How to Teach Kids RF Safety with Home/Classroom Experiments

rfsafe-led-rf-meter-diy-kitParents of today’s children are not grasping the seriousness of accumulated exposure to wireless radiation — most notably this includes all of our beloved wireless gadgets that transmit RF energy in the microwave spectrum.   Exposure to microwaves from commercial grade Wifi routers, or even cell phone towers erected covertly on school property needs to also be a great concern for parents, teachers and school boards everywhere.

There are over 1,000 peer-reviewed scientific studies that link the impacts of wireless radiation to serious health problems including cancerneurological diseaseimmune dysfunction, disruption of the blood-brain-barrierDNA damageinfertility, and statistically significant neurological and cognitive disorders such as headaches, dizziness, tremors, decreased memory and attention, autonomic nervous system dysfunction, decreased reaction times, sleep disturbances, and visual disruptions.

Even more frightening….. Children ARE at greater risk!

[pullquote]”Radiation exposures are higher for children than adults because children have thinner skulls, and their brains have higher water and higher ion (charged particle) content…these three factors enhance radiation penetration.” – Pediatr Nurs. 2013;39(2):65-70[/pullquote]

“When electrical properties are considered, a child’s head’s absorption can be over two times greater, and absorption of the skull’s bone marrow can be ten times greater than adults. Therefore, a new certification process is needed that incorporates different modes of use, head sizes, and tissue properties.” Electromagn Biol Med. 2012 Mar;31(1):34-51

Therefore, parents and teachers have a responsibility to educate children about the inherent risk of wireless radiation exposure, and starting with very basic fundamentals of radio-frequency radiation can be a very fun and exciting way of doing this.

It can be hard enough to keep children safe from harmful substances even when the danger is clearly visible.  Microwaves present a problem in that they can’t be touched, seen, heard, smelled or tasted, but this invisible radiant energy has shown enough biological effects that the World Health Organization labeled wireless radiation a class 2b carcinogen in 2011.

Wireless power or wireless energy transmission is the transmission of electrical energy from a power source to an electrical load without man-made conductors. The most important inventor responsible for discovering the amazing possibilities of wireless technology is Nikola Tesla.  In 1894, Tesla erects his first small radio station in his laboratory and begins his experiments in radio frequency technology that brings us where we are today.

    I find this article to be a valuable resource for parents and educators alike. The fact that children are at a greater risk of harm from wireless radiation exposure is concerning, and it highlights the need for increased awareness and education about the issue.

    The suggestion of teaching children about RF safety through home and classroom experiments is an excellent approach. Making the topic fun and engaging will not only help children understand the risks associated with wireless radiation, but it will also encourage them to be more mindful of their exposure to it.

    One question that comes to mind is whether there are any particular experiments that are more effective than others in teaching children about RF safety. It would be interesting to see some examples of successful experiments that have been used in the past, and how they have impacted children’s understanding of the issue.

    Overall, I believe that educating children about RF safety is an important step in protecting their health and wellbeing. By using fun and engaging experiments, we can help children understand the risks associated with wireless radiation and empower them to make informed decisions about their exposure to it.
