Research on Kids’ Exposure to Screens and Smartphones Literally Doesn’t Paint a Pretty Picture

Research has determined that children’s use of smartphones and other screens as well as their exposure to blue light, cell phone and Wi-Fi radiation and other Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) is harmful to their health. American Academy of Pediatrics and other health experts have been warning about this for years. In fact, American tech insiders (aka “Silicon Valley Parents”) have taken considerable measures to limit their own kids’ use and exposure to screens. This has included sending them to private low-tech or no-tech schools, requiring nannies to sign “No Screens” contracts, and spying on nannies to make sure they don’t break them (see 1, 2).

In August 2021, a federal court ruled in favor of petitioners (including Environmental Health Trust) who sued the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for not protecting Americans from harmful wireless radiation exposure. More recently, petitioners submitted a new filing asking again that the FCC review scientific evidence and establish protective radiation exposure limits.

Thanks to Environmental Health Trust for providing resources – including this new weblink and artwork – to help raise awareness.
