emittance.


To put it simply, not only have cell phones become more prevalent in our children's lives (and the world at large), but they have also become more dangerous as the networks and connected devices expand.


Parents will say the reasoning is to “stay connected” with their kids, but they likely are unaware of the consequences of giving their children these devices. I’d like to highlight several eye opening studies that reveal the unfortunate reality that wireless technology (cell phones, tablets, laptops, etc.) are even more damaging to children than they are to adults.


A study dating all the way back to 1996 (when EMF levels were far lower than they are today) shows that the absorbed microwave radiation (MWR) penetrated proportionally deeper into the brain of children aged 5 and 10 compared to adults’ brains. (1) In 2008, a study from the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine reported that the brain tissue of children absorbed about two times more MWR than adults’ brain tissue. (2)


A 2009 study reported the central nervous system (CNS) absorption by children is “significantly larger (∼2×) because the RF [MWR] source is closer and skin and bone layers are thinner”, and “bone marrow exposure strongly varies with age and is significantly larger for children (∼10×)” (3)


In 2010, a study was conducted to compare the MWR absorption rates in children’s brains, bones, and eyes. The study reported children's hippocampus and hypothalamus absorbs 1.6–3.1 times higher and the cerebellum absorbs 2.5 times higher MWR compared to adults’; children's bone marrow absorbs 10 times higher MWR radiation than in adults, and children's eyes absorb higher MWR than adults. (4) EMFs from wireless technology have been consistently proven to cause a multitude of health problems including DNA damage, cancer, oxidative stress, insomnia, immunodeficiencies, altered brain development, infertility, and more. With fierce opposition, activists are working to get rid of WiFi in schools because of these very alarming discoveries. Perhaps the most notable figure doing this brave work is the American Dr. Devra Davis, the woman who is the reason we don’t allow smoking on airplanes anymore.


Several countries including France, Belgium, Russia, Israel, Spain, Australia and Italy have already taken action to combat this growing issue by removing or reducing the usage of wireless technology in their schools. This is a good start, but much more needs to be done. Society is always quick to jump on things, but often overlooks the consequences involved with its actions. Cell phones may be convenient, but they surely are not safe, especially for children. Wired internet, instead of wireless, should be used in schools (and in homes) to protect the next generation of humanity. If your child is going to use wireless technology, then the least you can do is ensure they are protected.
