Chromosome damage in human cells induced by UMTS mobile telephony radiation.

It is shown that microwave 3G MT EMF/radiation - within the current exposure limits - has significant genotoxic action on human cells, and human exposure to this EMF /radiation should be kept at levels as low as possible.

Human-made electromagnetic fields: Ion forced-oscillation and voltage-gated ion channel dysfunction, oxidative stress and DNA damage (Review)

A complete picture is provided of how human-made EMF exposure may indeed lead to DNA damage and related pathologies, including cancer, and it is suggested that the non-thermal biological effects attributed to RF EMFs are actually due to their ELF components.

The Contribution of In Vivo Mammalian Studies to the Knowledge of Adverse Effects of Radiofrequency Radiation on Human Health

The currently available evidence from in vivo studies on carcinogenicity and reproductive toxicity studies is reviewed in order to summarize the contribution of experimental research to the prevention of the adverse effects of RFR on human health.

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.

Exposure to 10 Hz Pulsed Magnetic Fields Do Not Induce Cellular Senescence in Human Fetal Lung Fibroblasts

Investigation of the effect of 10 Hz pulsed magnetic fields on cellular senescence in a 2BS cell line, isolated from human fetal lung fibroblasts, found that intermittent exposure to 10Hz pulsed MFs at 1.0 mT for 2 weeks induced DNA damage, but no other significant phenotype of cellular senescent cells in 2BS cells.

Methodology of Studying Effects of Mobile Phone Radiation on Organisms: Technical Aspects

The negative influence of non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation on organisms, including humans, has been discussed widely in recent years. This paper deals with the methodology of examining possible

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.

Appeals that matter or not on a moratorium on the deployment of the fifth generation, 5G, for microwave radiation

Warning on the health risks associated with RF presented in the 5G appeal and the letters to the EU Health Commissioner since September, 2017 and the authors' rebuttals are summarized are summarized.



Impact of radio frequency electromagnetic radiation on DNA integrity in the male germline.

While RFEMR does not have a dramatic impact on male germ cell development, a significant genotoxic effect on epididymal spermatozoa is evident and deserves further investigation.

Effect of radiofrequency radiation in cultured mammalian cells: A review

Those work limited to in vitro cultured cells where irradiation conditions were well controlled to evaluate the alleged ill-effect of radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation on health are reviewed.

Electromagnetic fields and DNA damage.

Mobile Phone Radiation Induces Reactive Oxygen Species Production and DNA Damage in Human Spermatozoa In Vitro

RF-EMR in both the power density and frequency range of mobile phones enhances mitochondrial reactive oxygen species generation by human spermatozoa, decreasing the motility and vitality of these cells while stimulating DNA base adduct formation and, ultimately DNA fragmentation.

Mobile Telephony EMFs Effects on Insect Ovarian Cells. The Necessity for Real Exposures Bioactivity Assessment. The Key Role of Polarization, and the “Ion Forced-Oscillation Mechanism”

The continuous and unpredictable variability of the mobile telephony signals, in combination with the fact that they are totally polarized, and the inclusion of Extremely Low Frequencies - due to pulsing and modulation of the microwave carrier - in all modern mobile telecommunication microwave signals, constitute the main reasons for their intense bioactivity.

Measurement of DNA damage after exposure to 2450 MHz electromagnetic radiation.

The alkaline comet assay (single-cell gel electrophoresis), which is reportedly the most sensitive method to assay DNA damage in individual cells, was used to measure DNA damage after in vitro 2450 MHz irradiation.

Cell death induced by GSM 900-MHz and DCS 1800-MHz mobile telephony radiation.

Comparison of Bioactivity Between GSM 900 MHz and DCS 1800 MHz Mobile Telephony Radiation

Both types of radiation were found to decrease significantly and non thermally the insect's reproductive capacity, but GSM 900 MHz seems to be even more bioactive than DCS 1800 MHz, the difference seems to been dependent mostly on field intensity and less on carrier frequency.
