Prenatal EMF Exposures Can Lead to Childhood Obesity

Posted by Dr. Louis Slesin:

De-Kun Li, an epidemiologist at Kaiser Permanente in Oakland, California, has a new paper out showing that EMF exposures in the womb are linked to an increased risk of childhood obesity.

“Maternal exposure to high [magnetic fields] during pregnancy may be a new and previously unknown factor contributing to the world-wide epidemic of childhood obesity/overweight,” Li writes in a paper posted today by Scientific Reports, a peer-reviewed, open access journal owned by the group that publishes Nature.

One thought on “Prenatal EMF Exposures Can Lead to Childhood Obesity”

  1. “The meter collected MF measurements in the frequency range of 40–800 Hz every 10 seconds…”

    >> The article doesn’t have much to say about microwave frequencies.

    “This parallel in the epidemic of obesity/overweight with massively increased use of EMF-generating appliances, and wireless networks and devices during the last a few decades warrants closer examination.”

    >> Then why don’t they study that…?

    >> As usual, too much speculation, and not enough information. Ugh.
