Pregnancy and Wireless Radiation Risks

The following joint statement on pregnancy and wireless radiation is part of the Baby Safe Project, a new public awareness initiative designed to inform women about the links between pregnancy and wireless radiation.  The statement was signed by 44 physicians and scientists from 13 nations, and by 13 educators who have studied wireless radiation health effects.
The project is a joint initiative of two environmental health non-profit organizations: Grassroots Environmental Education and Environmental Health Trust.
A video of the press conference that launched the Baby Safe Project and supplementary resources are available at http://bit.ly/1kqJUur/.Dr. Hugh Taylor from the Yale University School of Medicine, Dr. Devra Davis from the Environmental Health Trust, and Dr. Maya Shetreat-Klein, a pediatric neurologist who treats autistic children, made presentations at the press conference and answered questions from journalists.

Dr. Taylor discussed his peer-reviewed, experimental research on pregnant mice that were exposed to cell phone radiation. In his study prenatal exposure to cell phone radiation resulted in decreased memory and increased hyperactivity in the offspring. A dose-response relationship was observed between the amount of fetal exposure to cell phone radiation and altered brain activity in the offspring. Dr. Taylor recommends that pregnant women limit their exposure to cell phone radiation.

Dr. Davis discussed the history of tobacco and asbestos in the U.S. to argue for a precautionary approach to reducing risks from “possibly carcinogenic” environmental exposures like wireless radiation (as determined by the World Health Organization). She summarized peer-reviewed, experimental research on prenatal exposure to microwave radiation conducted by Dr. Nesrin Seyhan which found DNA damage in mice and by Dr. Suleyman Kaplan which found damage to brain cells in the hippocampus as well as adverse behavioral effects in the offspring.  Dr. Davis provided recommendations on how to reduce exposure to cell phone and Wi-Fi radiation.

Dr. Shetreat-Klein discussed peer-reviewed observational research that found prenatal exposure to wireless radiation associated with adverse behavioral changes in children. She advises pregnant women to keep cell phones away from their bodies.

In response to audience questions, Dr. Davis discussed the need for research funding. She mentioned that the Environmental Health Trust and Dr. Joel Moskowitz at Berkeley are calling for an annual, one dollar fee per cell phone to be devoted to training and research on wireless radiation and health.  Dr. Taylor reported that his patients appreciate receiving precautionary information regarding the need to reduce exposure to wireless radiation during pregnancy. Dr. Davis discussed recommendations from the U.S. General Accountability Office and the American Academy of Pediatrics that call on the FCC to test cell phones in a realistic manner. Finally, Dr. Davis discussed the potential product liability faced by the cell phone industry due to adverse health impacts, an issue which she addressed in her book on cell phone radiation,Disconnect.

Joint Statement on Pregnancy and Wireless Radiation

We join together as physicians, scientists and educators to express our concern about the risk that wireless radiation poses to pregnancy and to urge pregnant women to limit their exposures.We recognize that the exquisitely delicate systems that direct the development of human life are vulnerable to environmental insults, and that even minute exposures during critical windows of development may have serious and life-long consequences.

We know that the scientific process demands a thorough and exhaustive examination of the possible impact of wireless radiation on health; however, we believe substantial evidence of risk, rather than absolute proof of harm, must be the trigger for action to protect public health.

We call on the research community to conduct more studies to identify the mechanisms by which a fetus could be affected by wireless radiation exposures. We call on our elected leaders to support such research and to advance policies and regulations that limit exposures for pregnant women. We call on industry to implement and explore technologies and designs that will reduce radiation exposures until such research is carried out.

We affirm our role as health and science professionals to inform the public about the potential dangers associated with early-life exposures to wireless radiation, and invite all professionals engaged in obstetric, pediatric, and environmental health advocacy to join us in our quest to ensure the safety and health of future generations.

3 thoughts on “Can all of these people be wrong? Pregnancy and Wireless Radiation Risks

  1. About 3 years ago I had often ringing in my ears, sometimes lasting for hours. I often drop items and I feel heavy and light headed, My focus and concentration is very blurry and sometimes is non existing. I sometimes fall from sides to sides. I average 2 to 3 hours sleep at night and when asleep I’m always dreaming.
    Quite often I feel sharp needles on various parts of my body which often keeps me awake for most of the night.
    I noticed that these experiences are mainly when I am indoors.
    When I am in large open areas, such as parks etc. I do not feel the thickness and fogging of my brain, nor do I feel the sharp needles on my body.
    Just recently I have been made aware that a smart meter has been installed in my residence. Why was it installed without my knowledge and without my consent?
    Please help as I am also experiencing unexplained irritability.

    1. Hello Isabella,

      We certainly understand your situation and sadly, you are not alone. Your “SMART METER” is a surveillance device that monitors your “energy consumption behavior” and it emits biologically destructive “pulsed” and “dirty electricity”radiation in your home, and it is UNLAWFUL because your power company has no easement (rightful access) to do that!!

      We encourage you and anyone else who does not yet have a smart meter, to put all of your utilities “on notice” and in writing. Visit this site for sample letters and change the names to customize.

      If you currently have a smart meter – visit this site and download the FREE forms to send to your power company. This notice gives them a LIMITED TIME to install a safe analog meter and, if they don’t, it secures YOUR right to replace the meter yourself!

      Yes, it takes a bit of time. But for your health, you must take action. Please share this with your neighbors, friends, and family. And if you have further questions or concerns, please continue to post your comments.

      We wish you the very best!
