Our bodies are exposed to natural radiation every day, such as sunshine on your face or sticking your toes in soil. Today, we are also exponentially more exposed to the man-made radiation from modern technologies like cell phones, laptops, Wi-Fi and microwave ovens.
Although these types of technologies are used around the clock, most people don't think about the EMF radiation they are continuously emitting. Most of us are now constantly surrounded by EMF radiation at levels that are unprecedented and still growing, given the exponential growth in the use of wireless technologies over the last 20 years.
Radiation, in the simplest terms, is energy traveling through space or materials and comes in two main forms: non-ionizing and ionizing.
Non-ionizing radiation: includes radio waves, microwaves (cell phones, laptops, tablets, computers, wi-fi and other wireless smart devices), infrared, visible and uv. Belly Armor products shield against this type of radiation using proprietary RadiaShield® Fabric (within the ~50dB range).
Ionizing radiation: includes high-energy radiation like x-rays and gamma rays. This type of radiation is commonly known to be very dangerous even in small doses. Belly Armor products do not shield against this type of radiation.
The diagram below shows the Electromagnetic Spectrum. Of increasing concern to our health today is microwave radiation (often referred to as EMF radiation, radio frequency or RF radiation, and wireless radiation) -- more and more research is beginning to show adverse health impacts of this radiation, which we are exponentially more exposed to do with the proliferation of wireless technologies in our daily lives.
