Newborns today will be exposed to radiofrequency radiation (RFR) from birth to death. We don’t know what the long-term health consequences are from this exposure. We can’t see, touch, taste, feel, or smell RFR , but it is all around us.Children get exposure to radiofrequency radiation from baby monitors, cell phones; cordless phones; cell phone towers, video game controllers; e-readers; Wi-Fi at home, Wi-Fi in schools, stores, libraries, restaurants, and cars. When they reach adulthood, today’s children will have a much higher cumulative exposure to RF fields than today’s adults.

According to a 2005 research study, The Sensitivity of Children to Electromagnetic Fields, in Pediatrics, the journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics, "Regarding the long-term health effects of mobilephone use, the paucity of data, particularly for children, suggests that low-cost precautionary measures are appropriate. Physicians could advise parents that their children’s RF exposure can be reduced by restricting the length of calls or by using hands-free devices to keep mobile phones away from the head and body."

Barrie Trower, retired British military expert who specializes in microwave radiation, concludes that there is no safety level for microwave radiation for children. Decide for yourself the safe level of wireless radiation for kids.

During the June 8, 2015 edition of the Dr. Oz Show, Dr. Oz asked viewers to report how many wireless devices their children use. The survey results indicated that 65% of viewers' children use 2 or more wireless devices. Yet, the show interviewed Lynn Porter, MD, a pediatrician who expressed concern about the long-term health effects of wireless radiation on children.
