Numerous impacts on cell growth and genetics from low-level radiation have been observed. These include cell growth retardation, cell damage, altered gene expression, and altered fetal development.
In particular, multiple studies have found magnetic fields, at levels that we are exposed to daily, to impair cell attachment and growth in human and non-human cells. They have also been found to damage human cells through decreased incorporation of key amino acids. Altered fetal development from low-level electromagnetic radiation exposure has been observed in mice and non-mammalian vertebrates – including bone and blood vessel development; which can all cause birth defects or abnormalities.
