Disturbance in haematological parameters induced by exposure to electromagnetic fields

The use of electrical devices has gradually increased throughout the last century, and scientists have suggested that electromagnetic fields (EMF) generated by such devices may have harmful effects

Cell Phone EMF Affects Rat Pulmonary Tc-MIBI Uptake and Oxidative Stress

The use of cell phone EMF during the preparation and imaging process could increase absorption of radiopharmaceutical by the pulmonary system and may affect lung-to-heart specific activity ratio, so affect to correct diagnosis by the physician.

Autonomic Nervous System Disorder Due to Exposure RF Jamming

The results clearly indicate that jammer radiation induced high fluctuations in heart rate variability of recovery period (after15 minutes using jammer) and show that the change ofheart rate variability signal during jammer exposure is not permanent.

Magnetic Fields and Cancer: Epidemiology, Cellular Biology, and Theranostics

The epidemiology of residential/domestic and occupational exposure to MFs and cancer is reviewed, with reference to leukemia, brain, and breast cancer, and in vivo and in vitro effects of MFs on cancer are reviewed considering both human and animal cells.

Insights in the biology of extremely low-frequency magnetic fields exposure on human health

According to the literature review, exposure to ELF-EMF has an adverse biological effect depending on the current intensity, strength of the magnetic field, and duration of exposure and there is a lack of comprehensive mechanisms for explaining the biological effect of ELF -EMF.

In luence ofWithania somnifera(L) Dunal Root Extract on Rat Kidney Exposed to Electromagnetic Waves fromMobile Phone: A Histopathological and Antioxidant Analysis

The consequences of 4Gmobile phone emission on MDA, anti-oxidants, antioxidant marker, and histo-pathological variations in the kidney of rats are discovered to raise open awareness of promising harmful consequences of cell phone radiofrequency EMR exposure.

Cell Phone EMF Affects Rat Pulmonary Tc-MIBI Uptake and Oxidative Stress

The use of cell phone EMF during the preparation and imaging process could increase absorption of radiopharmaceutical by the pulmonary system and may affect lung-to-heart specific activity ratio, so affect to correct diagnosis by the physician.

Mobile phone-induced myocardial oxidative stress: protection by a novel antioxidant agent caffeic acid phenethyl ester

The increased levels of MDA and NO and the decreased levels of myocardial SOD, CAT and GSH-Px activities demonstrate the role of oxidative mechanisms in 900 MHz mobile phone-induced heart tissue damage and CAPE, via its free radical scavenging and antioxidant properties, ameliorates oxidative heart injury.

Electromagnetic pulses induce fluctuations in blood pressure in rats

Significant alterations in arterial blood pressure were observed in rats exposed to EMP exposure while heart rate was not altered, and the heart rates in sham- and EMP-exposed rats were not significantly changed.

Interaction of Electromagnetic Field – Biological System and Three Important Diseases : Cancer , Diabet and Cardiac Diseases

With the impact of EM fields, body atoms and molecules may lose the electrical balance between them, biochemical activities may be affected and electrical structure in the communication of cells and tissues may be disrupted.

Effect of low frequency Electromagnetic Field on cardiovascular system: An ultrastructural and immunohistochemical study

The aim of the present study is to investigate ultrastructural changes of heart and aorta in EMF-exposed rats for this purpose Wistar rats were exposed to 3mT EMF for 4months, 4hours/day.

Effect of Long Term Mobile Phone Exposure on Oxidative-Antioxidative Processes and Nitric Oxide in Rats

It is shown that 900 MHz radiofrequency radiation emitted from mobile phones exhibited an increase on MDA and TOS levels, which may play a role to induce oxidative damage by increasing lipid peroxidation and oxidative stress.

Study of the Cardiovascular Effects of Exposure to Electromagnetic Field

Long-term exposure to cell phone EMF increases the liability for hypertension reflected on the ECG and cardiac weights which is accompanied by histopathological changes in the myocardium.

Pathological changes associated with experimental 900-MHz electromagnetic wave exposure in rats

It is demonstrated that the use of GSM-like EMF at these intensities and duration can induce pathological lesions in the heart, liver, or kidney, but these are not EMF specific.

Effects of Electromagnetic Radiation Use on Oxidant/Antioxidant Status and DNA Turn-over Enzyme Activities in Erythrocytes and Heart, Kidney, Liver, and Ovary Tissues From Rats: Possible Protective Role of Vitamin C

The results suggest that EMR at the frequency generated by a cell phone causes oxidative stress and peroxidation in the erythrocytes and kidney tissues from rats and vitamin C seems to make partial protection against the oxidant stress.
