It’s a fact: children do absorb more EMF radiation than adults.
Electromagnetic radiation is, according to World Health Organization, in the same category of toxins like lead, exhaust fumes and chloroform.
So, why do kids absorb more EMFs than adults? It’s because their skulls are thinner and their brain tissue is less resistant and contains more fluid; therefore it’s more absorbent to toxic influences. Kids are generally under higher risk if they are exposed to any kind of toxin or carcinogen, including electro-magnetic emissions.
The photo above from professor’s Om P Gandhi, (University of Utah) research on current underestimation of cell phone radiation’s exposure limits, especially in children shows how much deeper EM waves penetrate the scull of child in compare to scull of an adult.
Physical issues for children:
- Neurotoxic consequences.
- Formation of free radicals which damage tissue.
- Damage of endocrine system.
Negative psychological and behavioral consequences:
- Sleep disorders.
- Kids get addicted to technology easier than adults.
In research done by the WHO particular issues included the role of extremely low frequency (ELF) magnetic fields in the development of childhood cancer and possible risks from mobile phone radiofrequency (RF) radiation, especially regarding brain cancer and cognitive function.
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 a direct correlation, in fact, an 80% increased tendency for children to have behavioral, emotional, and hyperactive behaviors after excessive pre and postnatal cell phone exposure.
In 2013, there have several studies published on the connections between ADHD and EMFs. This many studies in in this little time indicates a growing concern that warrants immediate attention.
