Various responses to non-thermal microwaves (MW) from mobile communication including adverse health effects related to electrohypersensitivity, cancer risks, neurological effects, and reproductive

Preventive measures to reduce harmful effects produced by electromagnetic radiation on health

Man-made electromagnetic waves are the most widely and rapidly expanding exposure in today's world, including exposure in several frequency groups: extremely low frequencies (ELF) from electricity

Biological effects of low-intensity radiofrequency fields and risk assessment for biota

Despite the fact that there are still conflicting opinions about the damage caused by modern wireless communication technologies, most scientists report on the negative biological effects of

Risks to Health and Well-Being From Radio-Frequency Radiation Emitted by Cell Phones and Other Wireless Devices

Current knowledge provides justification for governments, public health authorities, and physicians/allied health professionals to warn the population that having a cell phone next to the body is harmful, and to support measures to reduce all exposures to RFR.

Assessment of function, histopathological changes, and oxidative stress in liver tissue due to ionizing and non-ionizing radiations

A short term pre-exposure to RF-EMF before exposure to an 8 Gy challenging dose of x-rays caused the alterations in oxidative stress markers and liver function tests, which indicate that oxidative stress is possibly involved in the adaptive response.

Pre-Exposure to Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Fields and Induction of Radioadaptive Response in Rats Irradiated with High Doses of X-Rays

The findings confirm that in a similar pattern with the adaptive responses induced by pre-exposure to ionizing radiation, the induction of adaptive response by RF-pre-exposures requires a minimum level of damage to trigger adaptive phenomena.

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.

Appeals that matter or not on a moratorium on the deployment of the fifth generation, 5G, for microwave radiation

Warning on the health risks associated with RF presented in the 5G appeal and the letters to the EU Health Commissioner since September, 2017 and the authors' rebuttals are summarized are summarized.

Exposure to 1.8 GHz radiofrequency field modulates ROS in human HEK293 cells as a function of signal amplitude

It is shown that exposure to a 1.8 GHz carrier frequency in the amplitude range of household telecommunications induces the formation of ROS (Reactive Oxygen Species) in human HEK293 cultured cells, and modulation of intracellular ROS can be a direct consequence of RF exposure dependent on signal frequency and amplitude.



World Health Organization, radiofrequency radiation and health - a hard nut to crack (Review)

Evaluation of non-thermal biological effects from RF radiation are dismissed as scientific evidence of adverse health effects in the Monograph, and evaluation of ICNIRP members have a serious conflict of interest.

Dependence of non-thermal biological effects of microwaves on physical and biological variables: implications for reproducibility and safety standards

Diverse biological responses, including adverse health effects, to non-thermal (NT) microwaves (MW) have been described by many research groups all over the world. The aim of this paper is to provide

The microwave syndrome or electro-hypersensitivity: historical background

There is increasing evidence that the “microwave syndrome” or “electro-hypersensitivity” (EHS) is a real disease that is caused by exposure to EMFs, especially those in the microwave range.

The Sensitivity of Children to Electromagnetic Fields

In today's world, technologic developments bring social and economic benefits to large sections of society; however, the health consequences of these developments can be difficult to predict and

Tumor promotion by exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields below exposure limits for humans.

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.

Exposure of human peripheral blood lymphocytes to electromagnetic fields associated with cellular phones leads to chromosomal instability

Results indicate that the genotoxic effect of the electromagnetic radiation is elicited via a non‐thermal pathway, and the fact that aneuploidy is a phenomenon known to increase the risk for cancer, should be taken into consideration in future evaluation of exposure guidelines.

Adaptive response in human blood lymphocytes exposed to non-ionizing radiofrequency fields: resistance to ionizing radiation-induced damage

There was a significant decrease in the number of micronuclei in lymphocytes exposed to RF + XR (AD + CD) as compared with those subjected to XR alone (CD), which suggested a RF-induced AR and induction of resistance to subsequent damage from XR.
