Commercial for Asthma Medication Features Unsafe Use of Technology. Respiratory Health Is Affected by Cell Phone and WiFi Radiation and Electrical Pollution (Electrosmog).

By B.N. Frank

Respiratory health issues are not to be taken lightly.  In this new commercial for asthma medication, most of the actors are using or exposed to digital and/or wireless technology.  At the 47 second mark, there is woman using a laptop on her lap which is a no-no even according to 20+ year old outdated FCC safety standards.

Unfortunately it’s not unusual to see ads, TV programs, and films which feature actors using technology in ways that are not safe because most people in real life do this as well.  Art imitates life.  It’s especially unfortunate though when this is depicted in marketing campaigns for medications.

I already wrote an article about how exposure to cell phone and wireless WiFi radiation (Radio Frequency Radiation) and Electrical Pollution (Electrosmog) can cause or worsen respiratory issues.

Since this particular medication ad features a woman with a laptop in her lap, I’m only going to focus only on how that is unsafe even according to outdated federal safety standards and manufacturer warnings.

In 2010, Lloyd Burrell from ElectricSense produced a video where he measured exposure levels from his laptop. provides more details about harmful exposure and video imaging on laptop computers and tablets. also devotes a page to “The Fine Print Manufacturer Radio Frequency Radiation Warnings.

Here are a examples of manufacturer RF exposure warnings in regard to laptops:

“Usage precautions during 3G connection : Keep safe distance from pregnant women’s stomach or from lower stomach of teenagers. Body worn operation: Important safety information regarding radiofrequency radiation (RF) exposure. To ensure compliance with RF exposure guidelines the Notebook PC must be used with a minimum of 20.8 cm antenna separation from the body.” – Samsung 3G Laptop

During normal operation of notebook computers with displays greater than 30.5 cm (12 inches): To avoid the possibility of exceeding the FCC radio frequency exposure limits, human proximity to the antennas should not be less than 20cm (8 inches), including when the computer display is closed. To identify the location of the wireless antennas, refer to the computer user guides included with your computer.” – HP Chromebook 14 G4

“To maintain compliance with FCC RF exposure compliance requirements please avoid direct contact to the transmitting antenna during transmitting.  End users must follow the specific operating instructions for satisfying RF exposure compliance.” – ASUS Notebook PC for Chromebook

“While installing and operating this transmitter and antenna combination the radio frequency exposure limit of 1mW/cm2 may be exceeded at distances close to the antenna installed. Therefore, the user must maintain a minimum distance of 20cm from the antenna at all times” – Samsung Chromebook

There has recently been more media coverage about concerns due to health risks from exposure to all sources of new technology – especially to children.  The Telecom Industry is being referred to “Big Wireless” and compared to “Big Tobacco” and “Big Oil.”  Many U.S. broadcast stations are running segments about this as well.  People all over the world – including some celebrities – are speaking out and trying to affect change in their communities.

Adverse health effects aren’t limited to respiratory health and cancer risk.  Diagnostic testing is available.

  1. Totally shocked – also the image of the toddler so close to his daddy’s tablet! And the fact that this comes from a “health care” industry. We have identified 2 ads (Kinder and Ariel) from France’s TV channel TF1 showing young children holding a cell phone up to their ear that we be reporting to the regulatory authorities who control advertising.
