Scientific studies on the biological effects of electromagnetic radiation

Incidence of glioblastoma brain tumor increased tenfold between 1985 and 2015 in the U.K.

The incidence of glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), the most virulent and deadly type of brain cancer, is going up in the U.K., while the incidence of other types of malignant brain tumors is declining, according to newly published data. Source of figures: Frank de Vocht, “Corrigendum,” Environment International, posted January 25, 2017 Alasdair Philips from PowerWatch: “The simple take-home message of the two plots is that the number of the most aggressive type of brain tumors [GBM] is going up and the other types of lower-grade malignant glioma are going down. If better diagnosis were responsible for the changes in GBM, [...]

EU Reflex study shows DNA damage caused by radiation from wireless devices and mobile phones

Introduction The European REFLEX study (2004) was conducted on behalf of the EU by 12 institutions for a total budget of 3 million euros. The results show that even at a SAR value of 1,3W / kg (representative of many mobile phones) significant biological damage is done in human cells and especially to the DNA. A very interesting result is that finally the non-thermal effects of 2G (GSM) radiation, 3G (UMTS) radiation and magnetic fields from electrical equipment and appliances were structurally looked into. The effect of the electromagnetic radiation of these sources appears to be directly comparable to the effect of [...]
