Autism and EMF Radiation – a Connection?

Autism and EMF Radiation – Is There a Connection?

More experts are wondering if there is a connection between EMF radiation and the growing incidence of Autism. This rise in autism parallels the increased use of WiFi networks, the introduction of 5G, and the proliferation of smartphone use worldwide.

Autism is a worldwide phenomenon that has been increasing since the 1960s.

  • In 1966, only one in 2,500 children had autism. Now, in 2021, the worldwide rate is 1 in 160. In the USA, it’s now 1 in 54 children (1 in 34 boys, 1 in 144 girls) who develop autism as toddlers.
  • Experts in the field, including Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt, Dr. Martha Herbert, Cindy Sage, and the comprehensive BioInitiative Report of 2012, have found biological effects of EMF/RFR exposure that contribute to oxidative stress and other changes in the brain.
  • These, in turn, can affect fetal development and subsequent developmental issues for their children, including autism.

Let’s take a deeper dive into the EMF-Autism connections

Seven findings that EMF/RFR exposure is associated with autistic behavior:

  •  EMFs alter brain functioning in some children. EEG readings show abnormal patterns and reduced attention span. (Which happens to EVERYONE, not just folks with autism)
  • EMF affects pineal gland function and melatonin production, an essential hormone in regulating sleep/wake cycles and immune system functioning. This may explain why so many people with autism struggle with insomnia.
  • EMF affects motor control cells, thus affecting coordination skills. Some studies have found EMF effects to be associated with motor dysfunctions.
  • EMF may enhance glutamate toxicity and cause autistic symptoms such as aggressiveness, self-stimulating behavior, seizures, insomnia, anxiety, and depression.
  • EMFs affect the blood-brain barrier (BBB), which allows toxins to enter the brain that would normally be kept out by a healthy BBB. EMFs have been shown to damage the protective cells known as microglia, which are responsible for removing toxins from the brain.
  • EMFs can affect neurotransmitters in the brain that control behavior, including serotonin, which is low in children with autism.

These studies are part of a greater body of literature that suggests that EMF radiation protection for ASD individuals could be very helpful to their daily functioning and comfort level in the world.

Dr. Hugh Taylor of Yale U. School of Medicine cautions women about EMF Radiation during pregnancy.

Quoted from the Environmental Trust: “Dr. Hugh Taylor, Chair of the Department of Obstetrics at Yale University School of Medicine Recommends Precautions

‘There’s essentially no downside to being cautious and protecting your baby,” says Dr. Hugh Taylor, Chair of the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences at Yale University School of Medicine. Dr. Taylor recently authored a study showing significant behavioral changes in the offspring of mice exposed to cell phone radiation during pregnancy.

“We have demonstrated clear cause and effect relationships in mice, and we already have studies showing that women who use cell phones have children with more behavioral problems. I think together that’s very powerful evidence.’ —Dr. Hugh Taylor

Autism and EMF Radiation Protection – Where to begin?

There are several EMF Protection options for those who suspect they may be experiencing EMF sensitivity, as well as parents and caregivers. Where you begin to provide EMF protection depends on your budget and how sensitive your child is to EMF.

If you think EMFs might be playing a role in your child’s autism or other health issues, please take the EMF Exposure Quiz. You’ll get a recommendation for full-body protection based on your answers.

Autism EMF Protection Suggestions

  1. The best protection from EMF radiation is full-body protection. We have a special matrix designed for ASD individuals. This matrix is available in Level 2, 3, or 4 BioElectric Shields. This ASD matrix Shield is designed to help realign and clear some of the passages in the brain. It will help balance the person’s mental, physical, and emotional energy levels. It will provide EMF protection and may help with certain aspects of life, including focus, staying calmer than usual, and being more aware of one’s space. It may also help balance out some anxiety. Results will vary depending on the person. It will help different individuals with certain aspects of life.
    1. Note: We don’t currently have the ASD Shields listed on our site. Please order a photo analysis so we can choose the best option for you or your child.
  2. You can pin a Shield to your infant’s diaper to protect it from EMF radiation or drape it with an EMF anti-radiation blanket (it’s lightweight and easy to use).
    1. For older children, you can pin inside pockets or waistbands or choose a wristband Shield instead.
  3. No WiFI at Night: Brain development, rest, and repair occur when a person sleeps. It is particularly important to protect children’s brains! EMF radiation has been linked to poor sleep, so minimizing it at night is important. We suggest you put your WiFi on a timer. You’ll all sleep better.
  4. No electronics in the bedrooms. If your child isn’t wearing a personal BioElectric Shield, a premium Room Shield will reduce EMF in the bedroom.
  5. Clear rooms of EMF—Use a BioElectric Shield Room Shield to reduce the ambient EMF in any room of the home.
  6. Reduce the Radiation in Your Vehicles—Install an anti-radiation Room or auto Shield in your vehicle to reduce EMF radiation from Bluetooth and auto electronics.
  7. Reduce Cell phone radiation by 99.9% – All family members can use the anti-radiation SYB cellphone case, which blocks 99.9% of the radiation. Choose Radiation-free earbuds while your phone is secure in the pouch.
  8. Create EMF Protective Clothing Using a Fabric Rinse -Another option is to wash his/her clothing in the anti-radiation fabric rinse that converts normal clothing into EMF protective clothing!


EMF protection can be very helpful for autistic individuals and their caregivers.

Please take the EMF exposure quiz to get personal recommendations based on your answers.

We recommend that you take advantage of the photo analysis for your child so we can be sure you are getting the best possible protection and energy-balancing Shield.

EMF Protection options vary, so find what works best for you or your child/family member’s budget and comfort level.
