Beyond Digital Addiction: Your Kids May Be Affected by Wi-Fi and Electronic Devices Even If You Aren’t

By Hope S. Good

Emotional, Mental and Physical Health may be affected.  Symptoms May Not Be Immediate.  Misdiagnosis is Common.  Medication offers no cure. 

Just last week, The California Department of Public Health’s decision to issue formal warnings and guidelines in regard to cell phone radiation made international news:

In 2011, The World Health Organization also issued similar warnings when they categorized cell phone radiation as a possible carcinogen.  “WHO: Cell phone use can increase possible cancer risk.”   In regard to children, Dr. Keith Black, Chairman of Neurology at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center stated:

Children’s skulls and scalps are thinner. So the radiation can penetrate deeper into the brain of children and young adults. Their cells are at a dividing faster rate, so the impact of radiation can be much larger.

Cell phones aren’t the only source of RadioFrequency (RF) Radiation.  RF isn’t the same as the radio waves.  RF is actually Microwave Radiation like what cooks food in microwave ovens.

Over the last 20 years, electrical pollution from many sources (including cell phone radiation) has increased significantly.  This type of pollution is also sometimes referred to as “Electrosmog.”

Antennas, broadcast and cell towers, cell phones, cordless landline phones, CFL and LED lightbulbs, power lines, utility “Smart” meters, Wi-Fi routers,  “Smart” appliances and watches, FitBits, Wi-Fi hot spots, and more emit EMF, otherwise known as electromagnetic fields.

According to 2010 article, “Is Electrosmog Harming Our Health?”

Experts say up to 3% of all people are clinically hypersensitive, as many as one-third of us to a lesser degree. (emphasis added)

That’s as many as one in every 3 people.  Even if you don’t think this is you, it still may be someone you love.

ElectroSensitivity symptoms vary.  Many pediatricians aren’t considering Electrosmog as a contributor to poor or worsening health.  Genetics don’t necessarily play a role.  Misdiagnosis is common.  Medication offers no cure.

Frank Clegg, former longtime president of Microsoft Canada, is now one of the world’s leading advocates for wireless safety.  In 2014, he stated:

Electrosensitivity is not like an allergy you are born with; it is an illness that builds up over increased time and radiation exposure. Just as we cannot yet explain why some individuals will die from second-hand smoke and others can live a long life smoking 2 packs a day, we cannot explain why some individuals react to wireless radiation. (Source)

If you notice any of the following symptoms in your child, this may be due to one or many sources of Electrosmog:

  1. ADD/ADHD, and Other Learning Disabilities
  2. Asthma, Coughing and Other Respiratory Issues
  3. Behavioral and Mood Issues, Changes
  4. Blood Pressure Issues
  5. Cancer
  6. Cardiac Issues and Heart Arrhythmia
  7. Confusion, Loss of Concentration Loss
  8. Dental Issues
  9. Diabetes, Blood Sugar Fluctuations
  10. Endocrine and Thyroid Issues
  11. Diarrhea, Nausea and Other Digestive Issues
  12. Disorientation, Dizziness and Balance Issues
  13. Fatigue
  14. Food Sensitivities
  15. Hair Loss or Thinning
  16. Hearing Issues, Sensitivity to Noise
  17. Headaches
  18. Insomnia, Changes in Sleep Habits
  19. Learning Disabilities
  20. Memory Loss
  21. Muscular Weakness and Failure
  22. Nose Bleeds
  23. Pain
  24. Sensitivity to Light
  25. Sinus Issues and Allergies
  26. Skin Issues, Rashes
  27. Urinary Issues, Frequency, Incontinence, Infections
  28. Vision Issues and Poor Eye Health

Since up to 1/3 of the population is ElectroSensitive” to a “lesser” degree, that leaves many of us suffering with symptoms we probably wish we weren’t.  Animals are affected by Electrosmog also:

Watching children suffer is difficult.  The good news is that ElectroSensitivity can be reduced if not completely eliminated by making some changes in our homes and in our communities.  Here are some organizations with more information:

Lately there has been widespread media coverage about children and digital addiction:

At the same time, this isn’t breaking news.  It was reported in 2013 that one US hospital had started treating Americans for this type of addiction:

We have more Electrosmog now than we did in 2010.  Denial isn’t just a river in Egypt.  For more information, visit the following links:
