Electromagnetic Fields Can Affect Pregnant Women’s Babies

A study published in the Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine strapped monitors to pregnant women to measure their exposure to low-frequency electromagnetic fields. These are fields generated by everything from power lines, microwave ovens, hair dryers and vacuum cleaners.

The researchers followed the children over their first 13 years and found that those born to mothers with the highest levels of exposure were three times as likely to have asthma as kids whose moms had the lowest exposure.
