Study reports in the ElectrosmogReport
Studies to date on damage to the reproductive organs caused by mobile communications is extensive and unambiguous. Results show pathological effects on male and female organs. Affected are both the man’s sperm and testicles and the ovaries and oogenesis (egg maturation) of the woman. This is why the environmental and consumer organization for protection against electromagnetic radiation Diagnose-Funk published a study overview in the series Brennpunkt (February 2016 edition) titled “130 studies. Smartphones and tablets damage testicles, sperm and embryos ”. More studies on the impairment of fertility caused by cell phone and WiFi radiation were also presented in the ElectrosmogReport (September 2019 edition).
Scientific article reveals a variety of effets
Another scientific article worth mentioning, titled “Radiation and Male Fertility“, was published in the medical journal “Reproductive Biology and Endocrinology” in 2018. The international authors Kavindra Kumar Kesari, Ashok Agarwal and Ralf Henkel stated that exposure to mobile phones, microwave ovens, laptops or Wifi has harmful effects on the testicles. These can affect sperm count, morphology, and motility and lead to:
- DNA damage
- Genomic instability
- Disturbances in protein kinases, hormones and antioxidant enzymes result.
Again, the anomalies depended on physical parameters such as exposure duration, distance from the radiation source, power density and penetration depth.
Studies on the subject of electrosmog
Diagnose-Funk, an independent environmental and consumer organisation in German-speaking countries, is a big advocate for protection against electromagnetic radiation. It is therefore their aim to inform and sensitize the public about this topic. The organisation discusses the latest studies in its publication ElektrosmogReport and also archives them in an online database, where you can find out about the most up-to-date and important studies on EMF and health.
Children are particularly at risk from electrosmog exposure
The American study by the scientists Lloyd Morgan, Santosh Kesari, and Devra Lee Davis from 2014 demonstrated that children are especially hypersensitive when it comes to electrosmog. They absorb much more microwave radiation than adults; twice as much in the skull and up to ten times more in the bone marrow. For this reason, they are exposed to significantly higher health risks. These include disorders of neural development, ADHD and an increased risk of brain tumors. The correct dosage for children is just as little known as the long-term consequences. Due to their smaller body size, thinner bones, their bodies’ higher water content and more active metabolism compared to adults, current radiation protection limits can’t be applied to children. The authors therefore call for for education and precautionary policy.
Doctors and scientists warn about mobile phone expansion
Leading international scientists, doctors and environmental protection organisations warn urgently to: “Stop 5G on earth and in space“. This appeal was made to the United Nations, the World Health Organization, the European Union, the Council of Europe and the governments of all nations. Over 180 doctors and scientists from 35 countries have signed a petition calling for the expansion of 5G technology to be stopped, as long as the possible health risks have not been clarified.
Investigate Europe, a pan-European team of investigative journalists, also reviewed the topic of mobile network expansion, including 5G. This informative video was created in 2019:
