The aim of this paper is to overview the diverse biological effects of non-thermal microwaves (NT MWs) and complex dependence of these effects on various physical and biological parameters. Besides dependencies on frequency and modulation, the available data suggest dependencies of the NT MW effects on intermittence and coherence time of exposure, polarization, static magnetic filed, electromagnetic stray field, genotype, gender, physiological and individual factors, cell density during of…

Microwave energy has found wide range of applications in the fields of communications, industrial, scientific, medical, commercial and military. In the Public applications, microwave energy may
Biological indicators in response to radiofrequency/microwave exposure
TLDR
Current knowledge on possible biological mechanisms of RF/MW actions is presented and ROS concentration increase within the cell caused byRF/MW radiation seems to be a biologically relevant hypothesis to give clear insight into the RF/ MW action at non-thermal level of radiation.
Effect of Low Power Microwave Radiation on Microorganisms and other Life Forms
Microwaves are a part of electromagnetic spectrum with multiple applications. Thermal effects resulting from high-power microwave radiation are well established, but considerable controversy
The role of cell hydration in realization of biological effects of non-ionizing radiation (NIR)
TLDR
It is suggested that cell bathing medium is one of the primary targets and cell hydration is a biomarker for NIR effects on cells and organisms and on plants’ seeds germination, microbe growth and development, snail neurons and heart muscle, rat’s brain and heart tissues.
Effects of Millimeter Waves Radiation on Cell Membrane - A Brief Review
The millimeter waves (MMW) region of the electromagnetic spectrum, extending from 30 to 300 GHz in terms of frequency (corresponding to wavelengths from 10 mm to 1 mm), is officially used in
The Non Thermal Effect of Weak Intensity Millimeter Waves on Physicochemical Properties of Water and Water Solutions
TLDR
It is suggested that the MMW-induced vibration of water dipole molecules caused the non thermal changes of physicochemical properties of DW and PS, which promote the formation of H2O2 in water.
Cell bathing medium as a target for non thermal effect of millimeter waves
TLDR
It was shown that the 4 Hz-modulated low intensity 90–160 GHz MMW direct radiation and MMW-treated PS leads to on single neuron shrinkage, skin and brain tissue dehydration, which allows to recommend cell hydration as a cellular marker for estimation of the NT biological effect of MMW on cells and organisms.
Mechanism for Combined Action of Microwaves and Static Magnetic Field: Slow Non Uniform Rotation of Charged Nucleoid
TLDR
This model suggests that the combined action of MW and static magnetic field results in slow non uniform rotation of nucleoid with angular speed that depends on Larmor frequency, and predicts that non thermal effects of MW are dependent on carrier frequency and alsostatic magnetic field in the area of exposure.
Low-intensity microwave autohemotherapy as a feasible alternative drug-free technique
TLDR
The original approach to irradiation of blood for therapeutic purposes using a cylindrical cavity resonator operating at f = 41.6 GHz is offered and the improving outcomes in patients with chronic neurological disorders who received the course of microwave autohemotherapy are shown.

Biological and morphological effects on the reproductive organ of rats after exposure to electromagnetic field.
TLDR
The biological and morphological effects resulting from 900 MHz RF EMF exposure lends no support to suggestions of adverse effect on spermatogenesis, and on germinal epithelium, and testicular morphologic alterations may possibly be due to hormonal changes.
