Electromagnetic field (EMF) exposure and cell phone radiation protection should be things everyone is aware of, especially expectant mothers. In a study that was released a couple of years ago — but has been largely ignored since — researchers from the Yale School of Medicine found evidence to suggest a link between cell phone radiation exposure during pregnancy and a child being born with autism.
According to a Study_from ABC News by Dr. Hugh Taylor, professor and chief of Yale’s Division of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, led the team of researchers who observed pregnant mice, some of which were exposed to cordless phone radiation, and found another disturbing link to EMF dangers.
“During critical windows in neurogenesis, the brain is susceptible to numerous environmental insults; common medically relevant exposures include ionizing radiation, alcohol, tobacco, drugs and stress,” Dr. Taylor wrote in the study. “The mice exposed to cellphones were more active. Their memory was slightly decreased… these mice were basically bouncing off the walls and didn’t have a care in the world.”
Neurological tests showed that the radiation led to abnormal development of neurons in the part of the brain linked to ADHD and hyperactivity and other childhood disorders. While the authors were quick to note that the study was not conclusive, it did provide “the first experimental evidence of neuropathology due to in-utero cellular telephone radiation.”
However, this is hardly the first time EMF dangers and electromagnetic sensitivity have been shown to cause problems in mothers and children.
One study found that children whose mothers used cell phones during pregnancy had more childhood disorders and behavior issues including:
- 25% more emotional problems
- 35% more hyperactivity
- 49% more conduct problems
- 34% more peer problems.
- Children and adolescents ages 8 to 17 years showed short-term EMF exposure caused headache, irritation, concentration difficulties in school in another 2010 study.
EMF Protection is Crucial for yourself and your child
With the constant bombardment of EMF dangers from things like cell phones and laptop radiation, it’s crucial that every expecting mother takes the necessary steps to protect themselves and their unborn child.
Reduce Cell phone and other wireless use
Wireless phones emit radiation constantly, so keeping use to a minimum while pregnant is a good place to start. We might not know all there is to know about this field, but the potential risks are certainly worth protecting against.
We recommend multi-level protection.
- Start with full-body protection with a BioElectric Shield
- Add specific device protection with an EMF blocking blanket
- Then protect your child with a room Shield
