Radiation can be seriously harmful to our health, studies have proven this, and we are being bombarded by radiation daily from WiFi, cell phones, and other electronic devices. Some studies are saying all of this radiation exposure can be linked to problems with pregnancy, ADHD, asthma, and obesity. If you are pregnant, plan to get pregnant, or have young children, you will definitely want to read what comes next. How Radiation Exposure Affects Pregnancy The impact of cell phone radiation is very difficult to study in pregnant women, since these studies require invasive techniques. However, there are several recent studies that suggest that electromagnetic (EMF) radiation may be harmful to the developing fetus. For example, a study in Turkey found that when pregnant rats were exposed to EMF radiation for 30 minutes a day, their pups were impacted. A study at the Yale University School of Medicine concluded that mice exposed to EMF radiation during gestation were hyperactive and had impaired memory. Similar findings have been found in two human studies, reporting that EMF radiation exposure during pregnancy was correlated with behavioral problems in children. Previous studies on humans have linked exposure to EMFs to higher risk of diabetes, while studies on animals have shown a link between high levels of EMF exposure and being overweight, and pups having ADHD. Cell Phone and WiFi Radiation and ADHD There is shocking evidence that you should use caution when using a mobile phone while pregnant, and take extreme measures to keep the cell phone as far away from your belly as possible. Animal studies suggests that neurobehavioral disorders in kids, such as ADHD, may be linked to exposure to EMF radiation from cell phones and WiFi while in their mother was pregnant. A study at the Yale School of Medicine positioned a mobile phone above a cage of pregnant mice. The cell phone was transmitting an active call for their entire 17 days of gestation. When the pups were tested later on, they displayed symptoms ADHD. EMF Radiation and Asthma Exposure to EMFs have been linked to many health problems, such as cancer and immune system abnormalities, sadly, the latest research demonstrates another risk: childhood asthma. In a recent study, scientists attached magnetic field monitors to pregnant women to measure their level of EMF exposure, they then studied whether it was correlated with the risk of asthma in the women’s children. They concluded that children born to mothers with high levels of EMF exposure had three times the chance of developing asthma compared to those children whose mothers had the lowest exposure. Can Electromagnetic Radiation Lead to Obesity? Pregnant women are often advised to take precautions to limit their EMF radiation exposure in order to protect the health of their unborn children. A recent study has linked high levels of exposure to EMFs while pregnant to childhood obesity. The study showed that kids who were exposed to increased levels of EMF radiation while in the womb had a 69% increased risk of obesity during childhood than those children who had lower exposure to magnetic fields during pregnancy.
