Vernon et al. recently reported a significant increase in the proportion of first-time ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients without standard modifiable cardiovascular risk factors (hypercholesterolaemia, hypertension, diabetes and smoking). While the authors correctly highlighted the need for discovering new mechanisms of coronary heart disease based on theirs and other complementing data, we would like to draw the attention of researchers in cardiovascular disease (CVD) to… 

The effects of exposure to different noise frequencies on the prevalence of metabolic syndrome

This study aimed to quantify and clarify the effects of exposures to different noise frequencies on the prevalence of the metabolic syndrome (MetS) in the thermal power plant industry in the west of Iran during 2017 and did not find any significant increased risk of MetS in the low exposed groups.

Evidence for a Connection Between COVID-19 and Exposure to Radiofrequency Radiation from Wireless Telecommunications Including Microwaves and Millimeter Waves

RFR is a ubiquitous environmental stressor that contributes to adverse health outcomes of COVID-19 and is invoke the Precautionary Principle and strongly recommend a moratorium on 5G wireless infrastructure at this crucial time to help mitigate the pandemic.

Wireless technology is an environmental stressor requiring new understanding and approaches in health care

There is an extensive evidence base revealing that significant stress to human biological systems is being imposed by exposure to everyday wireless communication devices and supporting infrastructure, compelling enough to warrant an update in medical education and practice.

Evidence for a connection between coronavirus disease-19 and exposure to radiofrequency radiation from wireless communications including 5G

WCR has become a ubiquitous environmental stressor that it is recommended that all people, particularly those suffering from SARS-CoV-2 infection, reduce their exposure to WCR as much as reasonably achievable until further research better clarifies the systemic health effects associated with chronic WCR exposure.

Reviews on Environmental Health

The fifth generation of radiofrequency communication, 5G, is currently being rolled out worldwide. Since September 2017, the EU 5G Appeal has been sent six times to the EU, requesting a moratorium on

5G wireless deployment and health risks: Time for a medical discussion in Australia and New Zealand

There is an urgent need for clinicians and medical scientists in the Australia-New Zealand region to engage in an objective discussion around the potential health impacts of the fifth generation (5G)

The European Union prioritises economics over health in the rollout of radiofrequency technologies

Abstract The fifth generation of radiofrequency communication, 5G, is currently being rolled out worldwide. Since September 2017, the EU 5G Appeal has been sent six times to the EU, requesting a

The development of a QA process in the carotid ultrasound scanning protocol used within the UK Biobank Imaging Enhancement Study is described, along with the evaluation of this process from the first 2560 participants.

Biological Risks of Using Non-Thermal Non-Ionizing Electromagnetic Fields

The purpose of this work is to analyze the negative effects of the use of non-thermal coherent electromagnetic radiation of extremely high frequencies and precautionary recommendations based on the scientific and practical experience of using microwave acupuncture methods in the conditions of medical institutions are formulated.

These guidelines provide risk charts, Systematic Coronary Risk Evaluation (SCORE), predicting the 10-year risk of fatal cardiovascular disease including stroke deaths in the 40–65-year age group at given levels of blood pressure and cholesterol in women and men, smokers and nonsmokers.

Elevated levels of oxidative stress as a prognostic predictor of major adverse cardiovascular events in patients with coronary artery disease.

Oxidative stress may represent a useful additional tool in the prediction of MACE in CAD, and was an independent predictor of developing MACEs in angiographically proven patients.

Alteration of diurnal rhythms of blood pressure and heart rate to workers exposed to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields.

Healthy men aged 28-49 years, working on a pattern of 12-24-12-48 h, exhibited typical, well-preserved diurnal rhythms of blood pressure and heart rate with two maxima and one minimum and changes were more pronounced among workers exposed to high intensities of radiofrequency EMF.

The influence of the call with a mobile phone on heart rate variability parameters in healthy volunteers.

It was shown that the call with a mobile phone may change the autonomic balance in healthy subjects and changes in heart rate variability could be affected by electromagnetic field but the influence of speaking cannot be excluded.

Evaluation of selected biochemical parameters in the saliva of young males using mobile phones

Results suggest that exposure to electromagnetic radiation may exert an oxidative stress on human cells as evidenced by the increase in the concentration of the superoxide radical anion released in the saliva of cell phone users.

Heart rate variability (HRV) analysis in radio and TV broadcasting stations workers

The results indicate that exposure to radiofrequency EMF may affect the neurovegetative regulation in workers exposed to UHF-VHF radio frequency electromagnetic fields.
