Are Digital Baby Monitors Safe for Children?from: Maxx Family Life
These days almost everything has gone digital. This includes cellular phones, computers and even simple household appliances, such as telephones and microwaves, all of which have switched to digital technology. However, some are concerned whether these hi-tech gadgets are safe for our health, especially gadgets, such as baby monitors, that are often placed in close proximity to children.
Many parents are concerned that if they use a digital monitor to help keep an eye on their child, they might expose their kids to too much electromagnetic radiation which might cause damage to a child's nervous system. Children are much more prone to damage since their systems are still developing. So is it really safe to use digital baby monitors?
What is Electro-SMOG and How Could It Threaten Your Health?
Electro-SMOG is the electromagnetic energy that is emitted by common gadgets in our home such as our TVs, cordless phones, microwaves and digital baby monitors. Studies have been done claiming that too much exposure to electro-SMOG can result to health problems affecting the nervous system of the body. A person may have initial symptoms of headaches, disruptive sleep patterns, chronic fatigue and abnormal behavioral patterns in children.
How Are Baby Monitors Different from Other Gadgets with Electro-smog?
Due to the huge possibility of the electromagnetic energy used in the digital technology of modern baby monitors, a lot of parents are fearful for the safety of their child. On the other hand, manufacturing companies of these digital monitors claim the amount of radiation their baby monitors emit are at levels that don't pose serious danger to children.
Phillips is one of these manufacturing companies that claims the level of electro-smog released by their gadgets are 10,000 times lower from the safety norms accepted internationally. The company also adds a recommendation that for parents to have total peace of mind, they can position the monitoring device at least a meter away from the child.
Going digital in such technologies has many benefits, but there really are minimal risks involved. The digital models of baby monitors have proven over the years to be better in reception when compared to that of the older analog version. These models hare also much better at providing privacy for the family. However, for many parents who are concerned with the safety of their child, switching to modern technology can be frightening.
But as long as you knows how to set certain prevention methods, such as placing the monitor at a safe distance from the baby (at least one meter) and not adding a lot of other appliances inside the baby's room, such as TVs or computers, then any harm to a child's health is greatly prevented.
The greater the distance of the monitor from the child, there's a greater reduction of the amount of exposure to radiation. Most manufacturers have also improved their products to make them less of a health threat.
