to review and evaluate the recent literature on the health effects of exposure to mobile phone base station (MPBS) radiation. we performed a systematic review of randomized human trials conducted. The possible effects of radiofrequency (RF) exposure on the genetic material of cells are considered very important since damage to the DNA of somatic cells can be linked to cancer development or cell death whereas damage to germ cells can lead to genetic damage in next and subsequent generations. A recent research review on the health risks of RFR, involving independent verification based on 5, studies in the MedLine database, concludes that “the literature shows there is much valid reason for concern aboutpotential adverse health effects from both 4G and 5G technology” and that extant research “should be viewed as extremely conservative, substantially underestimating the adverse impacts of . “General health effects reviews have found that high levels of exposure to radio frequencies may result in burns [and] the link between exposure to radio frequencies and cancer, reproductive diseases, and neurological effects has not been thoroughly explored.” Health Effects According to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

Biological effects that result from heating of tissue by RF energy are often referred to as "thermal" effects. It has been known for many years that exposure to very high levels of RF radiation can be harmful due to the ability of RF energy to rapidly heat biological tissue. This is the principle by which microwave ovens cook food.   Cardiovascular Effects of Radio frequency Radiation Radio frequency radiation (RFR) from wireless devices passes through the body and can affect many organs. A mechanism of injury has been documented in the basic science literature to be related to calcium channels and the creation of reactive oxygen species, or free radicals, which damage DNA. Food & Drug Administration. Review of Published Literature between and of Relevance to Radiofrequency Radiation and Cancer. Accessed at on Ma International Agency for Research on Cancer. IARC Monographs on the Evaluation of Carcinogenic Risks to Humans. Volume , part 2: .

There are hundreds of peer reviewed scientific studies that link RF Radiation to things like cancer, crib death, DNA Damage (especially in infants and fetuses), and male infertility. If you are interested in facts given to you in an understandable and interesting way, this book is .   Thermal Effects of Microwave and Radiofrequency Radiation. Kenneth R. Foster. Department of Bioengineering, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA, USA This chapter focuses on thermal effects of radiofrequency (RF) energy in three sections: thermal effects that are potentially related to hazards, mechanisms for thermal effects in.   Scientific literature was screened for articles on ecological effects of RF-EMF. RF-EMF had a significant effect on birds, insects, other vertebrates, other organisms and plants in 70% of the studies. Development and reproduction of birds and insects are the most strongly affected endpoints. There is a lack of field - and ecological studies on populations and the interaction of species. There is . Although this book is primarily clinically oriented, it also focuses on those biophysical, biochemical, and fundamental molecular studies and findings that provide the basis for understanding the presence or absence of pathophysiological manifestations of exposure to radiofrequency.
