This is Amalia’s Story…

amalia

Amalia is almost three and she really loves screens. She loves the way they light up with colour, the way they play music and the way they respond to her own movements. Her mum Sarah tries to limit Amalia’s screen time, but she figures short amounts don’t hurt while they’re in waiting rooms or grocery shopping. Amalia’s a clever little cookie, and she loves to pretend she’s talking on the phone like her parents do. Sometimes, she actually gets to talk to her cousins on her mum’s phone.

 

Mobile Devices and Children

Amalia’s part of the first generation of kids who are exposed to mobile phones and devices from very early on in life. We know that small children have thinner skulls and more fluid in their developing brains, and that they absorb twice the amount of electromagnetic frequency radiation from these devices as adults.

We know that the UK Department of Health recommends that under-16s only use mobile phones when absolutely essential. We also know that the current SAR safety limits in Australia are designed for a 90kg man, and not for an infant.

What we don’t know is how this radiation exposure will affect our kids over the next 40, or even 90 years, because the research simply isn’t there.

So What Can We Do?

Put simply, we want to limit our kids’ exposure to microwave electromagnetic frequency radiation. We can turn on airplane mode while our kids are playing games. We can keep wireless devices away while everyone in the house is asleep. And we can apply Lif3 Smartchips to smart phones to ensure that when we are connected our exposure is reduced by up to 95%* with virtually no loss of signal.

Find your Lif3 Smartchip and do everything you can to protect those brilliant little brains.
