Do you think mobile phones are dangerous to unborn babies in the womb in pregnancy? well after todays news you may want to think again when radiation is emitted.  see this news extract “Mobile phones are basically radio sets and emit electromagnetic signals that can penetrate human body. It has been claimed that some parts of the human head are very sensitive to damage due to increases in temperature caused by radio waves.

Grimly warning about electromagnetic pollution, Professor Henry Lai of Washington University School of Medicine prophesized that human DNA may ominously be mutated as an effect of its long-term exposure to microwave radiation, proving radio waves to be more dangerous than tobaccos.

International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) set electromagnetic field (EMF) safety limits to ensure that humans are not exposed to excessive radiations that may cause brain tumors, leukemia, birth defects, miscarriages, chronic fatigue, headaches, cataracts, heart problems, stress, nausea, chest pain, forgetfulness, cancer and other health problems.
