Belly Armor

bellyarmor2

Heard of Belly Armor? They make a beautiful collection of apparel & accessories that shield everyday radiation with 99.9% effectiveness.

Belly Armor products are made with RadiaShield® Fabric, a highly conductive silver textile with the same shielding properties as a 1/4-inch thick sheet of aluminum. It shields by neutralizing incoming electromagnetic waves, canceling out the ambient radiation and reducing your exposure.

Belly Armor makes a beautiful collection of products including belly bands, maternity tops, nursing covers, men’s boxer briefs, baby monitors, and blankets. The blankets are perfect for laptop users! In fact I just got one for my 5 year old daughter. She uses a laptop to do her homework about once/week and I love that she is protected!

What are the health risks during pregnancy?
Today, the evidence remains mixed. Radiation has long been cited as a health risk to young children and developing fetuses, but scientific experts still debate the nature and extent of that risk. Because the dangers caused by radiation can take years to show their effects in young children, the risks during pregnancy from radiation are difficult to pinpoint and represent increased probabilities of health impacts developing over time.

However, many health experts and governments recommend applying the “precautionary principle” towards these risks until we know more. Parallels have been drawn to other toxins such as tobacco and asbestos, which took decades for policy and awareness to catch up with emerging scientific evidence. Most scientists agree that more studies must take place with large populations over extended periods of time, but funding for such studies has been limited.

5 Easy Tips to Protect Yourself from Everyday Radiation

1. DISTANCE – Keep your cell phone, computer and other electronics from being in direct contact with your body. (Read the fine print that comes with your cell phone – most manufacturers direct you to always keep 1/2 – 1-inch between yourself and your phone.) You can do this by:

Using earphones and speaker phones (but be sure to keep the phone away from your pregnant belly as well).
Don’t place laptops or tablet computers directly on your body, especially your pregnant belly – and if you must, then use a pillow between the device and your body.
Don’t carry your cell phone right next to your body – carry it in your bag instead. If you don’t have a bag and must put it in your pocket, face the front to your body so the radiation is directed away from you or turn it to airplane mode.
Text instead of calling, but be sure to keep your phone away from your pregnant belly.
Don’t sleep with your phone under your pillow or close to you on the night stand.
2. AIRPLANE MODE – Turning your device to airplane mode turns off the cellular and wireless signals. If your child must use a cell phone or tablet computer, switch it to airplane mode. Any time you don’t need your device to be on (especially if you are carrying it next to your body), turn it to airplane mode (this will also save battery life).

3. LIMIT TIME – When possible, limit your time using your cell phone and other devices. Use a corded landline for long calls.

4. BUY SMART – Not all cell phones are created equal. The radiation emitted varies significantly between them. Cell phone manufacturers are required by law to list a measure known as the SAR (specific absorption rate) of the phone, which is a measure of the radiation absorbed by the user. CNET, Environmental Working Group, and others keep up-to-date compilations of the best and worst phones for radiation emission and can be found by searching for “cell phone SAR ratings”. However, regardless of the SAR, avoid using cell phones directly next to the body.

5. SHIELDING – Shielding is a safe and convenient way to reduce radiation exposure while you are using radiation emitting devices, as well as helping to reduce ambient radiation from cell phone towers and wireless networks. Reducing this exposure is especially important during times of high risk – pregnancy, early childhood, and even while trying to conceive.
