Presentation by Dr. Mary Redmayne

  • Media reporting on mobile phone safety is generally either alarmist or ‘no worries’. So what is a person to believe?
  • Several areas of risk when using screens and how to handle them.
  • A beginners guide will be given as to how devices work (transmitting microwaves), and some negative effects research has shown that they can have.
  • 5G and the difference it is likely to make will also be briefly considered.
  • Personal and environmental microwave exposure sources and basics of what increases/reduces the energy output of those devices and your level of exposure.
  • Gaming and social networking are ringing alarm bells internationally, in light of links between heavy use and its impact on mental health, wellbeing and behaviour. The likely paths of effect will be explained as well as ways to minimize risk for young people (and their parents!).
  • The talk aims to equip parents, teachers and others caring for infants through to teens for informed decision-making on staying healthy in the screen age. A guide on developing good user habits and family rules for screen devices will be presented.

Thirty minutes for Questions and Answers will follow the talk.

We attach herewith, a poster (with further information) promoting the above presentation. We would be pleased if you could print off a copy or two and place them in a prominent position at your work place or in a public place within your community. Also, your weekly/monthly newsletter would be a good way to reach your wider community.

(The Christchurch Rudolf Steiner School can be accessed in three ways: Ombersley Terrace, Fifield Terrace, Riverlaw Terrace behind the school (over footbridge). Parking will mostly be on the street, however Hansen Park does have some car parks.)

Looking forward to seeing you there!
