Living in the modern age of technology, it’s virtually impossible to avoid the exposure to radiation. Today, wireless devices and cell phones are everywhere, so even if you aren’t using one, you are still exposed.
Aside from the wide misconception that ipads or other tablets don’t emit much radiation, there’s growing evidence that links wireless radiation to leukemia, autism, ADHD, cancer, and Alzheimer’s.
And according to the World Health Organization, wireless radiation has been classified as a potential carcinogen, being ranged in the same class with DDT, lead, and tailpipe exhaust in terms of ability to cause cancer.
On the other hand, non-ionizing or microwave radiation not only damages the brain, but also the sperm of lab animals. For one thing, tablets are microwave transmitters, which means every few seconds they send out short but strong bursts of pulsed radiation. And this radiation can pose serious risks on children’s rapidly-developing nervous and immune systems, resulting in brain maturation and reproductive damage. What this microwave radiation does is disturb DNA, deteriorate the brain’s protecting barrier, and discharge highly reactive and damaging free radicals. Sadly, the bone marrow of a child’s head absorbs 10 times more radiation than an adult, whereas those of infants and toddlers even more.
According to research, adults who have consistently used wireless gadgets for at least ten years are at a greater risk of brain cancer (glioma and acoustic neuroma), salivary gland cancer, and even rare eye cancers on that side of the head where the cell phone was most held (Davis, 2010). Moreover, a number of men diagnosed with testicular cancer had the cancer appear in the testicle closest to the pant pocket where they usually kept their cell phone (Davis, 2013).
Ways to reduce your EMF exposure when using an iPad or other Tablets:
- Try to use your iPad tablet on airplane mode and Wi-Fi to Off as this will stop the connection radiation.
- Avoid using your iPad on your lap. Hold it further away from the body as every inch decreases the power of radiation exposure to a greater extent.
- Reduce the time spent using wireless devices.
