The Baby Safe Project – Joint Statement on Pregnancy & RF Radiation

June 16, 2024

We join together as physicians, scientists and educators to express our concern about the risk that radiofrequency (RF) radiation poses to pregnancy and to urge pregnant women to limit their exposures.

We recognize that the exquisitely delicate systems that direct the development of human life are vulnerable to environmental insults, and that even minute exposures during critical windows of development may have serious and life-long consequences.

We know that the scientific process demands a thorough and exhaustive examination of the possible impact of RF radiation on health; however, we believe substantial evidence of risk, rather than absolute proof of harm, must be the trigger for action to protect public health.

We call on the research community to conduct more studies to identify the mechanisms by which a fetus could be affected by RF radiation exposures. We call on our elected leaders to support such research and to advance policies and regulations that limit exposures for pregnant women. We call on the industry to implement and explore technologies and designs that will reduce radiation exposures until such research is carried out.

We affirm
 our role as health and science professionals to inform the public about the potential dangers associated with early-life exposures to RF radiation, and invite all professionals engaged in obstetric, pediatric, and environmental health advocacy to join us in our quest to ensure the safety and health of future generations.
