(NaturalNews) As a parent, you certainly only want what is best for your child. Unfortunately, today's highly technological society may be providing you with ways to safeguard your children that can actually harm them. When shopping for products to help keep your baby safe, it may be difficult to differentiate between products that truly protect your child and those that do not. Baby monitors, especially, are known to expose children to radiation that can be very harmful to their development.

The Dangers of Baby Monitors

Being able to listen for your baby while getting other activities accomplished is a wonderful thing, and baby monitors have freed new parents to utilize the little time they have to complete chores, prepare meals, and relax. But many parents are unaware of the damage that baby monitors can do to their developing children.

All electronic devices create electromagnetic fields, or EMFs. These EMFs carry radiation which, over time, can be harmful. Overexposure to EMFs is a large concern in today's society, as the culture seems to continually embrace technological advancement without questioning its consequences. For your baby, this could create serious health risks.

You see, the skulls of small children are not completely formed, leaving their brains more vulnerable to radiation exposure. Because baby monitors are often wireless devices, they emit a great deal of EMFs, as they have to cover an entire area of space and not just the length from one end of a cord to another. To make matters worse, these monitors are often placed next to a baby's crib or bed, making the intensity of the EMF for them even greater.

Is This a Legitimate Concern?

While it is true that the exact health risks have yet to be pinpointed and confirmed by researchers, it is also true that radiation can be highly dangerous. Adults, who suffer from overexposure to EMFs, have complained of several different health problems, ranging in severity from fatigue to cancer. Furthermore, the developing tissues of a baby make young children much more susceptible to the damage that radiation can cause. Though they may be invisible, EMFs are certainly threats that parents should consider before using a baby monitor.

What Can You Do to Keep Your Children Safe?

The best way to protect your kids from EMFs is to use as few electronic devices in your home as possible. This means unplugging, and not just turning off, any electronics that are not in use, such as the television. Furthermore, you should only use baby monitors if it is an absolute necessity.

If you find yourself needing to rely upon a baby monitor, make sure that you do not put it right next to your child's bed or crib. In fact, it is recommended that you place it at least 10 feet from where your baby will be sleeping. It would also be wise to invest in an "on demand" baby monitor, which is activated by sound and only transmits information when there is noise. Though this does not completely avoid exposure to radiation, it will significantly cut down on the EMF levels to which your baby is exposed.
