Radiation from smartphones may up miscarriage risk: Study

Exposure to non-ionising radiation from smartphones, wi-fi routers and microwaves during pregnancy may significantly increase the risk of miscarriage, a study warns.

Non-ionising radiation from magnetic fields is produced when electric devices are in use and electricity is flowing.

It can be generated by a number of environmental sources, including electric appliances, power lines and transformers, wireless devices and wireless networks.

Humans are exposed to magnetic fields via close proximity to these sources while they are in use. PTI
