The continuous emissions from mobile base stations may impact health on the residents nearby. In the present study health complaints of those residing near two base stations for four to ten years (n=113) and in those with no stations (n=53) were correlated with the emitting radiations. The groups matched for age, gender and smoking habits. Power density measurements (n=166) were significantly higher values in the areas with base stations (11.49±0.17 W/m 2 , 11.18±0.13 W/m 2 ) in comparison to… Expand

DNA and Chromosomal Damage in Residents Near a Mobile Phone Base Station
TLDR
Age, diet, location of residences, distance from mobile phone base station and phone-set Specific Absorbance Rate values were significant predictors of genetic damage and indicate that 24x7 continuous exposure from base stations may pose genetic-damage threat to the populace residing nearby.

Subjective symptoms, sleeping problems, and cognitive performance in subjects living near mobile phone base stations
TLDR
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. Expand
Subjective complaints of people living near mobile phone base stations in Poland
TLDR
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. Expand
Neurobehavioral effects among inhabitants around mobile phone base stations.
TLDR
Inhabitants living nearby mobile phone base stations are at risk for developing neuropsychiatric problems and some changes in the performance of neurobehavioral functions either by facilitation or inhibition, so revision of standard guidelines for public exposure to RER from mobilePhone base station antennas and using of NBTB for regular assessment and early detection of biological effects among inhabitants around the stations are recommended.

Mobile Phone Users: Another High Health Risk Group
Abstract The mobile (cellular/cell) phone combines the technology of the wireless communication with that of the telephone and uses specific frequencies called microwaves, a sub-set of radio wavesExpand
Epidemiological Evidence for a Health Risk from Mobile Phone Base Stations
TLDR
It is found that eight of the 10 studies reported increased prevalence of adverse neurobehavioral symptoms or cancer in populations living at distances < 500 meters from base stations, suggesting that current guidelines may be inadequate in protecting the health of human populations. Expand
Health hazards of mobile phones: an Indian perspective.
TLDR
This article attempts to present the basic biophysics of these devices and explain the health hazards of electromagnetic radiation exposure in terms of thermal and non-thermal effects and presents some preventive measures that can reduce the risk of these hazards. Expand
THE MICROWAVE SYNDROME – FURTHER ASPECTS OF A SPANISH STUDY
A health survey was carried out in La Ñora, Murcia, Spain, in the vicinity of two GSM 900/1800 MHz cellular phone base stations. The E-field (~ 400 MHz – 3 GHz) measured in the bedroom was divided inExpand
Does Short-Term Exposure to Mobile Phone Base Station Signals Increase Symptoms in Individuals Who Report Sensitivity to Electromagnetic Fields? A Double-Blind Randomized Provocation Study
TLDR
Short-term exposure to a typical GSM base station-like signal did not affect well-being or physiological functions in sensitive or control individuals, and this difference was likely to be due to the effect of order of exposure rather than the exposure itself. Expand
Mortality by neoplasia and cellular telephone base stations in the Belo Horizonte municipality, Minas Gerais state, Brazil.
TLDR
The purpose of this research was to verify the existence of a spatial correlation between base station (BS) clusters and cases of deaths by neoplasia in the Belo Horizonte municipality, Minas Gerais state, Brazil, from 1996 to 2006 and to measure the human exposure levels to EMF where there is a major concentration of cellular telephone transmitter antennas.

Safety Measurements of Electromagnetic Fields Radiated from Mobile Base Stations in the Western Region of Saudi Arabia
TLDR
The results show that EMF levels at all surveyed sites are far below the National Guidelines for public exposure to RF and that the MPPs are found within the distance range suggested in the CITC guidelines. Expand
