Research studies on EMF Radiation


Dr. Kameshwar Prasad, Head of Neurology, AIIMS, New Delhi - Effects of cellphone radiation.

This is a 2017 study conducted by Dr. Kameshwar Prasad, Head of Neurology, AIIMS New Delhi. It established a direct correlation between cellphone radiation and brain cancer. According to this research, pregnant women and children were especially vulnerable to the hazardous effects of radiation. Also, cellphone use was associated with a decrease in semen quality and fertility levels. This study issued an advisory to pregnant women to minimize their cellphone usage.

NCBI, USA study on effects of EMF on pregnancy and fetal health.

In this research published by the National Center for Biotech Information, US scientists evaluated the health hazards of EMF exposure on reproductive health, focusing on the spontaneous abortions and congenital malformations. This study concluded that an adverse effect during the early fetal development by EMF of cell phones could conceivably result in fetal death. It concluded that on the basis of available data, the use of cell phones during pregnancy can lead to spontaneous abortions and fetal abnormalities.

Link between EMF exposure during pregnancy and juvenile asthma.

This Kaiser Permanente study appearing in the Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine determined that women with higher MF exposure during pregnancy had a more than threefold risk of asthma in their offspring compared with mothers whose exposure to radiation was low.

Study on the correlation between maternal EMF exposure and childhood obesity.

"Pregnancy is a critical developmental stage that is among those periods that are most vulnerable to the environmental exposures. These findings indicate that electromagnetic fields, from microwave ovens to countless wireless devices, could be contributing to the childhood obesity risk," said Dr. De-Kun Li, a perinatal epidemiologist with the Kaiser Permanente Northern California Division of Research in Oakland, Calif., and the lead author of the study. 

According to Dr. De-Kun Li, EMF exposure during pregnancy could impact the fetal development, including endocrine and metabolic systems, predisposing the offspring to higher risk of obesity.

Researchers also found that low to medium exposure to electromagnetic field (EMF) was associated with about 50 percent increase in obesity risk in children while a high EMF exposure lead to an increase in obesity rates by about 84 percent.

EMF radiation exposure and childhood leukemia.

The developing embryo, fetus and babies are more susceptible to environmental toxins of all kinds. The babies/;;; whose mothers had sustained exposure to EMF radiation had an increased risk of Leukemia, behavioural problems and hyperactivity around the age of school entry. This study recommended common sense measures to limit exposure to radiation during pregnancy, especially with respect to laptop computers, mobile phones, and other sources of EMF.
