Key MethodA 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 syndrome. The microwave power density was measured at the respondents' homes. Statistical analysis showed significant correlation between the declared severity of the symptoms and the measured power density. The separation of respondents into two different exposure groups also showed an increase of…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

Radiofrequency (RF) sickness in the Lilienfeld Study: an effect of modulated microwaves?
TLDR
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. Expand
Radiofrequency (RF) Sickness in the Lilienfeld Study: An Effect of Modulated Microwaves?
TLDR
A review of statistically significant health effects noted in the Lilienfeld Study 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.

Effects upon health of occupational exposure to microwave radiation (radar).
TLDR
Functional and behavioral changes and ill-defined conditions, such as have been reported as microwave effects, could not be investigated in this study but subgroups of the living study population can be identified for expanded follow-up. Expand
Epidemiologic evidence relevant to radar (microwave) effects.
TLDR
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. Expand
[Investigation on the health of people living near mobile telephone relay stations: I/Incidence according to distance and sex].
TLDR
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. Expand
Cancer incidence near radio and television transmitters in Great Britain. I. Sutton Coldfield transmitter.
TLDR
These findings appeared to be consistent over the periods 1974-1980, 1981-1986, and were probably largely independent of the initially reported cluster, which appeared to concern mainly a later period. Expand

Leukemia, brain tumors, and exposure to extremely low frequency electromagnetic fields in Swiss railway employees.
TLDR
This study contributes to the evidence for a link between heavy exposure to extremely low frequency magnetic fields and leukemia, and reliable measurements and reliable historical reconstruction of exposures. Expand
Low-level microwave irradiation and central cholinergic systems
TLDR
The effects of microwave exposure on learning in the radial-arm maze and the effects of acute microwave irradiation on central choline uptake could be blocked by pretreating the animals before exposure with the narcotic antagonist naltrexone. Expand

TLDR
Helix aspersa neurons were irradiated with continuous-wave and noise-amplitude-modulated microwaves in a specially designed waveguide exposure system and showed that exposure of snail neurons to CW microwaves inhibited spontaneous activity and reduced input resistance at 8 degrees and 21 degrees C but not at 28 degrees C.
