Article type: Original Paper Introduction: Electromagnetic waves that are of higher energy than visible light transmit information between mobile phones and antennas BTS (Base Transceivers Station). The increasing use of mobile phones due to the proliferation of antennas is a matter of concern. The present study aimed to investigate the correlation between distance from the BTS antennas and the quality of sleep and life of nearby residents. Material and Methods: For the assessment of the…

Does exposure to radiofrequency radiation (RFR) affect the circadian rhythm of rest-activity patterns and behavioral sleep variables in humans?

ABSTRACT We evaluated the effects of the exposure to radio-frequency radiation emanating from the base transceiver station (BTS) on the characteristics of circadian rest-activity rhythm and



Subjective symptoms, sleeping problems, and cognitive performance in subjects living near mobile phone base stations

Despite very low exposure to HF-EMF, effects on wellbeing and performance cannot be ruled out, as shown by recently obtained experimental results; however, mechanisms of action at these low levels are unknown.

Mobile Phone Base Stations Health Effects

This study shows that inhabitants living nearby mobile phone base stations are at risk for developing non specific health symptoms, the facing position appears to be the worst one for distances from cellular phone base station < 100 m, so more research concerning the effects of radiofrequency radiation from base stations is indicated.

Subjective complaints of people living near mobile phone base stations in Poland

The explanation why there was no correlation between the electric field strength and frequency of subjective symptoms but found a correlation between subjective symptoms and distance from base station needs further studies.

Measurement and analysis of electromagnetic pollution generated by GSM-900 mobile phone networks in Erciyes University, Turkey

The electromagnetic radiation levels of base stations were measured at 80 different points in Erciyes University (ERU), Turkey and it was observed that no area in ERU exceeded the national and international limits.

UMTS Base Station-like Exposure, Well-Being, and Cognitive Performance

The influence of a Universal Mobile Telecommunications System base station-like signal on well-being and cognitive performance in subjects with and without self-reported sensitivity to RF EMF is investigated.

Mobile phone base stations and adverse health effects: phase 1 of a population-based, cross-sectional study in Germany

A substantial proportion of the German population is concerned about adverse health effects caused by exposure from mobile phone base stations, and a slightly higher prevalence of health complaints near base stations can not however be fully explained by attributions or concerns.
