According to the World Health Organization, radiation is one of the leading environmental hazards that we face. With so many devices emitting radiation these days, it’s hard to know which ones are safe and which ones aren’t. In this blog post, we’ll take a look at baby monitors and whether or not they emit radiation. We’ll also provide some tips on how to reduce your child’s exposure to radiation. Stay safe!

Are Baby Monitors Safe Radiation

The World Health Organization has issued a warning to the world about the dangers of radiation. The organization states that exposure to radiation has been linked to many health issues including cancer, infertility, immune system damage and more. Many parents are unaware that their household devices emit radiation, which makes it even more important for them to be informed.

Baby monitors can emit electromagnetic radiation. When a baby monitor is on, it emits radiation so that parents can listen to their children from another room. Unfortunately, it’s hard to be certain if a baby monitor emits enough radiation for us to worry about.

Tips to reduce child’s exposure to radiation

However, there are some tips you can follow to reduce your child’s exposure.

  • First, try not to keep your baby monitor on all of the time. When you’re not actively using it, keep it off to reduce exposure.
  • Second, try to keep the device away from your child whenever possible.
  • You can buy covers for your baby monitor that block the signal if you need to place it close to them for any reason.
  • Finally, replace older monitors with newer models. Older monitors may emit more radiation than newer ones.

If you’re still worried about your baby monitor emitting radiation, it might be a good idea to get rid of it altogether. You can use the money that you would have spent on replacing batteries or buying covers to buy an audio-only monitor instead. Audio monitors are wireless devices that emit no radiation at all so you can keep your baby safe without worrying about exposing them to radiation.

Talking Point

So are baby monitors safe?

The short answer is that there’s not really enough information out there for us to know one way or another. Research is finding more correlations between low-level radiation exposure and health issues but the studies are still ongoing. With that said, there are some ways you can reduce exposure to baby monitor radiation including using your monitor sparingly and buying replacement covers.
