The problem of health effects of electromagnetic fields (EMF) emitted by cellular phone base stations evokes much interest in view of the fact that people living in their vicinity are fated to continuous exposure to EMF. None of the studies carried out throughout the world have revealed excessive values of standards adopted by the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP). A questionnaire was used as a study tool. The results of the questionnaire survey reveal that… Expand
Does chronic exposure to radiofrequency radiations from GSM base stations have health effects
The level of RFR emitted from the sampled base station was found to be much lower than the ICNIRP limits and the result for both the clinical measurements and haematological analysis were essentially within normal limits. Expand
Neurobehavioral effects among inhabitants around mobile phone base stations.
Inhabitants living nearby mobile phone base stations are at risk for developing neuropsychiatric problems and some changes in the performance of neurobehavioral functions either by facilitation or inhibition, so revision of standard guidelines for public exposure to RER from mobilePhone base station antennas and using of NBTB for regular assessment and early detection of biological effects among inhabitants around the stations are recommended.

The Importance of Quantification of Data in Studies on the Health Effects of Exposure to Electromagnetic Fields Generated by Mobile Base Stations
It was found that exposure to RF-EMF emitted by mobile base stations significantly affected the residents' health and the distance between the mobile phone base stations and the homes had a significant effect on the residents’ health. Expand
Awareness and Self-Reported Health Hazards of Electromagnetic Waves from Mobile Phone Towers in Dhaka, Bangladesh: A Pilot Study
A number of respondents mentioned recent health effects but the association with BTS could not be established, and awareness about the possible health hazards from EMW of BTS is low among the inhabitants of Dhaka city. Expand
Health effects of Mobile Phone Corresponding
The increased use of mobile phone by the public is accompanied by a wave of contradictory reports about the possible health effects, which result from exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF) by theExpand
Evaluation of Electromagnetic Radiation level in the Outdoor from Wireless Transmission Systems in Northern West Bank – Palestine
Exposure to electromagnetic fields is a major public concern due to the possible hazardous effects on health caused by exposure to these radiations. The aims of this study were to measureExpand

Results indicate that apartments in building complexes suffer from higher radiation sources due to the higher population density at these buildings, and houses suffer from a smaller number of neighbouring Access Points they also show a high radiation level. Expand
Level of Radiofrequency (RF) Radiations from GSM Base Stations and its Biological Effects on Albino Mice, Mus musculus
The relevance of these findings in setting radiofrequency radiation exposure guidelines and the need for more studies with widely varying biological parameters is very necessary as Nigeria leaps further into the communication age are very necessary. Expand
Health Hazards of Mobile Information Communication Technologies
During recent years, the prevalence of mobile phone users has increased, and concerns have been raised that the use has increased dramatically without sufficient understanding of the potentialExpand
Impact of radiofrequency radiation on DNA damage and antioxidants in peripheral blood lymphocytes of humans residing in the vicinity of mobile phone base stations
Evaluating the effect of RFR on the DNA damage and antioxidant status in cultured human peripheral blood lymphocytes of individuals residing in the vicinity of mobile phone base stations and comparing it with healthy controls revealed a significant association among reduced GSH concentration, CAT concentration, catalase activities, and rise in lipid peroxidation when compared to controls.
