The use of cellular phones is now ubiquitous through most of the adult global population and is increasingly common among even young children in many countries (e.g. Finland, where the market for smart phones is nearly saturated). The basic operation of cellular phone networks demands widespread human exposure to radio-frequency radiation (RFR) with cellular phone base stations providing cellular coverage in most areas. As the data needs of the population increase from the major shift in the… 
Non-ionizing radiation as possible carcinogen.
The present review provides the latest research evidence based both on in vitro studies, in vivo studies, and possible gaps in knowledge which will help to form guidelines for its exposure limits to the public.

Based on the outcomes of both human and animal studies analyzed in this review, animal and human spermatozoa exposed to EMR emitted by mobile phones had reduced motility, structural anomalies, and increased oxidative stress due to overproduction of reactive oxygen species.
Assessment of the Background Radiation of Telecommunication Masts in Ebonyi State, Nigeria
In this study, the background radiation of ten selected mobile phone base stations was monitored to ascertain their radiological risk. The requirement to monitor them is because they are established
To connect or not to connect: Visitor preferences for Wi-Fi and cellular network service at a national park
Abstract Worldwide mobile devices have become ubiquitous including for visitors to parks and protected areas. Wireless communication technologies, such as Wi-Fi access and cellular network service,
1,800 MHz Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Irradiation Impairs Neurite Outgrowth With a Decrease in Rap1-GTP in Primary Mouse Hippocampal Neurons and Neuro2a Cells
Rap1 activity and related signaling pathways are involved in the disturbance of neurite outgrowth induced by 48-h 1,800 MHz RF-EMR exposure, and the associated role of the Rap1 signaling pathway is explored.
The moral hazard of Lax FCC land use oversight for advanced network infrastructure
Abstract This article discusses issues that arise when service providers place network equipment on publicly owned lands in the United States. Based on land use policy at the Federal Communications


Epidemiological Evidence for a Health Risk from Mobile Phone Base Stations
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.
Using GIS for Measuring Mobile Tower Radiation on Human
A GIS-based measuring approach that will help detect the areas of RF radiation exposure which will map out places where users are in danger of being exposed to health hazards of the radiations and help governments and health organizations to calculate radiation distribution area based on the location of mobile towers.
Biological effects from exposure to electromagnetic radiation emitted by cell tower base stations and other antenna arrays
The objective of this paper is to review the existing studies of people living or working near cellular infrastructure and other pertinent studies that could apply to long-term, low-level radiofrequency radiation (RFR) exposures.
Mobile phone base stations and adverse health effects: phase 2 of a cross-sectional study with measured radio frequency electromagnetic fields
Testing the hypothesis that exposure to continuous low-level radio frequency electromagnetic fields emitted from mobile phone base stations was related to various health disturbances found that it was not, in this large population-based study, associated with adverse health effects.
Mobile phone infrastructure regulation in Europe: Scientific challenges and human rights protection
Abstract As the progress of mobile phone technology accelerates throughout Europe, the regulatory framework necessary for its safe and extended use has been slow to develop. This article analyses the
[Investigation on the health of people living near mobile telephone relay stations: I/Incidence according to distance and sex].
This first study on symptoms experienced by people living in vicinity of base stations shows that, in view of radioprotection, minimal distance of people from cellular phone base stations should not be < 300 m.
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.
Neurobehavioral effects among inhabitants around mobile phone base stations.
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.
A cross-sectional case control study on genetic damage in individuals residing in the vicinity of a mobile phone base station
Daily mobile phone usage, location of residence and power density are revealed as significant predictors of genetic damage in peripheral blood leukocytes of individuals residing in the vicinity of a mobile phone base station.
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.
