Nobody should be forced to wear “Smart” Diapers – especially babies (see 1, 2). Health experts including the American Academy of Pediatrics have been warning for many years that children are more vulnerable to harm caused by wireless radiation exposure. In fact, there is still NO safe level of wireless radiation that has been scientifically determined for children and pregnant women.
Companies including Pampers are launching “smart high tech diapers” with sensors attached to diapers to sense wetness and track urine. The sensors work in concert with a Wi-Fi baby monitor and an app that lets parents keep track of their baby’s diaper situation indicating when the baby needs to be changed.
Parents need to know about safety considerations from electromagnetic exposure when buying wireless tech devices. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends reducing exposure from wireless devices. “They’re not toys. They have radiation that is emitted from them and the more we can keep it off the body and use in other ways, it will be safer,” said Jennifer A. Lowry, M.D.
Placing wireless tech devices next to developing infants’ genitals is SO WRONG! The World Health Organization also lists wireless radiation as a possible “carcinogen,” which means “cancer causing.” Children’s bone marrow absorbs significantly more energy due to their rapidly developing body. There are decades of peer-reviewed studies demonstrating serious biological health effects including immune dysfunction, sleep and memory disturbances, and potential risk of reproductive harm.
We’re asking for your support in letting Pampers know that we find the this product unacceptable. Wireless safety was NEVER tested on children, yet Pampers will be right next to a baby’s reproductive system. Experts advise that parents take precautions. “Until and unless we learn that radiation from portable electronic devices is safe, we should assume that it’s harmful,” says Hugh S. Taylor, M.D., chair of obstetrics and gynecology at Yale School of Medicine.
Huggies also launched a smart diaper in Korea and is planning on bringing to the US soon. Please help us send this message by signing our petition!
