Een overzicht van enkele recent uitgekomen onderzoeken:


A mother's exposure to mobile phone
radiation may affect the reproductive
capacity of her son. Turkish scientists
exposed pregnant rats to a 900 MHz
mobile phone signal during 7 days of
pregnancy. They found that offspring had
altered sperm quality and death of large
numbers of cells in the seminiferous
tubule epithelium. (Odaci, E et al, Biotech
Histochem, 2016 Jan;91(1

Similarly, mobile phone use in pregnancy
may affect her child's heart. Scientists
exposed pregnant rats to a 900 MHz
mobile phone signal during pregnancy and
found that her offspring showed various
signs of heart damage. (Türedi S et al,
Electromagn Biol Med, 34(4):390-7, 2015.)

Children's brains
Children's brains do absorb more radiation
than adults' brains, say researchers from
the USA and Brazil. Their skulls are
smaller and thinner and have different
electrical properties to adults'. Higher
exposures could 'have more severe
implications in the young,' the authors
said. (Fernandez-Rodriguez, C et al, http://

Wireless radiation can have a harmful
effect on plants, say researchers from
Belgium and Sweden. They exposed two
groups of cress seeds to different levels of
wireless radiation. The seeds exposed to
the lowest levels of radiation (2-3 μW/m2)
grew normally. Those exposed to 70-100
—primarily from base stations—
failed to germinate. When the more highly
exposed seeds were moved to a lower
field, they began to germinate after two
days. The authors suggest that 'the
prodigious wireless technology may affect
and seriously impact nature'. (Cammaerts
MC and Johansson O, Phyton,
International Journal of Experimental
Botany, 84: 132-137, 2015.)

Brazilian researchers conducted a review of
studies concerned with electromagnetic
radiation and tinnitus. They concluded that
'there might be a common pathophysiology
between V electrosensitivity and tinnitus'
and advised precautionary use of mobile
phones to prevent the condition. (Medeiros,
LN and Sanchez, TG, Braz J
Otorhinolaryngol 82(1):97-104, 2016.)

Could radiofrequency radiation affect
reproduction in women? To answer this
question, researchers investigated exposure
levels and symptoms among a group of 349
female factory workers. They found that
menstrual disorders increased with the
intensity of exposure and were greater than
in unexposed controls. (Xu, Y et al, J Occup
Environ Med, 58(2):148-53, 2016.)


How much do university students use their
mobile phones after lights-out and how
does it affect their sleep? To answer these
questions, Iranian researchers surveyed
358 medical students. They found that
60% of them used their phones after lights
-out and this caused insomnia which may
have affected their learning and the quality
of the medical care they provided.
(Zarghami M, Iran J Psychiatry Behav

Adults' sleep
Similarly, adults' sleep is affected by their
mobile phone use, according to a study from
Flanders. The researchers examined the
sleep patterns and electronic media used of
844 adults, 60% of whom took their phones
into their bedrooms at night. They found that
texting or calling after lights-out was related
to more fatigue and later waking in adults in
their 40s and shorter sleep in people in their
60s. (Exelmans, L and Van den Bulck, J,
Soc Sci Med, 148:93-101, 2016.)

Mobile phone radiation affected immunity in
the blood of healthy volunteers. In blood
samples exposed to the radiation from a
smartphone for 30 minutes, neutrophils
(white blood cells involved in immunity) were
activated. (Lippi, G et al, Clin Chem Lab
Med, Feb 12, 2016.)

Blood-brain barrier
Mobile phone radiation could increase the
permeability of the blood-brain-barrier (BBB)
whose role is to prevent harmful substances
from entering the brain. Turkish researchers
exposed male and female rats to mobile
phone radiation of 900 and 1800 MHz. They
found that 1800 MHz increased permeability
of the BBB in males and 900 MHz increased
permeability in females. Effects occurred at
low (nonthermal) levels of exposure. (Sırav
B and Seyhan N, J Chem Neuroanat, Dec
23, 2015.)

Mobile phone radiation may cause damage
to the spinal cord, according to research
from Turkey. Researchers exposed young
rats to mobile phone radiation of 900 MHz
for one hour for 25 days. At the end of that
time, the rats were found to have
'pathological' changes, including loss of
myelin sheath. (Ikinci A et al, J Chem
Neuroanat, Dec 17, 2015.)



Other studies showing effects from
RF radiation
• A slight increase in gliomas was found
in people using a mobile phone on the
same side of the head as their tumour.
(Yoon, S et al, Environ Health Toxicol,
Dec 21, 2015.)

• Mobile phone radiation of 1.8 GHz
affected acetylcholinesterase which is
involved in learning, memory and
neurodegenerative diseases.
(Valbonesi, P et al, Int J Radiat Biol, 92
(1):1-10, 2016.)

• Mobile phone radiation caused
inflammatory responses in saliva of the
human parotid gland. (Siqueira EC et
al, J Oral Pathol Med, Feb 14, 2016.)
