* Fetal Exposure to Radiofrequency Radiation (EMF/EMR) (22/8/02)

Tramès per Klaus Rudolph (Citizens' Initiative Omega)

CHICAGO, July 22 /PRNewswire/ -- The cell phone headset has become popular as a way to reduce the cognitive impairment and cancer risk associated with radiofrequency (RF) radiation exposure.  However, the possibility of embryonic and fetal damage is now increasing as the radiating cell phone units are being moved elsewhere on or near the body.  In many cases the devices are relocated immediately adjacent to the area where an embryo or fetus is carried. Researchers have emphatically reported that an embryo/fetus should not be exposed to radiofrequency radiation, such as that emitted by the portable cell phone or portable telephone.   One particular reason to avoid RF radiation exposure during pregnancy is that an embryo/fetus may not be fully protected by amniotic fluid for extended periods of time due to the natural movement of the mother or the embryo/fetus within the womb. Secondly, the pelvic structure promotes deep RF radiation penetration and that radiation can be absorbed within the developing embryo/fetus.

Published research results continue to reinforce the general understanding that human exposure to RF radiation can cause damaging genetic effects.  These effects include chromosome damage, DNA damage, cancer, memory loss, and cognitive impairment.

One area not yet adequately investigated by researchers may determine the significance of any link between the increasing rate of Autism Spectrum Disorder or, Pervasive Developmental Disorder, and damage to an embryo or fetus caused by increasing levels of RF radiation exposure. During this time of increased Autism/PDD incidence, no other environmental substance has become so globally widespread as has human-generated RF radiation.

During the last several years, industry-funded researchers have repeatedly reported a link between RF radiation exposure and genetic damage.  After making their results known many of those researchers have found that their research programs were prematurely terminated.  This also happened to researchers a generation ago when RF radiation biological effects were first made known.

Be aware that research findings, both industry-sponsored and independently conducted, continue to yield additional data that show the same results.  Human exposure to RF radiation, electromagnetic fields, at levels typically encountered by using a portable cellular telephone or living in close proximity to a cell tower may be hazardous to your health, or to your unborn child's health.

Message from Robert Kane forwarded by Roy Beavers and Santini study from Janet Newton, President of the EMR Network:

Elsevier's French journal entitled Pathologie Biologie has published the study by Roger Santini et al. on the health of people living near mobile phone base stations.  It is the first published study looking at exposures from mobile phone base station antennas.   The link below takes you to the English translation of the complete study:   "Study of the health of people living in the vicinity of mobile phone base stations: I.  Influences of distance and sex."
