Dr. Olle Johansson, noted Swedish researcher at the Karolinka Institute in Stockholm, recently compiled this list of studies that show how ants, bees and children respond to exposure to electromagnetic radiation emitted by wireless technologies.

Experts and doctors warn: Pregnant women and children should not be exposed to wireless radiation.

"But we humans are mostly just standing around talking about this, whereas ants and bees are fleeing the field!"

DEBATE: On July 3, 2014, an international team of doctors, scientific experts, and non-profit organizations called for pregnant women to limit exposure to wireless radiation from cell phones and other devices, by taking simple steps to protect themselves and their unborn children, writes Associate Professor Olle Johansson -- whose article SvD (Svenska Dagbladet) and DN (Dagens Nyheter) refused to publish.

The information campaign entitled The Babysafe Project is coordinated by The Grassroots Environmental Education and Environmental Health Trust, and is based on independent, scientific research which links exposure to wireless radiation from cell phones during pregnancy to neurological problems and behavioral disorders similar to ADHD/ADD in children.

Already in 2010, after a consensus meeting 2009 in Seletun, Norway, myself and a group of scientists voiced strong warnings and recommendations about wireless dangers in the Seletun report, which subsequently became the basis for the Council of Europe's resolution No. 1815 in 2011.

A team of researchers in California conducted a major study of cell-phone use among pregnant women. For one year the team looked at all the kids who were born in Denmark, and interviewed the mothers about their cell-phone use during pregnancy, as well as the child's later cell-phone usage and behavior pattern. As it turned out, to the scientists' surprise, the mothers who had the most frequent cell-phone use during their pregnancy consequently had the greatest risk of having children with behavioral difficulties.

This included both autism and ADHD/ADD-like behaviors. The greater risk was statistically significant and increased with further cell-phone use by the child. [Divan H A, Kheifets L, Obel C, Olsen J (2008) "Prenatal and postnatal exposure to cell phone use and behavioral problems in children", Epidemiology 2008; 19: 523-529.]

Fetuses are affected

Make no mistake, this is not limited to just children: even fetuses are significantly affected. A team of researchers, lead by Mr. Jing, of the Department of Public Health, Shandong University in China, has studied the effects of cell-phone radiation on pregnant, rats' fetuses. [Jing J, Yuhua Z, Xiao-Qian Y, Rongping J, Dong-Mei G, Xi C, "The influence of microwave radiation from cellular phone on fetal rat brain", Biol Electromagn by 2012; Jan 23.].

The researchers measured changes in neuronal signal substances and effects on antioxidant enzyme that protect our cells from oxidative stress. The conclusion was that cell-phone radiation during pregnancy gave rise to damage in the fetus' brains! The rat babies were already born with brain injuries. What parent would want that for its offspring?
