All of your personal electronic devices emit Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR), or Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) that are comprised of Extremely Low Frequencies (ELF), Radio Frequencies (RF, Wi-fi, data etc.) and Thermal Radiation (heat), all of which are potentially harmful. Gamma Rays, X-Rays and UV are also types of EMR.
EMR has a high decay rate which means that most of the exposure is felt within a few inches and especially with direct contact (laptops, cell phones, tablets etc.). EMR can penetrate most natural and man made materials including wood, plastic, pillows, blankets, clothes etc.
“Sensitivity to electromagnetic radiation is the emerging health problem of the 21st century. It is imperative health practitioners, governments, schools and parents learn more about it. The human health stakes are significant."
-Dr. William Rea, MD, Founder & Director of the Environmental Health Center, Dallas
An increasing number of doctors and scientists are warning that prolonged exposure to EMR increases our risk of various diseases from Leukemia, to cancerous tumors, to Alzheimers and ALS and more. This is why the EPA has labeled EMFs a "class 3 carcinogen" and the IARC considers them "possibly carcinogenic to humans," a description also given to substances like Chloroform, Lead and DDT.

In many ways the sudden, massive emergence of electronics is similar to past generations' emergence of misunderstood threats like cigarettes and asbestos. While there were inconclusive evidence, and differing opinions at the time of their introduction, the devastating health effects became clear many years later, too late for many consumers. Sadly, we were the guinea pigs then and history is repeating itself.
By integrating FCC certified lab tested radiation shielding technology into all of our products, SafeSleeve offers the most effective, practical and stylish protection from all three types of EMR (ELF, RF and Thermal) for your cell phone and laptop.
