Exposure to low frequency and radiofrequency electromagnetic fields at low intensities poses a significant health hazard that has not been adequately addressed by national and international organizations such as the World Health Organization. There is strong evidence that excessive exposure to mobile phone-frequencies over long periods of time increases the risk of brain cancer both in humans and animals. The mechanism(s) responsible include induction of reactive oxygen species, gene expression… Expand

Risks to Health and Well-Being From Radio-Frequency Radiation Emitted by Cell Phones and Other Wireless Devices
TLDR
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. Expand
Assessment of function, histopathological changes, and oxidative stress in liver tissue due to ionizing and non-ionizing radiations
TLDR
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. Expand
Pre-Exposure to Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Fields and Induction of Radioadaptive Response in Rats Irradiated with High Doses of X-Rays
TLDR
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. Expand
Non-ionizing radiation as possible carcinogen.
TLDR
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. Expand
Appeals that matter or not on a moratorium on the deployment of the fifth generation, 5G, for microwave radiation
TLDR
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. Expand
Shielding methods and products against man-made Electromagnetic Fields: Protection versus risk.
TLDR
The physical principles of EMF-shielding, the importance of natural atmospheric EMFs, and available shielding methods and suggested products are analyzed, relying on science-based evidence, and it is suggested that an avoidance strategy is safer than shielding, and specific protection tips are provided. Expand
Extremely low frequency electromagnetic fields and cancer: How source of funding affects results.
TLDR
There is strong evidence that excessive exposure to magnetic fields increases risk of adult leukemia, male and female breast cancer and brain cancer, and less convincing but suggestive evidence for elevations in several other cancer types. Expand
Long-term exposure to a 40-GHz electromagnetic field does not affect genotoxicity or heat shock protein expression in HCE-T or SRA01/04 cells
TLDR
Results indicate that exposure to 40 GHz millimeter waves under these conditions has little or no effect on MN formation, DNA strand breaks, or Hsp expression in HCE-T or SRA01/04 cells. Expand

TLDR
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. Expand
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 provideExpand
Radiofrequency electromagnetic field exposure and non-specific symptoms of ill health: a systematic review.
TLDR
The large majority of individuals who claims to be able to detect low level RF-EMF are not able to do so under double-blind conditions, and the available observational studies do not allow differentiating between biophysical from EMF and nocebo effects. Expand
The microwave syndrome or electro-hypersensitivity: historical background
TLDR
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. Expand
Tumor promotion by exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields below exposure limits for humans.
TLDR
Since many of the tumor-promoting effects in this study were seen at low to moderate exposure levels, thus well below exposure limits for the users of mobile phones, further studies are warranted to investigate the underlying mechanisms. Expand

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 andExpand
Overproduction of free radical species in embryonal cells exposed to low intensity radiofrequency radiation.
TLDR
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. Expand
Low intensity microwave radiation induced oxidative stress, inflammatory response and DNA damage in rat brain.
TLDR
It is suggested thatLow intensity microwave radiation induces oxidative stress, inflammatory response and DNA damage in brain by exerting a frequency dependent effect and increased oxidative stress and inflammatory response might be the factors involved in DNA damage following low intensity microwave exposure.

Adaptive response in human blood lymphocytes exposed to non-ionizing radiofrequency fields: resistance to ionizing radiation-induced damage
TLDR
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. Expand
Detection of Low Level Microwave Radiation Induced Deoxyribonucleic Acid Damage Vis-à-vis Genotoxicity in Brain of Fischer Rats
TLDR
Low SAR microwave radiation exposure at these frequencies may induce DNA strand breaks in brain tissue, and DNA damaging effects of low level microwave radiation in brain are demonstrated. Expand
