Limiting RF-EMF Exposure in Children

 If your kid is less than 10 years old and you are concerned about their exposure radiation. If this is the case, continue reading to learn more about the dangers and benefits of limiting your child's exposure to RF radiation. It's essential to keep the health of your children in mind. in lifestyle can go a long way. RF exposures in children The Dutch ABCD Study and the Spanish INMA Project included two groups of kids, and parents. The study population collected information on the use of screen devices and determined the total exposure to RF-EMF. These exposure amounts were determined using a combined exposure algorithm that took into account the various factors that can influence the exposure of a child. The participants also completed tested for cognitive validity to determine non-verbal and verbal IQ, working memory, attention and task switching as well as cold executive function. visuomotor coordination, as well as processing speed. The study assessed the environmental EMF exposure of 529 children across five European countries. The exposure levels measured in the children ranged from 87.5 MHz to 6 GHz. Children wore portable experimenters that monitored their exposures while playing outdoors and playing with handheld devices. They were also required to complete questionnaires and activity journals to record the amount of time they spent on their devices on their phones. The overall exposure to RF-EMF was very low, ranging between 0.13% to 0.92 percent in the range of ICNIRP's reference levels per second. The study participants were also less likely to make use of smartphones than adult users, and a majority of them using phones for less than five minutes in the afternoon times. The FCC established limits on the RF radiation levels that children must be exposed to in daily life. However, this limit was established over 25 years ago, so the FCC must consider current scientific research and update its limits to protect children's health. The limits for exposure to radiofrequency (RF) should be lower than the federal limit, which is 0.4 mW/kg. Children's exposure to radiofrequency radiation is mostly based on their torso and abdominal region. In the ICNIRP guidelines should specify the limits for exposure to various body parts of children. They should also provide the safety margins for each zone. These are not the only data that must be included in the research.
