EMF vs. Your Child

For most people, it is impossible to go even a day without coming into contact with electronic devices such as laptops, tablets and cell phones.

People rely on these technological tools for work, communicating with friends and family, school, and personal enjoyment.

What most people don’t seem to realize, however, is that all of these electronic devices are known to emit waves of Electromagnetic Radiation (EMF).

Even people who are aware of this fact often ignore it, but once you know all of the adverse effects this type of radiation can have on your health, you start to pay more attention.

Some people may try to convince you that the negative health effects of Electromagnetic Radiation are simply a hoax thought up by extremely paranoid people. Unfortunately, research is proving that this is not the case at all.

Children are constantly exposed. Playing video games and watching YouTube videos on their cell phones and tablets 24/7. Not to mention, the amount of time talking on the phone, especially for tweens and teens. Basically, they are exposed to a constant stream of EMFs that never ceases. The brains of children are more susceptible to EMF radiation than those of adults for many reasons, such as:

  • Their skulls are thinner, making it easier for EMF waves to penetrate

  • Their minds are still developing and are easily impacted by EMF waves

  • They have smaller heads with brains positioned closer to the skull

  • Their brains contain more water, meaning EMF rays are conducted more easily through the brain


In 2008, researchers conducted a study of 13,000 children with behavioral problems, asking their mothers about their extent of cell phone use both during and after pregnancy. The researchers concluded that there was a direct correlation, in fact, an 80% higher tendency for children to have behavioral, emotional, and hyperactive behaviors after excessive pre- and post-natal cell phone exposure.

By 2017, however, scientists are now making much more firm statements about the dangers of EMFs for young minds. There’s no hedging or hesitancy in their warnings now.

As Sage and Brugio note:

“Symptoms of retarded memory, learning, cognition, attention, and behavioral problems have been reported in numerous studies and are similarly manifested in autism and attention deficit hyperactivity disorders, as a result of EMF and RFR exposures where both epigenetic drivers and genetic (DNA) damage are likely contributors. Technology benefits can be realized by adopting wired devices for education to avoid health risk and promote academic achievement.”
