Childhood disorders have been linked with Electromagnetic field (EMF) exposure and cell phone radiation while pregnant. Protection should be something everyone is aware of, especially expectant mothers. In a study that was released a couple of years ago — but has been largely ignored since — researchers from the Yale School of Medicine found evidence to suggest a link between cell phone radiation exposure during pregnancy and a child being born with autism.
EMF Radiation from cell phones linked to ADHD hyperactivity
According to a Study_from ABC News by Dr. Hugh Taylor, professor and chief of Yale’s Division of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, led the team of researchers who observed pregnant mice, some of which were exposed to cordless phone radiation, and found another disturbing link to EMF dangers.
“During critical windows in neurogenesis, the brain is susceptible to numerous environmental insults; common medically relevant exposures include ionizing radiation, alcohol, tobacco, drugs and stress,” Dr. Taylor wrote in the study. “The mice exposed to cellphones were more active. Their memory was slightly decreased… these mice were basically bouncing off the walls and didn’t have a care in the world.”
Neurological tests showed that the radiation led to abnormal development of neurons in the part of the brain linked to ADHD and hyperactivity and other childhood disorders. While the authors were quick to note that the study was not conclusive, it did provide “the first experimental evidence of neuropathology due to in-utero cellular telephone radiation.”
However, this is hardly the first time EMF dangers and electromagnetic sensitivity have been shown to cause problems in mothers and children.
EMF Exposure During Pregnancy Can Affect Your Child’s Behavior
One study found that children whose mothers used cell phones during pregnancy had more childhood disorders and behavior issues, including:
- 34% more peer problems.
- Children and adolescents ages 8 to 17 years showed short-term EMF exposure caused headache, irritation, and concentration difficulties in school in another 2010 study.
Limit Your Exposure
It’s important to do your best to limit the use of devices such as laptops, tablets, cell phones, and anything else with cellular or wireless communications. This is by far the best tip for protection because even the best EMF shielding device can’t block 100% of radiation.
Next, when using these devices, try to keep them as far away as possible. Use the speakerphone option to make phone calls instead of holding your phone up to your ear. Even laptops should be placed on a desk or something other than our laps when in use. Remember to turn your devices off when they’re not in use. A laptop in ‘sleep’ mode can still emit EMFs.
EMF Protection is Crucial for yourself and your child
With the constant bombardment of EMF dangers from cell phones and laptop radiation, every expecting mother must take the necessary steps to protect themselves and their unborn child.
Reduce Cell phone, wireless, and other device usage
Wireless phones emit radiation constantly. Keeping use to a minimum while pregnant is a good place to start. We might not know all there is to know about this field, but the potential risks are certainly worth protecting against.
We recommend multi-level protection.
- Start with full-body protection with a BioElectric Shield
- Add specific device protection with an EMF blocking blanket, cell phone, and other device protection
- Then protect your child with a room Shield

Some studies suggest that women who used cell phones throughout their pregnancy wound up having children with more issues. We believe it’s vital for you to know what to do about pregnancy and EMF Protection – protecting yourself and your baby’s health and well-being.
There are ways you can protect yourself and your baby from the high EMF side effects throughout your pregnancy and beyond. We offer a range of products that allow you to lead a normal life while still putting your and your child’s safety first when you’re pregnant and after birth. Read more
