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 in tertiles (0.02 – 0.04 / 0.05 – 0.22 / 0.25 – 1.29 V/m). Spectrum analysis revealed the main contribution and variation for the Efield from the GSM base station. The adjusted (sex, age, distance) logistic regression model showed statistically significant positive exposure-response associations…

Exposure to non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation from mobile telephony and the association with psychiatric symptoms.

Exposure to electromagnetic radiation from mobile phone base stations and other electronic devices was associated with psychiatric symptoms, independently of gender, schooling, and smoking status.

HEALTH COMPLAINTS BY INDIVIDUALS RESIDING IN THE PROXIMITY TO MOBILE PHONE BASE STATIONS AS A FUNCTION OF POWER DENSITY

Health complaints of those residing near two base stations for four to ten years and in those with no stations were correlated with the emitting radiations, and mobile phone usage, SAR value and power density were predictors of health complaints.

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.

The Microwave Syndrome: A Preliminary Study in Spain

A health survey was carried out in Murcia, Spain, in the vicinity of a Cellular Phone Base Station working in DCS‐1800 MHz. This survey contained health items related to “microwave sickness” or “RF

MOBILE TELEPHONE BASE-STATIONS: EFFECTS ON HEALTH AND WELLBEING

A significant relation to measured power-density was found for cardiovascular symptoms and perceptual speed and effects on wellbeing and performance of very low levels of exposure to emissions from base-stations cannot be ruled out and should further be studied.

Cellular and cordless telephones and the risk for brain tumours

Use of analogue cellular telephones gave an increased risk for brain tumours and exposure to microwaves and the risk was increased for tumours located in the temporal area on the same side of the brain that was used during phone calls; for analogue cellulartelephones the OR was 2.5 (95% CI 1.3–4.9).

Radiofrequency (RF) sickness in the Lilienfeld Study: an effect of modulated microwaves?

A review of statistically significant health effects provided evidence that the disregarded health conditions match the cluster attributed to the radiofrequency sickness syndrome, thus establishing a possible correlation between health effects and chronic exposure to low-intensity, modulated microwave radiation.

Epidemiologic evidence relevant to radar (microwave) effects.

The findings suggest that RF exposures are potentially carcinogenic and have other health effects, and prudent avoidance of unneeded exposures is recommended as a precautionary measure.

Radiofrequency radiation-induced calcium ion efflux enhancement from human and other neuroblastoma cells in culture.

It is confirmed that amplitude-modulated radiofrequency radiation can induce responses in cells of nervous tissue origin from widely different animal species, including humans and is consistent with the reports of similar findings in avian and feline brain tissues.

No significant difference was observed between the effects of the two forms of radiation, and it is speculated that these effects could result from a direct effect of radiofrequency electromagnetic energy on DNA molecules and/or impairment of DNA-damage repair mechanisms in brain cells.

Cell biology: Non-thermal heat-shock response to microwaves

It is shown that prolonged exposure to low-intensity microwave fields can induce heat-shock responses in the soil nematode Caenorhabditis elegans, suggesting that current exposure limits set for microwave equipment may need to be reconsidered.

This first study on symptoms experienced by people living in the vicinity of base stations shows that, in view of radioprotection, the of minimal distance of people from cellular phone base stations should not be < 300 m.
