4.4. Selling toys for infants and toddlers
The iPad, tablets, laptop computers and cellphones are not children’s toys. Within 20 cm of the device, the exposure limit can be exceeded with iPads and laptop computers. Fig. 3, Fig. 4 and Fig. 5 are examples of toys for sale (there are many more similar toys).
The risk to children and adolescent from exposure to microwave radiating devices is considerable. Adults have a smaller but very real risk, as well.
Children absorb greater amount of microwave radiation (MWR) than adults;
- (2) (SMART METERS FALL UNDER THIS CATAGORY)
MWR is a Class 2B (possible) carcinogen as is carbon black, carbon tetrachloride, chloroform, DDT, lead, nickel, phenobarbital, styrene, diesel fuel, and gasoline. It seems clear that we would not expose children to these other agents, so why would we expose children to microwave radiation?
Fetuses are even more vulnerable than children. Therefore pregnant women should avoid exposing their fetus to microwave radiation.
Adolescent girls and women should not place cellphones in their bras or in hijabs.
Cellphone manual warnings make clear an overexposure problem exists.
- (6) (Smart Meters are in this category; being even more dangerous because you cannot turn them off, ever!!! You cannot protect your child from this exposure!!!….Sandaura)
Wireless devices are radio transmitters, not toys. Selling toys that use them should be banned.
Government warnings have been issued but most of the public are unaware of such warnings.
Exposure limits are inadequate and should be revised such that they are adequate.
