2011 The Parliamentary Assembly Council of Europe 
Resolution  on the Potential Dangers of Electromagnetic Fields and their effect on the Environment “telecommunications and mobile telephony appear to have more or less potentially harmful, non-thermal, biological effects on plants, insects and animals as well as the human body, even when exposed to levels that are below the official threshold values.” 

Dr Devra Davis, an international expert and cancer researcher discusses the State of Science in 2011.

PROTECTION AGAINST RADIATION IS IN CONFLICT WITH SCIENCE


Dr. Franz Adlkofer discusses the difficulties he faced when presenting his research on the genotoxic and carcinogenic effects of electromagnetic fields due to institutional corruption and Industry involvement.
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.

Scientific Studies





The Bioinititive 2012 Report;

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.


Mobile Phone Infrastructure Regulation in Europe: Scientific Challenges and Human Rights Protection
This  article was published in Environmental Science & Policy and argues that this issue is a human rights issue for children.  It is a critical document to have, read, and understand.


Use of mobile phones and cordless phones is associated with increased risk for glioma and acoustic neuroma: The Swedish study by Lennart Hardell showing increased risk of glioma and acustic neuroma brain cancer after 10 years of mobile and cordless phone use.  A more recent Study using another data set was published in the International Journal of Oncology in 2013 and it states" These findings provide support for the hypothesis that RF-EMFs play a role both in the initiation and promotion stages of carcinogenesis."


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."



Fetal Radiofrequency Radiation Exposure From 800-1900 Mhz-Rated Cellular Telephones Affects Neurodevelopment and  Behavior in Mice.

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.


Prenatal and Postnatal Cell Phone Exposures and Headaches in Children.

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.

Electromagnetic fields act via activation of voltage-gated calcium channels to produce beneficial or adverse effects.  This review explains a mechanism for non-thermal biological effects from EMFs whereby voltage-gated calcium channels are opened up in the cell membrane, allowing calcium to leak into the cells.

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.
