Are Cell Phones & Wi-Fi Safe for Children?

By Stephen T. Sinatra, M.D., F.A.C.C., F.A.C.N., C.N.S., C.B.T.

We live in an ever-expanding environment of man-made frequencies that feed an ever-expanding global marketplace of wireless consumerism…

All the gadgets, gizmos, devices, cell phones, cordless phones, tablets, and other electronic what-nots that have revolutionized human communication and transactions. It’s all ultra cool, to be sure, but lurking in all the coolness and convenience carried by those unseen electromagnetic waves are unseen dangers as well.

Humans have created an unchartered frontier of “electropollution” never before experienced on this planet.

As a father, grandfather, and a doctor, I have long been concerned about the potential for health problems from excess exposure, particularly among growing children, whose bodies and nervous systems are more vulnerable than those in adults.

In anything in life, moderation and balance are important because excess can cause problems. That goes for basics like food and exercise and work and drink.

So, too, with technology.

My concern is far from being mine alone, and has reached the level of public health agencies around the world, including the World Health Organization, which has classified the RF electromagnetic fields emitted through use of cell phones and WiFi “as possibly carcinogenic to humans (Group 2B).”

This full article is aimed to make you aware of potential hazards and, more importantly, provide some guidelines for reducing exposure.

    There haven’t been any studies proving its safety (government rather suggests that there are no studies that prove they are dangerous which is very misleading) where my daughter is electrosensitive and homeschooled due to prior chronic illness and headaches. I have problems with wireless frequencies too that causes heart palpitations. The long term effects have yet to be studied – albeit it is known by the WHO to be a carcinogen 2B and recently suggested reclassification as a 2A. How could any possible carcinogen be legal under these circumstances?

    I use to carry a mobile phone in my pocket, and i was always getting the phantom text messages.. i.e. As you walk or travel the phone logs onto the next mobile mast, emitting RF microwaves into your nervous system and a slight vibration would happen. Read the phone manual, it states never put in your pocket hold a distance away from body. if not it will exceeds the RF safety levels. I ride a motorbike and use to keep it in my chest pocket, and was always getting heart palpitations which is now i know the Phantom text messages…….I feel so much better now i don’t carry a phone turned on, and no headaches!!! Good sites which helped me understand

    Does anyone know anything about exposure through monitoring devices like Great Call, Life alert or Medical Alert? These are worn constantly by many who are at risk of falling, etc.
