Dr Devra Davis, an international expert and cancer researcher discusses the State of Science in 2011.
There are literally thousands of research studies on the impacts of EMF/ RFR. We hope you will find this sampling valuable as you start the journey of understanding this issue.
A Comprehensive Overview of the Science by experts in the field. It is broken down into Chapters on various health effects. Notably, it also has the abstracts of the research (All research since 2007 with a SEARCH feature).
It also has color charts so that you can see the levels of radiation and compare this to the effects shown in research studies.
This Review from international experts argues RF should be classified at least as a probable human carcinogen, Group 2A, according to the classification system at the WHO IARC. The authors state, "No other environmental carcinogen has produced evidence of an increased risk in just one decade. Empirical data have shown a difference in the dielectric properties of tissues as a function of age, mostly due to the higher water content in children's tissues." and "We note that brain cancer is the proverbial “tip of the iceberg”; the rest of the body is also showing effects other than cancers."
Top Yale Doctors found impaired memory, increased hyperactivity and changed brains in mice exposed to this radiation in utero. If you want to see one of the doctors, Dr. Hugh Taylor, discussing his research in a quick video go HERE.
Children with cell phone exposure had higher odds of migraines and headache-related symptoms than children with no exposure.
Human disease resulting from exposure to electromagnetic fields
This review summarizes the evidence stating that excessive exposure to magnetic fields from power lines and other sources of electric current increases the risk of development of some cancers and neurodegenerative diseases, and that excessive exposure to RF radiation increases risk of cancer, male infertility, and neurobehavioral abnormalities.
Low intensity radiofrequency radiation: a new oxidant for living cells The group reported that of 80 studies, they had assessed, 92,5 % (= 76 studies) confirmed that mechanism of inflicting damage. "Unexpectedly, a strong non-thermal character of biological effects" had been documented" and "RFR exposure could cause a broad spectrum of health disorders and diseases, including cancer in humans. Undoubtedly, this calls for the further intensive research in the area, as well as to a precautionary approach in routine usage of wireless devices."
A review of the ecological effects of radiofrequency electromagnetic fields
A 2013 systematic review of published scientific studies.In about two thirds of the reviewed studies ecological effects of RF-EMF was reported at high as well as at low dosages.
