Protect Your Pregnancy From Wireless Radiation
Does Cell Phone Radiation Impact Pregnancy? Dr. Devra Davis explains.
Increased risk of miscarriage?
Birth.com.au reports there are many potential reasons for miscarriage including “Environmental exposures to certain drugs or prescribed medications, smoking, excessive alcohol, radiation, certain chemicals and pesticides.”
Studies show an increased incidence of miscarriages correlating with electromagnetic radiation exposure as follows:
A study out of San Francisco asked over 900 women less than 10 weeks into a pregnancy to wear a monitor for 24 hours to measure exposure to electromagnetic radiation. When researchers compared exposure to pregnancy outcome, they found that those who were exposed to higher levels of electromagnetic radiation had an 80 percent increase in the risk of miscarriage. The risk was even higher among women with a history of recurrent pregnancy loss and/or infertility. The peak exposure level cut off point that was observed to be significant was 16mG. Mobile phones electromagnetic field levels are greater than 20mG when held at a distance of 7.5 – 10cm from the body.
In dual studies of radiation from high-voltage power lines exposure of only 16 mG was (again) associated with a doubling of the spontaneous abortion rate, especially in the first 3 months of a pregnancy.
Researchers have documented changes in the ovary and uterus after exposure to EMFs for over 50 days.
How could electromagnetic radiation affect a pregnancy? Every cell in every living organism is surrounded by an electromagnetic field, and various parts of the body (e.g. organ systems, the brain) have their own electromagnetic field. The theory is that these fields play an important role in the incredibly rapid cell division and differentiation going on in a foetus, and that the relatively weak electromagnetic fields found in living organisms can be disrupted by exposure to stronger fields.
Asthma and Childhood Obesity
The following studies have linked pregnancy and electromagnetic radiation exposure to asthma and childhood obesity.
- In-utero Exposure to Magnetic Fields and the Risk of Childhood Obesity
- Maternal Exposure to Magnetic Fields During Pregnancy in Relation to the Risk of Asthma in Offspring
