“It is so simple to move your cell phone away from your abdomen when you’re pregnant. Why not do it? There’s essentially no downside to being cautious and protecting your baby.” -Dr Hugh Taylor, Yale University

One focus of current research is wireless radiation, also referred to as microwave radiation or radio frequency radiation (RFR). Wireless radiation is emitted by the myriad of wireless devices we encounter every day. It was once thought to be relatively harmless. Decades ago, when exposure thresholds were established, the thermal or heating effects of human tissue were the main concern.

However, we now know that wireless radiation can cause non-thermal biological effects as well, including damage to cells and DNA, even at low levels. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) of the World Health Organization (WHO) recently classified wireless radiation as possibly carcinogenic to humans, and numerous animal studies have shown neurological effects, including behavioral disorders, that may lead to long-term health consequences. All of this suggests that taking certain precautions around wireless radiation is appropriate for our most vulnerable populations, including pregnant women.
