Obesity and exposure to electromagnetic fields link

US perinatal epidemiologists measured magnetic field exposure of 733 pregnant women over 24 hours on a typical day, then monitored the weight and growth of their children for up to 13 years. The children were assessed 33 times on average.

The results showed a dose-response relationship, with the children of women exposed to magnetic fields >1.5mG for 2.4 hours a day having an almost 70% higher chance of being obese than those less exposed.

Furthermore, among children followed up for more than 11 years, perinatal exposure to >1.5mG in 2.4 hours resulted
