‘Electromagnetic’ threat in children locked up at home

Thousands of children under the age of 18 who have been studying distance education for a year and are able to go out during limited hours; While becoming addicted to mobile phones, tablets, computers and televisions, experts warned that children who are locked at home are exposed to serious electromagnetic pollution.

Underlining that wireless internet systems should be kept at least one meter away from children, experts drew attention that the state of fatigue, weakness, anorexia, insomnia, concentration disorder, reaction and irritability seen in children recently is caused by exposure to electromagnetic pollution for a long time.


According to the report of Milliyet newspaper, İzmir Katip Çelebi University Head of Department of Child Health and Diseases Prof. Dr. Bumin Dündar said, “The amount of dose taken in exposure to electrical and electromagnetic fields (ie, the violence, the duration of exposure and the type of radiation determine the degree of this damage. Children should not have electrical devices other than lighting lamps in their bedrooms. Families with children should prefer wired internet connection.”

Süleyman Demirel University Faculty of Engineering Faculty Member Prof. Dr. Selçuk Çömlekçi pointed out that problems such as developmental disorders and low birth weight may occur in babies, especially if they are exposed to electromagnetic pollution continuously during pregnancy, “Children’s beds should be away from windows and electrical outlets. Hair drying machines should not be used in children. Electric blankets or electric bed type heaters in children. “Modems with wireless feature should be at least one meter away from the closest living point”, he said.


Akdeniz University Engineering Faculty Electrical and Electronics Department academic staff member Prof. Dr. Şükrü Özne also made the following determinations:

“We are faced with a situation that is really risky and will lead to new health problems. We must be protected from electronic devices and wave pollution that will damage the biological development of children in the developmental age and cause damage to their eye tissues. Mobile phones are in the most dangerous class in the electro-magnetic security concept. Wireless connection is low power. Although it spreads 24 hours, it causes continuous exposure, albeit at a low level in terms of duration. We will see the effects of electromagnetic pollution that children are exposed to during the pandemic period in the coming years.
