DefenderShield’s CEO and resident EMF expert Daniel DeBaun was recently featured in a Forbes article: Technology World Explores Impact on Student Health.”

Daniel, who started DefenderShield more than 10 years ago to educate and protect people from the negative effects of EMF radiation exposure, sat down with Rob Berger to discuss the topic of wireless EMF radiation emitting from mobile devices, wireless networks, and WiFi routers. They focus on the increasing levels of EMF exposure in schools, how children are more vulnerable to EMF radiation, and what led Dan to develop DefenderShield’s world-leading shielding technologies.

Rod Berger is an education and health care industry strategist having covered thought leadership and entrepreneurship for Forbes, Entrepreneur Magazine, Scholastic and Huff Post. He serves as an Advisory Board Member with Stand Up & Learn, and he is the host of On Balance–a podcast where he indulges in conversations around the world of education, and explores the stories of today with the influential personalities impacting tomorrow. 

The Forbes article, titled, “Technology World Explores Impact on Student Health,” dives deep into a number of recent studies and statistics done on EMFs and the health impacts that can potentially affect the everyday technology user. 

They go on to talk about how EMFs may or may not be affecting our children who go to school in an environment where they are constantly surrounded by WiFi and technology. In the interview, DeBaun states, “Little children have craniums that are soft and not as dense. So while a signal might enter an adult male’s skull about one to two inches, it goes completely through a six-year-old. So, the question might be, what happens to a six-year-old when a cell signal goes entirely through? Unfortunately, we don’t know because the technology hasn’t been around long enough to fully determine the effect and show correlating statistics.”

There’s no doubt that technology has become a staple in our everyday lives, but what is this constant exposure doing to our long-term health and well-being? DeBaun responds, “Ten to fifteen years ago, we didn’t have all these devices around us. We didn’t have a problem as a society. Today, we have many transmitting devices in the same room. Is there an impact? Science says there is, but statistics have yet to catch up to demonstrate the level of significance.”

It is clear that the effects of EMF exposure are not fully understood but need to be addressed through further examination and education.
