If you don’t see something happen, it doesn’t mean that it doesn’t exist. I’ve been talking about the effects of pollution, stress, etc. to different people, since I’m an advocate of proper nutrition and another danger that we are exposed to (which I fail to tackle when talking to them) is radiation. Radiation exposure today is higher today because of the influx of gadgets due to advancements in technology. Look around you! Everyone you know has a mobile phone. Even children nowadays who are even below the age of 18 have cellphones. My daughter knows what a mobile phone is for and she’s barely 2!
In May 2011, The World Health Organization reclassified cell phone use to the same “carcinogenic hazard” category as lead, engine exhaust and chloroform, and the risks to this type of radiation are most pronounced during pregnancy and early childhood. I remember my mom telling me not to use or stay in front of the microwave and not to play with my iPad (I used to place it on top of my tummy, which was a convenient get-up-and-go “table”…lol) at the time I was pregnant. Now, I realize that it was because of radiation.
What is radiation?
Radiation is energy travelling through space. Studies have shown that electromagnetic radiation at the levels emitted by cell phones, computers, wireless towers, power lines and other devices have an impact on the way cells grow and repair. DNA replicates, sperm forms and even how brain cells function. For pregnant women, research has shown links between cell phone exposure during pregnancy and behavioral problems. Studies of rodents and rabbits have found exposure to pregnant animals results in offspring with fewer brain cells and more damage to their liver, eye and skin.
It’s really scary! I know that technology is still quite new and conclusions if radiation really affects humans or babies or pregnant ladies may even take years to produce valid, repetitive and substantial results, but I would rather be safe than sorry!
With this, for my preggy friends, I found this amazing product that will help reduce the effects of radiation or even totally eliminate it. It’s called Belly Armor!
Belly Armor maternity apparel and accessories shield everyday radiation with up to 99.9% effectiveness. The fabric that they use is called RadiaShield Fabric, which is a highly conductive silver textile with the same shielding properties as a 1/4 inch thick sheet of aluminum and have been independently tested in FCC-certified labs. It’s really quite amazing.
They have this Belly Band that you can wear underneath your dress or shirt or you can opt to purchase this really cute blanket!
It’s impossible in this day and age to do away with gadgets that make life easier so the best that we can do is use technology safely. Here are ways to protect your family from radiation.
Hope I enlightened you one way or the other about radiation and how to protect your baby from it. For more details on the Belly Armor products, please visit Belly Armor Philippines Facebook Page or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org or text them at 0917-8473739.
