Radiofrequency radiation (RFR), e.g. electromagnetic waves emitted by our cell phones and Wi-Fi, are referred to as non-ionizing. This means that in contrast to the ionizing radiation, which does induce ionization of water and biologically important macromolecules, RFR does not have a capacity for such effects. Unlike, for example X-rays, the energy of RFR is not enough to break electrons off the molecules. However, is RFR completely safe for public health? Traditionally, the... 

Monochromatic red light of LED protects embryonic cells from oxidative stress caused by radiofrequency radiation

Red light of LED can protect embryonic cells from oxidative stress caused by lowintensity RFR exposure, of particularly importance in terms of potential mutagenicity and carcinogenicity of low intensity RFR, which in turn depends on the oxidative potential of RFR.

Cellular Effects Following Exposure to Mobile Phone Radiation and its Compensation

The effect of non-thermal radiation on biological systems is still discussed controversial. In this present study we investigated the non-thermal effects of an actively transmitting 1800 MHz mobile

Lipid Peroxidation Processes in Loach Embryos under the Effect of Microwave Radiation

Various physical and chemical factors influence leads to disruption of pro-oxidant and antioxidant systems. Interaction between electromagnetic field and living cell and organism are complicated and

Effects of mobile phone emissions on human red blood cells

The observed changes in the Raman spectra of mobile signal exposed RBCs compared to unexposed control suggest reduced hemoglobin‐oxygen affinity for the exposed cells, which may involve activation of the voltage gated membrane Ca2+ channels by the mobile phone emissions.

Overproduction of free radical species in embryonal cells exposed to low intensity radiofrequency radiation.

Exposure of developing quail embryos to extremely low intensity RF-EMR of GSM 900 MHz during at least one hundred and fifty-eight hours leads to a significant overproduction of free radicals/reactive oxygen species and oxidative damage of DNA in embryo cells.

Effects of combined radiofrequency radiation exposure on levels of reactive oxygen species in neuronal cells

It is indicated that neither combined RF radiation alone nor combinedRF radiation with menadione or H2O2 influences the intracellular ROS level in neuronal cells such as U87, PC12 or SH-SY5Y.

Effects of 837 and 1950 MHz radiofrequency radiation exposure alone or combined on oxidative stress in MCF10A cells

Results indicate that single or multiple RF radiation exposure did not elicit oxidative stress in MCF10A cells under the authors' exposure conditions.

Long-term exposure to microwave radiation provokes cancer growth: evidences from radars and mobile communication systems.

Recent data strongly point to the need for re-elaboration of the current safety limits for non-ionizing radiation using recently obtained knowledge, and it is emphasized that the everyday exposure of both occupational and general public to MW radiation should be regulated based on a precautionary principles which imply maximum restriction of excessive exposure.
