In vitro cytogenetic effects of 2450 MHz waves on human peripheral blood lymphocytes.
A marked increase in the frequency of chromosome aberrations (including dicentric chromosomes and acentric fragments) and micronuclei was found and the microwave exposure did not influence the cell kinetics nor the sister chromatid exchange (SCE) frequency. Expand
Health risk assessment of dioxin emissions from municipal waste incinerators: the Neerlandquarter (Wilrijk, Belgium).
Dioxin exposure of people in the Neerlandquarter as a function of the food consumption behavior was calculated using a mathematical model (VLIER-HUMAAN) combined with transfer factors and according to the results, just residing in the impact area does not result in a meaningful risk. Expand
Renal function, cytogenetic measurements, and sexual development in adolescents in relation to environmental pollutants: a feasibility study of biomarkers
The findings suggest that current environmental standards are insufficient to avoid measurable biological effects, and biomarkers can be used to detect environmental exposure to pollutants and measure their biological effects before overt disease develops. Expand
Cytogenetic effects of 935.2-MHz (GSM) microwaves alone and in combination with mitomycin C.
The combined exposure of the cells to the radiofrequency fields followed by their cultivation in the presence of mitomycin C revealed a very weak effect when compared to cells exposed toMitomycinC alone, and no direct cytogenetic effect was found. Expand
Screening of medicinal plants used in South African traditional medicine for genotoxic effects.
Dichloromethane and 90% methanol extracts from 51 South African medicinal plants were evaluated for potential genotoxic effects using the bacterial Ames and VITOTOX tests with and without metabolicExpand
Chromosomal aberrations in human lymphocytes induced in vitro by very low doses of X-rays.
It is concluded that the statistical uncertainties are such that below 20 mGy this technique cannot distinguish between a linear or a threshold model. Expand
Genetic, carcinogenic and teratogenic effects of radiofrequency fields.
This paper reviews the literature data on the genetic toxicology of radiofrequency (RF) radiation and focuses on mobile telephone frequencies where possible, finding some investigations gave rather alarming results that should be confirmed and completed by further experiments. Expand
The alkaline comet test on plant cells: a new genotoxicity test for DNA strand breaks in Vicia faba root cells.
Results indicate that the comet assay may be a valuable tool for monitoring DNA damage in plant systems, but there was a significant heterogeneity in the extent of DNA migration within and between seedlings, which may be intrinsic to the assay or indicative of sampling problems. Expand
Cytogenetic effects of 900 MHz (GSM) microwaves on human lymphocytes.
Overall, no indication was found of a mutagenic, and/or co-mutagenic/synergistic effect of this kind of nonionizing radiation. Expand
Investigation of Co-genotoxic Effects of Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Fields In Vivo
This 2-year animal study involving long-term exposures to RF radiation and MX did not provide any evidence for enhanced genotoxicity in rats exposed to RF Radiation, and co-exposures to MX and RF radiation did not significantly increase the response of blood, liver and brain cells compared to MX exposure only.
