This, to me, is cringeworthy!
It’s true, we do not yet fully know what the ramifications of all this wifi radiation (more accurately called EMF radiation) could be. It’s a “new” phenomenon when taken into consideration of the entire history of the earth.
But there ARE studies that show the risks, and they are slowly being made public.
Just in from the State of California: “Under a court order, last week California public health officials released draft guidelines advising cell phone users to keep phones away from their bodies, use speaker phone and limit use. The guidelines, first reported by the San Francisco Chronicle, advise Californians that scientific studies have linked electromagnetic radiation from long-term cell phone use to an increased risk of brain cancer and other health problems.”
They conclude: “Now more than ever, American cell phone users need real-world, relevant data on how much radiation phones, and the other wireless devices all around us, emit under various circumstances. Until this information is publicly available, taking steps to lower exposure to wireless radiation is prudent.” This comes from Olga Naidenko Ph.D., Senior Science Advisor for Children’s Environmental Health, and you can read the full report here.
The World Health Organization states that the exposure from wifi devices is a “possible carcinogen”, and has set as high priority to study these findings. The National Cancer Institute is in the ongoing process of studying the effects of wifi radiation and incidences of childhood leukemia.
Yikes. “Possible carcinogen” is good enough for me to want protection.
But still, is EMF exposure REALLY a big deal? This page explains it all in great detail if you’d like all the facts to make your own conclusions.
The Forbes author emphasizes the fact that this type of radiation affects children even more than adults, as their cells are still forming at a rapid rate. Adults should also err on the side of caution, as it is such an unknown. Pregnant women most of all should not be using any devices at all on their (ever shrinking) laps without the proper shielding.
However in the Parents article, it suggests no lap usage at all without at least a “cooling” pad to shield the radiation. It should be known that a “cooling pad” will not shield one bit of wifi radiation. Have you noticed that your wifi signal manages to go through the floors and walls of your home from your modem to your device? Then really, how could a little cooling pad shied anything at all?
That is where the Lapdog comes in. The core of the Lapdog is a fabric specifically made for shielding, and we chose the highest shielding factor possible. It will shield ~80dB of EMFs from all devices we use on our laps. That’s A LOT!
Wouldn’t it be catastrophic to look back from the future with possible headlines such as “Cancer Incidences Spike For Kids Who Grew Up in the Wifi Generation”, and know that we did nothing to prevent exposure? It’s easy to do, just shield those EMFs. So easy!
