Pregnant women and mobile radiation
As much as possible, pregnant women should take special precautions from mobile radiation in order to protect their fetus.
Research results clearly prove how fetuses but also infants are far more exposed to mobile radiation than previously known. With lab tops and especially iPads and tablets now being household items this field has become indisputably relevant
Advice for pregnant women and their families:
- Avoid use of mobile phones and any other wireless installations during the pregnancy in the same way e.g. alcohol and tobacco are avoided.
- Never place the lab top/PC in your lab and keep a distance between the wireless device and the belly or use the RadiCover iPad anti-radiation cover.
- Avoid use of wireless baby monitors as these emit mobile radiation - or use the RadiCover Baby Monitor Bag
- Never use the mobile or wireless devices when nursing and holding your baby - or use a RadiCover Mobile Covers
- Avoid using mobile or wireless devices in direct proximity of pregnant women or infants.
