Clothing and blankets that shield radiation address rising concerns over health risks for pregnant women

Belly Armor Belly Blanket Luxe, protects your child within against the risks of everyday radiation.

“People are expecting the heavy dentist-office-type aprons; but are surprised to find our RadiaShield fabric is lighter than the cotton found in t-shirts,” said Aileen Chen, Belly Armor CEO.

Belly Armor by RadiaShield has recently launched in San Francisco with a new line of maternity clothing and accessories to shield pregnant women against radiation from cell phones and laptops. To address the growing concern over health effects from radiation, Belly Armor has adapted a new patent-pending consumer technology to maternity blankets, t-shirts, and belly bands.

“People are expecting the heavy dentist-office-type aprons; but are surprised to find our RadiaShield fabric is lighter than the cotton found in t-shirts,” said Aileen Chen, Belly Armor CEO.

The technology, utilizing an effect known as a Faraday cage, neutralizes incoming radiation in a way similar to a grounding wire neutralizing an electric current. “Our silver-based textile, which is machine washable and soft to the touch allows us to create products that pregnant women are excited to wear,” Ms. Chen explains.

San Francisco has taken a leading position on the radiation health issue within the US, passing the first local ordinance requiring radiation emission levels to be displayed by retailers when cell phones are being sold.

While the first in the US, these measures are similar to those that have been taken by many countries globally. France has gone as far as to ban marketing cell phones to children under 14 and selling cell phones to children under 6. Health agencies in Australia, Israel, Finland, Germany, United Kingdom, and Switzerland have all also taken steps to reduce children’s exposure to cell phone radiation.

Belly Armor is currently available at Nest Maternity (1839 Divisadero Street – between Pine & Bush St.) or online at bellyarmor.com.
