Study Finds Adverse Impacts of Prenatal EMF Exposure


I came across this interesting study on prenatal EMF impacts:
Yanfeng Ren, Jianping Chen, Maohua Miao, De-Kun Li, Hong Liang, Ziliang Wang, Fen Yang, Xiaowei Sun and Wei Yuan (2018) Prenatal exposure to extremely low frequency magnetic field and its impact on fetal growth. Environmental Health 201918:6 https://doi.org/10.1186/s12940-019-0447-9
Here are the findings from the abstract:

Compared with girls with lower prenatal ELF-MF exposure, girls with higher exposure had a lower birth weight, thinner skinfold of triceps, abdomen and back, and smaller circumference of head, upper arm and abdomen in all three ELF-MF matrices. The differences were statistically significant for birth weight and most other growth measurements (P < 0.05). These measures had no significant difference between higher and lower prenatal ELF-MF exposure in boys except back skinfold thickness. 
Conclusion 
Prenatal exposure to higher ELF-MF levels was associated with decreased fetal growth in girls, but not in boys.
Read the entire open access article here: https://ehjournal.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/s12940-019-0447-9

I was struck by the finding that smaller head circumference in females correlated with higher exposure during pregnancy.

I was reminded of the findings by Moller and Mousseau that Fukushima and Chernobyl birds have smaller heads than birds from lower radiation zones (e.g., see their study here: https://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0016862).

Research by Moller and Mousseau is addressing ionizing radiation but non-ionizing radiation may also be dangerous, especially to developing beings as suggested by the Ren study cited at the top of this post.

I wonder what the 5G network will do?

In 2015, an "international appeal" was made to the UN by scientists concerned about the impacts from 5G's non-ionizing radiation:
International Appeal: Scientists call for protection from non-ionizing electromagnetic field exposure (December 2015) European Journal of Oncology Volume 20(n. 3/4):pp. 180-182 https://www.researchgate.net/publication/298533689_International_Appeal_Scientists_call_for_protection_from_non-ionizing_electromagnetic_field_exposure
Apparently their appeal was disregarded.

Funny that we never seem to consider that we might need to save our own species.....

  1. It seems we will soon be purposely exposing ourselves to dense clouds of deleterious 5g nonionizing radiation.

    We can all be like turkeys in a microwave! We are stupid because the turkeys in the turkey shoot are ourselves!

    It will be like walking around with RADIONUCLIDE poisons and highly oxidative organic poisons activated and catalyzed to do more damage inside of us from constant exposure to extremely dense microwave radiation.



    Emf radiation is also used by industrial chemists to catalyze certain dimerization processes.

    The gluttony and feasting of poisons, radionuclides, small particulate air pollution, ozone smog, and now wallowing in dense clouds of the worse dense - microwave pollution probably cannot get any worse

    2. It is interesting that in China, two cities rose up in protests in massive d demonstrations against nuclear in China. This is the main Reason bill gates had to pull out of China with his evil mini salt-cooled breeder reactor scheme. The scheme, Trump has so generously offered to fund w American taxpayer money and build as he deregulated nuclear here and contrived to change the designation of High level nuclear waste to lo level nuclear waste.



      The Chinese demonstrated for 2 weeks, over their government proposition to build a nuclear waste-plutonium processing plant plant in that city.

      China is liberalizing their economy for renewables and renewables are going gangbusters in China.

      China is severely curtailing its plans for domestic production of nuclear and export of nuclear based on the peoples will!

      I asked a knowledgable friend about why this is.
      How is it that the Chinese are actively allowed to take to the streets to protest nuclear and other environmental issues, while in America you can and will go to jail for protesting pipelines or fracking or get threatened with arrest for questioning high level nuclear waste in a local community?

      They cops and spycops will probably shoot at you and start spying on u individually, too like they did in North Dakota over the pipeline . Now which country is the totalitarian country?



      Her reply was that China’s environmental movement is really strong at the local level – that the central government encourages to some extent because they have such difficulty bringing corrupt provincial officials to heel.

      To me
      In America the whole lot lat and kaboodle-from the federal level to the local level is so corrupt and controlled by the corporations and oligarchs that it is bound repair. That we are just an earthquake , or power outage, or hurricane away from one or more nuclear catastrophes here.

    3. very interesting discussion of environmental activism in China. Thanks for feedback.

    1. In America we need a new paradigm for government if we are too survive, as they are seeking in France .

      Not more of the imperial militarist- neoliberal, centrist-banker globalist bullshit.

      Or the worst Fascist- corporatist bloodsucking, elitist and yes globalist enslavement as well as an authotarian state with rights severely curtailed.

      The fascist-wet-dream state adored by megalomaniac like Trump, LePen Omran, Bolnasaro.

      Where they wholesale sell off countries assets to private corporatations or privatize everything and sell it to saudi Arabia and his corporate cronies as Rump is doing. Rape the resources of America and kill everything and everyone while doing so.

      The big frikin lies for the sake of the corporations, and the oligarch’s totalitarian, henchman that never go away when the authoritarian control is captured with an iron fist.

    2. Environmental opponents press their case, as waste licensing hearings loom in Southwest
      On Dec. 27, 2018, Beyond Nuclear's legal counsel (Diane Curran of Washington, DC, and Mindy Goldstein and Caroline Reiser of Emory University Turner Environmental Law Clinic in Atlanta, GA) filed our first federal court papers in opposition to both the Holtec International/Eddy-Lea Energy Alliance (ELEA), New Mexico, as well as the Waste Control Specialists/Interim Storage Partners (WCS/ISP), Texas centralized interim storage facilities (CISFs) for high-level radioactive waste (HLRW). Beyond Nuclear's contention is that both U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) licensing proceedings violate the Nuclear Waste Policy Act of 1982, as Amended. Beyond Nuclear's legal counsel, as well as our allies (Alliance for Environmental Strategies, Don't Waste Michigan et al., and Sierra Club, represented by legal counsel Nancy Simmons of Albuquerque, NM, Terry Lodge of Toledo, OH, and Wally Taylor of Cedar Rapids, IA, respectively), are preparing for Jan. 23, 2019 NRC Atomic Safety and Licensing Board hearings, to be held in Albuquerque, regarding the Holtec/ELEA CISF proceeding. Meanwhile, Lodge and Taylor, on behalf of Don't Waste MI et al. and Sierra Club, have responded to WCS/ISP motions to strike portions of their interventions against the CISF targeted at TX. All this is but the latest resistance to the environmental injustice of dumping 213,600 metric tons of commercial irradiated nuclear fuel in the Hispanic borderlands of TX and NM (the two CISFs are but 40 miles apart). If opened, one and/or the other of the CISFs would unleash large-scale, high-risk, HLRW trucks, trains, and barges (see infrared photo of a HLRW rail shipment, above right) through a large number of American cities, through most states, and the vast majority of U.S. congressional districts. For more information, see Beyond Nuclear's Centralized Storage and Waste Transportation website sections.

      Donald  Trump has  generously offered to fund Bill Gates Nuclear reactor prototypes and build them. He will use taxpayer money to do so. Trump is busy deregulating nuclear power and nuclear waste designations in America .
      Trump and Perry contrive to change the designation of High level nuclear waste, to lo level nuclear waste.


      Chinese city-folk, in a city slated for a plutonium processing plant, demonstrated for 2 weeks. They protested against the Chinese regional-government proposal, to build a nuclear waste-plutonium processing plant plant in that city.

      China is liberalizing their economy for renewables. Renewables are going gangbusters in China.

      A knowledgeable person, says
      that China’s environmental movement is really strong at the local level .  She says that the central government of China  encourages demonstrations  to some extent, because they have such difficulty bringing corrupt provincial officials to heel.


      The American government system, from  the federal level, to the state level,  to the local level are so controlled by the corporations, regulatory capture by corporations , corrupt politicians at all levels, that we  are in trouble.
      We are one earthquake , or power outage, or hurricane away from one or more nuclear catastrophes in the United States.

  3. During the last 100,000 years human beings have gone through some very serious catastrophic circumstances. 75,000 years ago a gigantic volcanic explosion reduced the sunlight by 90% and lowered the earth's temperature significantly. This lasted for about six years. I think scientists underestimate the number of survivors which they estimate in the low thousands. People are extremely resilient and tough. Anyway things like this happen on our planet which is sometimes very hospitable and sometimes very hostile to humans. The three main enemies are volcanoes, asteroids and earth quakes. Perhaps disease should be added to the list. It looks like being a hunter gather was best as long as that life style was viable. Better nutrition and more leisure.
    Every move humans make for security and well being eventually gets countered by Nature or hostile gods. More science and technology clearly illustrate that.

    My point is that we are already living in a utopia. Look at all the food in a grocery store, all the medical treatments available, all the wonderful heated housing . . . we can have no idea what it was like back millennia ago when families starved, died from wounds, froze to death . . . No, this is utopia. And everything one might do to make it better will bite back. And that will hurt. Look what Marxian utopias did to its subject!

      The universe is destructive as well as creative. That humans beings are creating destructive technology seems to be in harmony with the cosmos.

      "Funny that we never seem to consider that we might need to save our own species....." Humanity's shadow side has a different set of goals kept well hidden.
