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.
A similar study reporting similar results can be viewed here.
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.
The Emerging Link Between Wireless And Autism
Wireless radiation and chemical toxins are now being studied to determine if they play a role in rising autism rates. The concept that autism is a permanent genetic condition came into question after a study of identical twins at Stanford in 2011. The researchers concluded that genetics alone could only account for less than half of the condition.
Harvard’s Dr. Martha Herbert has been presenting a new model of autism as a state of overload that comes from many factors affecting the entire body and not just the brain (“total load” theory). In 2013, Dr. Herbert and wireless expert Cindy Sage published a paper that outlined a wide range of autism symptoms that match known symptoms of wireless exposure, including genetic damage to sperm, calcium channel mutations, and inflammation. It is important for parents to understand that the wireless signals our electronic devices send and receive are a form of microwave radiation and these signals are known to disrupt calcium.

Asthma, Childhood Obesity, Neonatal Health
The following studies have linked pregnancy and electromagnetic radiation exposure to asthma and childhood obesity.
