That baby monitor you think is protecting your baby is actually endangering their health and possibly even their lives
I don’t want to alarm you….
I take that back, I do want to alarm you, this is serious and you should be alarmed.
If there is a baby monitor in your home, you could be endangering the very life you are trying to protect.
This idea first came to our attention when we received a number of recent press releases from the World Health Organization and the Parliamentary Assembly Council of Europe that brought new focus to the issue of Electromagnetic Radiation and Radio Frequency waves and how they affect our health.
In reading The Council of Europe, Parliamentary Assembly statement I stopped in shock when I read this statement
“potential health risks of DECT-type wireless telephones, baby monitors and other domestic appliances which emit continuous pulse waves, if all electrical equipment is left permanently on standby,
and recommend the use of wired, fixed telephones at home or, failing that, models which do not permanently emit pulse waves;” Read the entire statement on the affects of Electromagnetic Radiation
I’m a new grandmother of a beautiful baby boy born in May 2011. I recently purchased BioElectric Room Shields for the baby's room, his parent's room and the living room where they watch TV and use laptops while playing with and nursing the baby. That was before I knew the baby monitor was an issue. I did however, know that the computers, wi-fi and electronics were possible problems and have even been linked to ADD and other issues, and wanted to protect against those things.
After reading the press release I started researching the subject more and found articles dating back to 2006 all stating that monitors were dangerous.
Baby’s brains are thinner and more at risk from EMF, I’m newly alarmed at the danger we place our children in while thinking we are protecting them. The danger doesn't stop with the baby monitor, it's surrounding our babies even better than the warmest blankets, our technology is everywhere.
BioElectric Shield has been a pioneer in the field of Electromagnetic Radiation Protection since 1990. We’ve written and shared countless articles discussing the detrimental effects of our technology, specifically focusing on computers, wi-fi and cell phones. We’ve shared countless articles about dirty electricity, electromagnetic sensitivity as a growing illness and other variations on this subject. We know that anything that plugs in or has a battery is putting out radio frequencies, EMF radiation, that isn’t healthy and that is probably putting you at risk for cancer, but also causing other more immediate issues. It’s hard to know all this and see how few of you are taking it seriously.
But we really can’t blame you, the World Health Organization sets much of the policy for Health around the globe and until now they’ve been saying there’s just not enough proof and that they didn’t feel it was a serious issue. So if one of the most influential health organizations in the world, says "don’t worry about it", most people won’t.
Last month's News from the World Health Organization (WHO) and a few other sources, has changed that viewpoint.
World Health Organization (WHO) has come on board and said that Cell-phones very possibly do cause cancer,
and that since it's a cumulative effect it wise to take precautions now. They’re taking the position that it's like we're in the early days when we first discovered smoking and asbestos and a lot of other toxins were harmful, the evidence isn't huge, YET, but give it a decade or two.

Another surprising announcement from WHO states that Electromagnetic Sensitivity is a health issue.
The World Health Organization has released their findings that between 3 and 6% of the population is ill from electromagnetic sensitivity, but these numbers are growing continuously and upwards of 30% are affected and don't even know it.
It may be hard to be concerned about "far in the future" issues like cancer. however, there are numerous conditions and problems associated with Electromagnetic Sensitivity that can be fairly immediate. How would you react, though if you knew that it's possible that this same exposure puts your child at risk of developing Autism, or may be affecting their focus and showing up as ADD/ADHD?
Here are just a few articles on the relationship between autism and EMF
Pregnant mothers using cell phones are 40 percent more likely to have children with behavioral problems.
This article is discussing the issue of pregnancy and cell phones, but just because the baby has been born doesn't reduce the risk or the possible inter-relationships between EMF and ADD/ADHD and autism.
