Reaction of the immune system to low-level RF/MW exposures.

Effect of electromagnetic radiations on neurodegenerative diseases- technological revolution as a curse in disguise.

The aim of the present review was to have an insight in whether and how cumulative electro-magnetic field exposure is a risk factor for neurodegenerative disorders.

Exposure to 1.8 GHz electromagnetic fields affects morphology, DNA-related Raman spectra and mitochondrial functions in human lympho-monocytes

The data presented warn for health safety of people involved in long-term exposure to electromagnetic fields, although further studies are required to pinpoint the leukocyte cellular subset(s) selectively targeted by the EMFs action and the mechanisms by which it is achieved.

ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELD THERAPY AND IMMUNE MECHANISMS WHICH ARE INVOLVED IN ANTI-INFLAMMATORY RESPONSE

The experiment reveals that the EMF interferes with the immune and oxidative systems, becomes chronic and plays a key role in the development of serious diseases.

Effect of electromagnetic field exposure on the reproductive system

The effects of EMFs on reproductive function are summarized according to the types of EMF, wave type, strength, and duration of exposure at cellular and organism levels.

Electromagnetic field induced biological effects in humans.

Electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS) is a phenomenon characterized by the appearance of symptoms after exposure of people to electromagnetic fields, generated by EHS, characterized as a syndrome with a broad spectrum of non-specific multiple organ symptoms.

Extremely low frequency electromagnetic fields as effectors of cellular responses in vitro: Possible immune cell activation

It is envisage that EMF exposure can cause both acute and chronic effects that are mediated by increased free radical levels, and may be utilized to positively influence certain aspects of the immune response, and could be useful for specific therapeutic applications.

GSM Base Station Electromagnetic Radiation and Oxidative Stress in Rats

A gigahertz transverse electromagnetic (GTEM) cell was used as an exposure environment for plane wave conditions of far-field free space EM field propagation at the GSM base transceiver station (BTS) frequency of 945 MHz, and effects on oxidative stress in rats were investigated.

Combined effects of traffic and electromagnetic fields on the immune system of fertile atopic women.

Key parameters of immune functions showed absence of significant difference between groups A and C and a marked separation of groups B and D, suggesting that ELMF have a greater influence on atopic women exposed to traffic than on non-atopic ones.
