Electronic devices like cell phones, Wi-Fi routers, Laptops operate on Radio Frequency-Electromagnetic Frequency (RF-EMF), which is all around us 24 by 7 in our homes and workplaces, and in public spaces like cafes and malls.
Scientific and medical research has conclusively proved that prolonged and
sustained exposure to these radiation sources can potentially lead to
a range of serious medical conditions, some of which are irreversible.
In the last decade or so, this "Dirty Electricity" or "Electric Pollution" has been implicated by scientists as an incidental cause of several types of cancers.
Radio frequency from our cell phones and Wi-Fi fields has now been classified by research experts as a causative factor for Cancer by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC). WHO has categorized electromagnetic fields as "POSSIBLY CARCINOGENIC” (Group 2B), based on an increased risk for Glioma and Acoustic Neuroma, a highly malignant type of brain cancer, which has been associated with sustained cell phone usage.
Past and ongoing research into the hazards of cellphone and EMF radiation on the human body has concluded that RF-EMF can lead to some serious medical conditions. Some of the diseases which can be directly attributed to RF-EMF exposure are:
Further, pregnant women who are exposed to RF-EMF radiation have a higher probability of giving birth to children with a greater incidence of chronic ailments and malignancies, some of which are:
Pregnant women are one of the most vulnerable group to the adverse effects of this
radiation from cellphone and EMF radiation. Medical research studies have shown that pregnant women exposed to EMF levels of 1.6 microteslas (µT) or more were nearly twice as likely to have a miscarriage or fetal abnormalities.
Pregnancy is a critical development stage where the growing fetus is highly
susceptible to these environmental exposures and hazardous effects of this
radiation. That's one of the main reasons why it is mandatory for pregnant
women to inform the X-ray technicians about their pregnancy.
We always try to make the best nutritional choices, and also make positive
modifications to our lifestyle so as to provide the best start to our baby, but
with the invisible radiation fields which are surrounding us 24/7, the one
question we have to ask ourselves is:
IS IT ENOUGH?
