Accurate reproduction of our genetic material from one generation to the next assures the survival of the species. This is the most crucial process living organisms have to create healthy, behaviorally appropriate offspring. The nervous system, immune system and reproductive system evolved over time to create a complex interaction of molecular and electrical signaling that provides normal function and integration in an adult. We  have understood for many decades the fragile nature of fetal and childhood development. It is well known that there are critical stages in human and animal development that make this early period vulnerable to harm. There are many junctions during development that can be adversely and permanently altered by toxic exposures. We are aware that these include ionizing radiation, some industrial and commercial chemicals and pesticides. We caution our patients to avoid these. Emerging research is revealing that non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation from wireless devices can also cause adverse biologic effects during reproduction, as is shown in the following scientific literature. This research is being reproduced and strengthened in different laboratories internationally.

A 2022 carefully performed systematic review of reproduction and RFR  shows a relationship of higher levels of daily exposure to RFR from wireless devices to poor pregnancy outcomes. Reducing exposure to wireless devices in pregnant women is recommended.

Prenatal Neurologic Effects on Offspring

Prenatal effects on the nervous system of offspring have also been demonstrated in a number of studies. Yale professor Dr. Hugh Taylor published an important 2012 study in Nature Scientific Reports where pregnant mice were exposed to cell phone radiation by a phone on top of the cage in active or silent mode. Controls had the phones turned off.  The researchers found that prenatal exposure to cell phone radiation was associated with ADHD and reduced memory capacity. The Yale press release  states, “Dr. Taylor attributed the behavioral changes to an effect during pregnancy on the development of neurons in the prefrontal cortex region of the brain.”  See also  PST Behavior Memory and Learning effects of RFR for other studies on this topic.
