Wi-Fi Exposure Dangerous to Kids: Study

Tuesday, 13 January 2015 01:01 PM


If your kids use cell phones and other modern electronics, the radiation they're being exposed to may be putting them in more danger than was previously thought, according to new research. A report, published in the Journal of Microscopy and Ultrastructure, found that children absorb more radiation from a source than adults.

The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IRIC) classifies radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (RF/EMG) as a Class 2 B Carcinogen, the same category as lead, chloroform, gasoline fumes or the pesticide DDT, says Forbes. Sources of RF/EMF include televisions, microwave ovens, cellphones, and Wi-Fi devices.

According to Forbes, the report, which was an analysis of peer-reviewed studies, said that while children are more vulnerable than adults because their skulls are thinner and their brains more absorbent, fetuses are the most vulnerable of all. It warned that pregnant women should avoid all sources of radiation, and that women should avoid placing cellphones in their bras.

In addition, the studies linked RF/EMF exposure to several conditions, including cancers of the brain, ADHD, and low sperm counts. The study also found that cancers may occur 30 years or more after exposure.

Forbes quotes a Network World article that asks, "Will we look back (sadly) in fifty or a hundred years and marvel at how Wi-Fi and cellphones were responsible for the biggest health crisis in human history?"
