Legal disclaimer: This article is not offered as medical advice. This is a blog based on anecdotal, personal experiences and thoughts.
First, just as a reminder, I’ll always have to be wisely cautious of how much I’m exposed to. I don’t expect everyone to become EMF sensitive. And I do recognize that sometimes, the benefits of using these manmade pulsating frequencies out-weigh the dangers of using them.
But it is a blessing in many ways to have a body that quickly recognizes (within hours) something that is damaging cells.
Some people’s buckets are bigger and they don’t recognize the damage as quickly (or even at all). But I’ve read and heard that it might go on for years and years and then show up in a cancer, for example, where they stored their cell phone or just in cancer in general, especially cancer in children, teens, and young adults.

HOW OFTEN DO WE HEAR OF HOMESCHOOLING KIDS USING WIRELESS TECHNOLOGY TO DO THEIR SCHOOLWORK – for example, laptops on the lap, games, smart phones, ipads, etc.??????? My kids began using the laptop “on wireless” plus were learning how to use a new smart phone that summer that my eyesight started to rapidly deteriorate.
We do want them to have the skill of using modern technology of course, especially in senior school years. But how are we teaching this??? How was I teaching this? I didn’t know better, so I simply had them use it wired or wireless because I didn’t think it mattered and I thought it was all safe for them.
I didn’t know. Most people don’t know either.
So my heart sank as I read a note from another mom recently when she described her young son undergoing lengthy cancer treatments. As he was waiting for his turn, he was playing with his iPad – a common pastime for children these days, isn’t it? It seemed that no one had mentioned to them either about any connection between wireless technology, children, and cancer. I felt I had to let her know – I’d appreciate it if someone told me about stuff like this….
My heart goes out to you in the cancer situation with your son.
In my own learning of EMF sensitivity (which I now have), I’ve sometimes read about the cancer risk and kids – I want to know what our home environment and choices are risking them with.
Please please take time to check these 2 links out as they explain in concise format what might actually help [him].
One of the people involved in our recent situation is not EMF sensitive but he had cancer…. he was given a choice to change his habits and environment to allow his body chance to heal without bombarding it with electro and chemical pollution or to go with chemo – he chose the first option and today is cancer-free. I’m not saying that radiation and chemo can’t help; I believe that it can. However, the body has a greater opportunity to recover and heal when the cells aren’t constantly under attack and needing to repair as a result of the person hitting it more with wireless technology (e.g. iPads, cell phones, wireless games, etc.).
Most people don’t know the official word from the World Health Organization in that WHO has now classified radiofrequency radiation (wireless technology as seen in cell phones, iPAds, etc.) as a Group 2B ‘possible’ human carcinogen. (That classification group of 2B is also where DDT and lead are classsified: reference: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_IARC_Group_2B_carcinogens ). I didn’t know this as a homeschool mom before my situation erupted last year and most moms don’t know this now either.
Here are two links:
In the USA (I’m from Canada), there is a person, Cece Doucette, who is working hard to try to lower the exposures of wireless technology in the school systems with speaking on parents behalf to your country’s congress. Her work is to be applauded. If you search for her name and “how to use an acoustimeter”, you can see/hear what the invisible radiation coming from wireless devices sounds like. (I have one of those gadgets in my home but apparently, she has been trying to get them or similar into public libraries in USA for lending out to families. You might have one in your local library which would be free for you to borrow and test out your home. I don’t think we have that option here in Canada yet.)
Love in Christ,
There are many more places online that discuss the studies with the long-term effects of modern technology. This blog only gives a bit of an introduction, especially for homeschooling families, to begin looking into it for your own sakes.
Here are some questions to think about:
What could the long-term effects of manmade radiation be in your family?
What will the health effects of new and upcoming technology like 5G be like for your family and friends and neighbours?
What will home educated families, who CAN control a certain measure of their environment for the school-day, choose to do with the information they gather on this topic?
I still believe that many aspects of modern technology CAN be very helpful. But how will our next generation be taught with regards to how to use technology as safe as possible?
Can we as homeschool parents educate ourselves and then pass on these necessary skills (like how to set-up a device to be safer and figure out what can be truly optional and not needed) to our kids who will be likely required to use wireless tech in parts of post-secondary education/training and careers? Or learn this type of stuff together? Can we add this “safer use of technology” topic to what many of us are already doing in teaching them about online safety?
And can we teach them to be wise but not to be fearful of the future? I believe we can!
