Belly Armor's Story...
When Aileen (Co-founder & CEO of Belly Armor)  became pregnant with her first child, she was a banking executive who was constantly connected to her mobile phone, smart phone and laptop. Like most expectant mothers, she researched extensively on how to give her child the best start in life. All sources advised pregnant women to eat healthy, exercise, and avoid toxins like alcohol and certain chemicals – all of which she did diligently.
However, one obvious component in her everyday life which concerned her, about which there was little advice, was the radiation-emitting devices that surrounded her at home and at work. What were the health impacts of those? She researched more into this “everyday radiation” exposure, and was shocked at what she discovered.
Increasingly, research was indicating potential health risks from everyday radiation (non-ionizing radiation emitted by sources like cell phones, computers, wireless towers and power lines).  
Compounding the risk is the exponential growth in wireless technologies over the past decade – today’s children will be exposed to levels of radiation unprecedented in human history.
We worry that we are in that gap between scientific knowledge and public awareness.
If history is any indication, it can takes years and even decades for scientific evidence to conclusively affirm health risks and then translate into policies to safeguard people (such was the case with tobacco, lead, asbestos, and x-rays).

There is no doubt that technology has significant benefits for our lives. However, our aim is to help us all become more informed about their potential risks and utilise them more safely. It’s similar to taking simple but risk-reducing actions such as wearing seatbelts and staying within speed limits when driving cars. Most of us were not surrounded by electronic devices since birth, but our children will be for many more hours each day and many more decades than any of us were ever exposed to during our adult years.
Inform yourself and your loved ones.
Help us spread the word. xx
Belly Armor  is the definitive resource for families looking to protect themselves against the harmful effects of everyday radiation, providing knowledge about the health risks from wireless technologies and designing products to help reduce exposure.
We're all about protecting what matters most...
Whilst studies are ongoing, what we do know, is that radiation at the levels emitted by cell phones and wi-fi DOES have a biological impact. Numerous studies have shown that it impacts the way cells grow, DNA replicates, and brain cells function. Because of this, health experts believe early childhood and pregnancy – when rapid and complex cell development occurs – are the times of highest risk.
