Health Experts Keep Warning About Kids’ Exposure to Cell Phone and Wireless Radiation.
Those old enough to remember the ’90s could probably never forget P&G’s fat substitute, Olestra, and the gastrointestinal horrors (and jokes) that ensued because of it. Time Magazine listed Olestra as one of the Top 50 worst inventions. CBS News categorized Olestra as an “Epic, Embarrassing Product Failure.”
Even though other countries banned Olestra, the FDA kept it legal in the U.S and eventually companies were allowed to add it to food WITHOUT ANY LABELING. This led to more complaints and a 2006 lawsuit. It doesn’t end there though. 2013 research determined that Olestra might actually make people gain weight not lose it. The following year a “look on the bright side” writer described how it could still be considered beneficial to those who want to thoroughly and painfully rid their bodies of dangerous toxins. You first, Rachel.
The question now is how soon the poop hits the fan after P&G starts selling a more dangerous product – Pampers’ “Smart” Diapers. It’s not breaking news that The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and other health experts have been warning that kids are more vulnerable to cell phone and wireless radiation exposure. Earlier this year 250 scientists signed a petition warning against numerous products that emit Radio Frequency (RF) Radiation and “Smart” diapers are deliberately created to emit that. Even more unsettling, there is no safe level of exposure that has EVER been determined for children or pregnant women. Makes you wonder if P&G has started warning their shareholders that they may eventually be held liable for lawsuits with these “Smart” products. After all, telecom companies have been for many years.
There are also privacy issues. All “Smart” products continuously collect data and manufacturers often sell this data to 3rd parties. This is referred to as “Surveillance Capitalism” and it’s happening more often than you’d think. Exact details about babies’ potty habits and excrement provide very useful information for companies who want to create and market additional products to parents.
Activist Post reports regularly about biological and environmental risks from all sources of wireless radiation exposure. For more information visit our archives and the following links.
