'Monitors give off deadly radiation'

BABIES are being put at risk of cancer by hi-tech cot monitors which emit deadly radiation, it is claimed.

Parents will be horrified to learn that slow-pulsing microwaves blasted out by modern digital equipment may cause leukaemia, say scientists.

Lab tests have also linked the radiation to potentially fatal brain tumours, breast cancer, headaches and disturbed behaviour patterns in kids.

Consumer group Powerwatch has urged parents to ditch digital (DECT) monitors.

Boss Alasdair Philips said: "We don't recommend they are used. Do not put a wireless transmitter in your child's bedroom and irradiate them unnecessarily."

Emissions, even if the monitor is not in use, can reportedly reach six volts per metre-TWICE as strong as those found within 100 metres of mobile phone masts.

That's a similar amount given off by digital cordless phones, as we revealed this month.

Baby monitoring mats-which check a tot's temperature and breathing-are also a concern because it is claimed they can emit 120 TIMES the safe level of 0.05 volts per metre.

Digital products produce the radiation-but are popular because they provide clearer sound than old analogue monitors.

Expert Dr David Dowson said: "Until more research has been done, I would advise every parent not to use them."

One manufacturer said: "There's no scientific evidence linking radiowaves to symptoms."

CHILDREN may be at risk of cancer from digital baby monitors, parents have been warned.

The cordless gadgets, which allow babies' breathing patterns to be checked from another room, emit potentially dangerous radio waves even when not in use.

Consumer group Powerwatch warned parents against using them after research suggested the technology increased the risk of brain tumours.

There are also fears it is linked with leukaemia, breast cancer, headaches and disturbed behaviour patterns in children.

Digitally enhanced cordless technology is becoming more popular in baby monitors. But Powerwatch founder, Alasdair Philips, said: 'This technology poses a risk to everyone, but babies in particular should not be exposed to it at all.

'Babies are more likely to be effected because their cells are rapidly dividing as they grow and can be more easily damaged.'

Similar concerns have been expressed about cordless phones.

Last week, research found those who used digital mobiles or cordless phones had a higher chance of getting a benign tumour called acoustic neuroma, though similar studies have found no link.

Dr Michael Clark, of the Health Protection Agency, said he would be surprised if digital baby monitors and base units of cordless phones caused cancer because their electromagnetic fields operate at low levels and the devices are not held against the head.

PARENTS have been warned to avoid using new digital cot monitors amid fears they emit cancer-causing radiation.

Emissions were found to be twice as strong as those found within 100 metres of mobile phone masts.

Research suggests the slow-pulsing microwaves used by the transmitters could cause headaches leukaemia, or brain tumours and may disturb sleep or upset behaviour.

Alasdair Philips, from Powerwatch, said: "We don't recommend they are used. Do not put a wireless transmitter in a child's bedroom and irritate them unnecessarily."
