Radiation Risk You Are Exposed To – How to Avoid it

Screen Shot 2015-09-02 at 12.58.26 PM

I have decided every Wednesday to offer you my idea of a good Christmas gift. I am going to do this till the end of the year. I am always looking for something different to give my friends so thought I might share this with you.

Why Smart Phones could cause cancer in Children and why this phone cover is the perfect gift For Christmas.

My Grandkids are definitely  getting this for Xmas

Some experts say no, others say our devices could be the Asbestos of the future

I was watching Dr Oz the other day and he had a pediatrician from Chicago on his program and she was saying that she feels our children are in danger from all our smart phones, tablets and computers. The amount of electromagnetic radiation that is emitted from these devices could put our children in danger of becoming ill in the future.

As she said nothing has yet been proved but believes that in 20 years time there could be a result from all this exposure.

It has been suggested that the radiation has caused cancer in adult. The scary thing is that the skull of children is so much thinner than adults which could be a real danger to them.

A survey was done by Dr Oz . Families were asked how many devices do your children have and 65% of those said their children had 2 or more devices.

What attracted my attention was that the pediatrician mentioned about the fact that not only do they put some of these devices to their ears most of them,  my grandchildren included, work with these devices on their laps which are close to their reproductive organs.

Apparently there is some regulation (FCC) about how much radiation these devices can emit  but at the same time we have increased the usage over the years.

Another factor is that because a child’s skull is thinner than an adult, their brain absorbs the electro magnetic radiation 10 times more than an adult.

Example that I took off the screen. Here we see the result of a 5 year old, 10 year old and an Adult.

Now that I find rather a major concern.You can watch this on DrOz.com

When it comes to radiation distance matters.
1. Keep the phone as far away from the body as possible
2. Don’t allow laptops or tablets to sit on lap
3. Adjust to airplane mode when not in use
4. Use the speaker phone
5. Text
6. Don’t sleep with your phone next to your head
7. Teenage girls –  do not put them in your bras
8. There is a cellphone case that helps with the protection of electromagnetic radiation.

This is my Christmas Gift suggestion Click on pictures to buy:-

The Easiest Way To Make a Mug Cake

I thought this was pretty cool. Going to send to the Grandkids they will probably have fun doing this.

Now if that was me I would be putting ice-cream and caramel on top or Maple syrup. If you are a real sugar addict then maybe chocolate chips or smarties, either way looks tasty and easy.

Back in Aussie

Back online again. I am in Australia at the moment visiting my Grandkids and doing a bit of business.
I looked after my 95 year old Mother in NZ for two months while my brother was in Europe.
I had a good time with my Mother but I especially have a good time with her dog ‘Charlie’.
Every morning I would take Charlie round the township of Omokoroa (NZ). It was quite some walk and I was surprised how those little legs kept up. Some days she was up to it, some not so energetic but always with the rattle of the dog lead she would come running.
Here are some pictures of one of the walks we did. As you will see it is a spectacular walk with lots of greenery and lovely flowers, beach, and bush.
I miss her.

Nature Girl

This was sent to me and it made me remember my time with my own Grandkids when they were that age. I used to take them for a ‘Nanna walk’ to the beach. We would go to the coffee shop afterwards meet my friends and have our morning cappuccino and my Grandkids would have what they would call ‘babychino’s’ (warm milk and froth sprinkled with chocolate and maybe a marshmallow). I loved it and a great memory for me but they were so small they probably don’t remember it at all.

I take my daughter outside somewhere in “nature” almost every single day. She sits and quietly takes in everywhere I bring her. I couldn’t be more proud. (via imgur.com)

Note To A Grandparent

I so had to laugh at this one. It is something that my Grandkids would write. Quite innocently.

Thanks for being a fun grandma

How To Grow A Pineapple

IMGP1523

Grandkids at the Big Pineapple Australia

Now this is one way to grow a pineapple, but as someone who has taken her grandchildren , like 50 times to the ‘Big Pineapple’ in Australia and rode around the plantation in the electric train, they, being the plantation workers, explained a different method. This Aussie method I believe will produce a pineapple quicker than the system below. You could try both. I know it takes about 2 years for a pineapple to produce ripe fruit. So it is not something that will produce any time soon after planting. It would have to be an ornamental plant till it produces. 

The way I was told to plant them is cut the top off and leave it several weeks outside till the plant dries out at the base, then plant. Apparently it will produce quicker this way.

Not sure if that is totally correct so you could try the method below.
