When I became pregnant with my first child, I was a banking executive who was constantly connected to my smart phone and laptop. Like most expectant mothers, I researched extensively on how to give my child the best start in life. All sources advised pregnant women to eat healthily, exercise, and avoid toxins like alcohol and certain chemicals – all of which I did diligently. However, one component in my everyday life which concerned me, about which there was little advice, was the radiation-emitting devices that surrounded me at home and work. What were the health impacts of those?
I researched more into wireless radiation exposure, and was shocked to discover that increasingly more research showed potential health risks from this radiation. The concern is greatest for young children and during pregnancy when DNA replication and cell growth are at their highest rates. Compounding the risk is the exponential growth in wireless technologies over the past decade – today’s children will be exposed to levels of radiation unprecedented in human history. I worry that we are in that gap between scientific knowledge and public awareness. If history is any indication, it can takes decades for scientific evidence to conclusively affirm health risks and form policies to safeguard people (such was the case with tobacco, lead, asbestos, and x-rays).
In light of the emerging evidence and advice from health experts, I felt that more people, particularly those with children, needed to know. Concerned with the lack of awareness and options, my co-founders and I launched Belly Armor with a two-fold mission: (1) To increase awareness of this health issue so families can make more informed decisions, and (2) to provide effective and practical solutions for those wanting to lower their exposure.
No doubt technology has significant benefits for our lives. However, we should be more informed about their potential risks and utilize them more safely. It’s similar to taking simple but risk-reducing actions such as wearing seatbelts and staying within speed limits when driving cars. Many of us were not surrounded by wireless radiation since birth, but our children will be for many more hours each day and many more decades than any of us were ever exposed to during our adult years. By listening to parents' concerns, connecting with the scientific community, and designing practical solutions for our modern lives, today Belly Armor’s website is viewed by people all over the world and our products are sold globally – a testament that people worldwide have similar concerns about wireless radiation. Inspired by the feedback and support from our customers and fans, our Belly Armor team is ever more dedicated to our mission.
