Tablets now have a role in our daily lives. The last time I went to the doctor, I checked in on a tablet. I’m guilty of giving my toddler a tablet occasionally, so she’ll sit still in her car seat and in the cart at the grocery store.
I have tablets at my office, and my elementary schooler uses them in his library at school. Yet, as tablets have been developed in the last 15 years, the health impacts aren’t as well-known. So, I’ve found it’s worth doing my own research.
It turns out that Electromagnetic Radiation (EMF) packs quite a punch, and once I read about some of the possible links to health conditions, I couldn’t get it out of my head.
Do iPads and tablets emit EMF radiation? As part of their design, both iPads and tablets emit EMF radiation, which has been linked to adverse health effects. Although the radiation itself is low, it’s consistent. This means that our constant interaction with these devices may be doing more harm than good.
iPad and Tablet Radiation Symptoms
Are you experiencing unexplained symptoms that don’t seem to correlate to anything? It turns out that you may be experiencing EMF radiation, also known as iPad and tablet radiation, symptoms.
These symptoms appear like the symptoms of numerous other health conditions but have roots in exposure to electronics. Examples of symptoms that can occur due to iPad and tablet radiation include:
- Body pains and muscle aches
- Burning sensations in the eyes
- Prickling of the face
- Burning of the skin
- Sleep disturbances
- Foggy thinking
For many people, these symptoms can easily be mistaken as issues related to some other health concern. For instances, for parents like myself, who isn’t constantly fatigued or stressed when juggling the every days of having a family?
Often, foggy thinking comes with that as well. Athletes may mistake their body pains and muscles aches as related to their practice, and others may believe they have a skin issue. Yet, in reality, all of these issues are related to iPad and tablet use. If you have any of these symptoms, consider if they could be related to the use of your tablet!
Dangers Of Ipad And Tablet Radiation
One of the greater problems with iPad and tablet radiation is that it isn’t just a symptomatic disease. While stress and foggy thinking are inconvenient, they won’t kill you…at least not in their simplest form.
iPad and tablet radiation gets complicated, however, when you add in the other illnesses that it can cause. Here are some examples:
- Fertility issues in both men and women
- Leukemia in children
- Breast cancer in women
- Cancer clusters related to high exposure to EMF
Worse than you probably thought, right? No one wants to get involved in anything related to cancer, and fertility issues are heartbreaking! These illnesses are all related to exposure of EMF, which unfortunately means the more you use your tablet or iPad, the more at risk you are for the above.
Ipad And Tablet Radiation Protection Tips
Luckily, even with the symptoms and illnesses that iPad and tablet radiation cause, you can still protect yourself!
Let’s face it, even reading this, you likely didn’t go to find your tablets and throw them out. I know that wasn’t my first reaction. I first thought, “Wow, that’s terrible, but I can’t live without my tablets…what will I do?!”
Here’s what you do! Just follow the protection tips I have listed below and you will be good to go.
- Get EMF radiation protection/shielding cases
- Keep your iPad or tablet in airplane mode
- Avoid using the ipad or tablet in the car
- Say no to iPad and tablets in the bedroom
- Get an EMF radiation protective bed canopy
- An ‘EMF friendly’ diet
Keep reading to find out the concrete solutions that can keep you and your loved ones safe.
1. Get Emf radiation protection/shielding cases
Get your iPad or tablet a SafeSleeve shielding case that significantly reduces the harmful EMF radiation for your body. It promises to stop 99 percent of EMF radiation from reaching your lap which means you can feel better about potential fertility issues and cancers.
What’s also great is that it doubles as a case and provides you a way to protect your iPad/tablet and yourself from harm. It has a sleek design and has a variety of sizes to fit any tablet.
You’ll benefit from the functional design that allows you to hold your tablet on your lap or stand it upright. If you’re not satisfied, there’s a 100 percent money-back guarantee, so there’s absolutely no reason not to try it! For more information, visit their website here.
2. Keep your tablet in airplane mode
Airplane mode is handy when you’re traveling, but did you know it serves other purposes too? Your tablet is constantly emitting radiation when it’s connected to WiFi and Bluetooth. When you cut off those connections, you reduce your risk.
If you’re just using your iPad to read, take notes, or listen to music offline, put it in airplane mode! It’s an easy way to protect yourself against unnecessary radiation. The best part is that you’ll probably forget that it’s in airplane mode after you’re done, which means you’ve automatically defaulted to protecting yourself.
Lloyd Burrell also recommends limiting the usage of WiFi in the video below. He also shows the levels of EMFs being generated from an iPad. I highly recommend you watch the whole video.
3. Avoid using your tablet in the car
This one might not seem super realistic. If you use your tablet like I do to occupy your kids while you drive, it’s tough to image your car without this mechanism. Yet, cars have increased radiation, which means any use of the tablet in the car is worse than it is anywhere else.
As painful as it may be, work to eliminate the tablet in the car. Give your kids’ books or small trinkets instead. Sing them songs or play old school car games. It may take getting a little creative, but at least you’ll know that everyone is staying healthy!
4. Say no to tablets in the bedroom
Many of the symptoms listed above relate to sleep issues. Stress, depression, foggy thinking, and fatigue can all be linked to sleep issues that occur because of EMF radiation. As a result, you should try to reduce your exposure while you sleep.
There are some hardcore methods of doing so, but you can also take it slow if you’re used to having many devices around you when you sleep.
In the ideal scenario, you’d have no tablets, iPads, phones or any other electronics that are plugged in in your room. You’d also turn off your electrical circuit breaker and rely on a flashlight. The same goes for turning off your WiFi (that’s right—we’re going old school).
If you hear this list and think, “Yeah, right! That’s not happening,” take it in small steps. Start by removing all your electronic devices from your sleep space. Never ever sleep with your phone by your head.
Now, again, don’t worry! When I first heard this, I was astounded. I was sleeping with my phone by my head every single night. In fact, it was practically on my face because I was using it as an alarm. Now I use an old-school alarm clock that helps me keep time without all the radiation—it’s a win-win (I promise!).
5. Purchase a bed canopy
You’ll be feeling like a prince or princess with a nice bed canopy that helps block out any negative radiation. If you didn’t know such a product existed, welcome because neither did I!
When you invest in a canopy, you’re investing in your health and you’re delaying any potential illnesses related to EMF radiation. That said, you should ensure that the bed canopy has the proper components to do its job. There are three elements to look for…
- For fabric, you’ll need to decide between Daylite fabric and Naturell fabric. The Daylite fabric is more breathable compared to the Naturell, but the Naturell provides better shielding. Thus, you need to decide which is you need based on where you live (look at shielding). You also need to decide which material you like better because Daylite is polyester and Naturell is cotton. If anyone in your home is allergic to certain fabrics, this may make a difference.
- Shielding: Your risk depends on your location. If you don’t live near a cell phone tower or wireless transmitters, then you have a reduced risk (although you still have risk!), which means the Daylite breathable fabric might be just fine. That said, if you live close to either one then the heavy-duty Naturell may be more your speed.
- Under-the-bed protection: This is a required element otherwise you’re not really protecting yourself. Under the bed protection prevents the microwave radiation from seeping under the canopy and up to you anyway. Numerous people miss this part when they’re working to protect themselves. You must have both the canopy and under-the-bed protection, or you didn’t really do anything in the first place.

6. Use your diet to heal any existing damage
If you aren’t a caveman (or cavewoman), odds are that you’ve likely already been exposed to some EMF radiation. Luckily, food can help you heal (in a natural way) from the exposure with the right nutrients.
Eating foods that are High Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) foods can help to resolve any existing damage from iPads and tablets. So, what foods are these? A list is included below! Many of them are superfoods that you may already have in your diet:
- Cruciferous vegetables
- Pomegranate seeds
And these are only a few! There are more out there that you can integrate into your diet and use to repair your body. I have also talked about this in my article on 5G protection.
When I first learned about EMF radiation and how it impacts my everyday usage of tablets/iPads, I was shocked.
I had no idea that some symptoms that I had every day could be attributed to tablet and iPad radiation and definitely don’t want any of the potential illnesses that can manifest later because of it.
Through my own research, I’ve managed to learn a lot about the various adverse health effects and realistic ways that I can prevent these problems.
Anything from new phone cases to reducing the use of my devices to putting it in airplane mode when I use it to purchasing a bed canopy—I feel so much more prepared to use my tablet/iPad when I need to because I understand how the radiation from it works. Do you feel the same?
