Dr. Mercola’s Comments:
This study provides some frightening projections of what could happen to future generations if the dangers of cell phones are not taken seriously.
The risk “is not much lower than the risk to children’s health from tobacco or alcohol,” says the Russian radiation watchdog body, yet while most people wouldn’t think of handing a pregnant woman or a child a cocktail and a cigarette, no one thinks twice in handing them a cell phone. And therein lies the danger.
I believe that one day the excessive use of cell phones that occurs today will look as ridiculous as the cigarette ads that ran in the Journal of the American Medical Association in the 1920s now do. But in the meantime, the over 1 billion people who use cell phones on a regular basis are putting their health at risk — along with the health of their children and those waiting to be born.
The study above is far from being the first one showing that the electromagnetic radiation from cell phones poses a hazard to a developing fetus. Animal studies have shown that electromagnetic fields in that frequency range can affect their liver enzymes, glands, muscles, hormone balance, and heart and bone marrow.
In fact, the cellular stresses caused by information-carrying radio waves can actually alter the DNA structure of both you and your child.
Autonomic nervous system expert Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt has noted this radiation can easily flip certain genes in the mitochondria. If this gene sequence is altered in a pregnant woman, she can pass her damaged mitochondria on to the child. The child can then develop a mitochondrial disorder, which can include muscular atrophy and severe developmental problems. And of course, in addition to harming your unborn baby, it is also causing the same damage to you. It’s Not Only Cell Phones That are the Problem
Information-carrying radio waves — from cell phones, WiFi routers, land-based portable phones and other wireless devices — have increased dramatically and exponentially over the last few years.
