You know how your laptop gets warm on your lap? Well that's the
radiation I'm talking about. So how can a blanket protect you from radiation? The answer is simple. Belly Armor is made with
RadiaShield fabric, a lightweight armor like textile woven from 80% silver. The
result is a high performance radiation guard blanket that's comfortable, very
light and easy to take with you.
Belly Armor is recommended for use during pregnancy to protect you from everyday exposure to radiation - otherwise known as electromagnetic radiation field (EMF) from electronic devises - that omit from cell phones and laptops (as well as microwaves, PDA's and portable media devices).
A recent and very interesting study conducted by WHO (World Health Organization) states: "Tissue heating is the principal mechanism of interaction between radiofrequency energy and the human body. Electromagnetic fields of all frequencies represent one of the most common and fastest growing environmental influences, about which anxiety and speculation are spreading. All populations are now exposed to varying degrees of EMF (Electromagnetic Fields), and the levels will continue to increase as technology advances.”
Belly Armor blankets block between
90 and 99.9 percent of electromagnetic radiation. The idea behind Belly Armor
is to neutralize environmental radiation before it reaches the fetus. However,
I'm not pregnant (my baby is one and I have a six year old), but I use my
blanket when I sit on the sofa at night and I'm on my laptop.
But I was online
all the time pregnant looking at baby and pregnancy websites after website. I
have started to bring it to work (yes, I do have an actual job in addition to
my blog and website - I'm a TV producer and need to frequently be on my laptop
looking at footage and writing scripts). I also bring the blanket with me when
I travel. It can easily pack flat with my macbook in a lap top bag or tote. Its' uses don't stop there, I've been wrapping my head to protect my ear -
which also gets hot when I talk on the ph. Okay, this I admit does look
ridiculous so I've limited that use to the privacy of my home, and I try my
hardest to wear my ear piece when I'm out on location and without my children
who tend to grab the ear pierce. If my six year old son is using my laptop I
place the blanket over his lap before he plays on it. My husband has also
started using it at home on his lap - he'll need to get his own soon! You can
literally feel the difference. You can also do your own cell phone test by
simply wrapping the phone in the blanket - note your cell signal, then wait
30secs. The signal will go down or disappear. So I'm obviously not wrapping the
phone to speak on it, but rather my head with the blanket.
Dr. Keith Black, a surgeon at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, says: “I think the safe practice is to use an earpiece so you keep the microwave antenna away from your brain.”
Other recent studies and research conducted over the past 25 years into low-level radiation exposure has shown indications of many potential health impacts, including: infertility (in men and women), birth defects and genetic disruptions, miscarriages, autism, childhood leukemia, and cancer. Because the speculated health effects impact cell growth and DNA replication, pregnancy and early childhood represent the highest risks.
No I'm not a germaphobe nor do I go
to extreme lengths to wrap myself and my children in silver chain mail to
protect from EMF, but I've always thought there was something weird about food
cooking so quickly in a microwave then cooling rock hard, or my lap, hand and
head getting warm from talking on the phone and using my laptop. It’s
In my opinion, you can never be too cautious when it comes to your own health and that of your children. In the 1950's cigarettes were once thought to be harmless and everybody enjoyed a smoke. Fifteen years on, evidence proved otherwise. I believe we're still the infancy stage with electronic devices, and as more studies are conducted linking cancer, and other mutations in the body to radiation, what harm can come from using a blanket that shields your body from potentially harmful long-term results.
This is an amazing product that I
hope you find as useful as I do. If you’re interested in purchasing, please
