The results suggest that there is widespread concern among the general population about risks to health posed by electric and magnetic fields, and characteristics of the group reporting such hypersensitivity with regard to demographics, other complaints, hypersensitivities, and traditional allergies are described.

The MCS subjects activated odor‐processing brain regions less than controls, despite the reported, and physiologically indicated (decreased RR interval) distress, but showed an odorant‐related increase in activation of the anterior cingulate cortex and cuneus‐precuneus.

It is reported here that effects of MWs from mobile telephones on human lymphocytes are dependent on carrier frequency, and on average, the same response was observed in lymphocytes from hypersensitive and healthy subjects.
Microwaves from UMTS/GSM mobile phones induce long‐lasting inhibition of 53BP1/γ‐H2AX DNA repair foci in human lymphocytes

It is reported for the first time that UMTS MWs affect chromatin and inhibit formation of DNA double‐strand breaks co‐localizing 53BP1/γ‐H2AX DNA repair foci in human lymphocytes from hypersensitive and healthy persons and it is confirmed that effects of GSM MWs depend on carrier frequency.
915 MHz microwaves and 50 Hz magnetic field affect chromatin conformation and 53BP1 foci in human lymphocytes from hypersensitive and healthy persons
Exposure to 50 Hz magnetic field and 915 MHz microwaves under specified conditions of exposure induced comparable responses in lymphocytes from healthy and hypersensitive donors that were similar but not identical to stress response induced by heat shock.

The effects of 884 MHz GSM wireless communication signals on headache and other symptoms: An experimental provocation study
The results showed that headache was more commonly reported after RF exposure than sham, mainly due to an increase in the non-symptom group, which justifies further investigation of possible physiological correlates.

The study results confirm that hypersensitivity to odour is a common feature in women with migraine, and pathophysiologic mechanisms and hypotheses relating odour intolerances and migraine are discussed.

Mobile phone exposure and spatial memory
The symptomatic group improved their performance during RF exposure while there was no such effect in the non-symptomatic group, and a main effect of RF exposure and a significant RF exposure by group effect on distance traveled during the trials revealed.
