Electromagnetic Fields and Miscarriage

Even intermittent exposure to extremely low frequency EMF (ELF-EMF) is reported to increase risk miscarriage.

The California Department of Health Services concluded at the end of its Electric and Magnetic Field Risk Evaluation (2002) that: 

 

"To one degree or another, all three of the DHS scientists are inclined to believe that EMFs can cause some degree of 

increased risk of childhood leukemia, adult brain cancer, Lou Gehrig’s disease (ALS)  and miscarriage."

 

Miscarriage has been associated in at least two scientific studies with intermittent exposure to ELF-EMF

at 16 milligauss (Li et al., 2002;  Lee, Neutra, Hristova, Yost and Hiatt, 2002)  

A 16-milligauss intermittent exposure is relatively high except for some occupational environments, 

during travel on mass transit, or for power line workers.  However, sitting next to an electrical subpanel on a wall, 

being near large power lines, being in proximity to motor-driven equipment and some appliances can create these ELF exposure levels.  

 

ELF-EMF exposure occurs along with RFR exposure when wireless devices such as cellular phones and 

PDAs are worn on the body. Their battery-switching technology typically emit excessively high ELF-EMF 

of several tens to several hundreds of milligauss (mG) during email functions (Sage, Johansson and Sage, S.A., 2007; 

Tuor, Ebert, Schuderer and Kuster, 2005; Linde and Hansson Mild, 1997).
