Repercussion of Electromagnetic Radiation from Cell Towers/Mobiles and Their Impact on Migratory Birds
Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR) are the radiations where the electric and magnetic field vary simultaneously and which generally comprises of x-rays, gamma rays and visible light. They are generally
Environmental Impact of Radiofrequency Fields from Mobile Phone Base Stations
This review examines the potential environmental impact of radiofrequency (RF) fields emitted by mobile phone base station antennas and other sources of RF radiation. Overall, many alarming
Orientation studies of a cell-phone mast to assess electromagnetic radiation exposure level
Electromagnetic radiation emitted by cellphone towers is a new form of environmental pollution and is a new health hazard. This radiofrequency radiation pollution is an issue of world wide concern
Electromagnetic Radiations: A Possible Impact on Population of House Sparrow (Passer Domesticus)
The modern world is a full of contamination of radiofrequency (RF), “electrosmog” in the urban centers especially after the rapid introduction of mobile telecommunications systems. The aim of this

Estimating the microwave/RF pollution by measuring radiation power densities near schools and hospitals of Chandigarh city in India indicated that the exposure levels in the city were below the ICNIRP limit, but much above the biological limit.
Effects of electromagnetic radiations generated by mobile antennas on the human brain
The dielectric human tissue properties and their evolution will be approached according to the variations of the frequency, as well as the resolution of the equations of Maxwell's in order to determine the expressions of the electromagnetic fields in the human body.
The study of the biological effects associated with exposure to electromagnetic energy at radio-frequency/microwave frequencies is a mature scientific discipline. Exposure to electromagnetic fields
Comments on environmental impact of radiofrequency fields from mobile phone base stations
ABSTRACT This article is an answer to the review paper from Verschaeve (2014). This review paper attempted to dismiss every study that shows negative effects of microwave radiation on living
Electromagnetic Pollution as a Possible Explanation for the Decline of House Sparrows in Interaction with Other Factors
In recent decades, there has been a decline of the House Sparrow (Passer domesticus), mainly in European cities, and several hypotheses have been proposed that attempt to determine the causes of this


The incidence of electromagnetic pollution on the amphibian decline: Is this an important piece of the puzzle?
A bibliographical review on the possible effects of radiofrequency radiation from wireless telecommunications on living organisms and its impact on amphibians is presented and some methodologies that could be useful to determine the adverse health effects are proposed.

Results of studies of the biological effects of low-intensity modulated microwave irradiation, including that from cellular telephones, lead to the conclusion that irradiation does not have pathological effects on the body, but does induce the usual non-specific adaptive reactions.
Biological Effects of Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Field
Radiofrequency electromagnetic field=radiation (RFR) covers a large segment of the electromagnetic spectrum and falls within the nonionizing bands. Its frequency ranges between 3KHz and 300GHz.
‘ The Physiological and Environmental Effects of Non-ionising Electromagnetic Radiation
This Study focuses upon an aspect of how living organisms, and humans, in particular, can be adversely affected by highly coherent electromagnetic fields of technological origin, in a way that is not

This review focuses on research examining the effects of EMFs on birds; most studies indicate that EMF exposure of birds generally changes, but not always consistently in effect or in direction, their behavior, reproductive success, growth and development, physiology and endocrinology, and oxidative stress under EMF conditions.
The Results of Experimental Exposition of Mice by Mobile Telephones
Today's widespread use of mobile phones has raised the concern about the possible harmful biological effects of long-term exposure to the microwave radiation of low intensity. In vivo investigations
Physics and biology of mobile telephony
Growing concern over the safety of using mobile phones and male fertility.
There are growing concerns about the possible hazards of electromagnetic waves emitted by mobile phones on human health, and the results of animal studies should be interpreted with caution when considering their application to humans.
SUMMARY.—Possible effects of the electromagnetic waves used in the wireless telephony on wildlife. A bibliographical revision of the possible effects of the waves used in the wireless telephony on
A Possible Effect of Electromagnetic Radiation from Mobile Phone Base Stations on the Number of Breeding House Sparrows (Passer domesticus)
The data show that fewer House Sparrow males were seen at locations with relatively high electric field strength values of GSM base stations and therefore support the notion that long-term exposure to higher levels of radiation negatively affects the abundance or behavior of House Sparrows in the wild.
