Major Austrian insurer AUVA finds effects of cell phones on DNA, EEG and human proteins

Update August 2016: AUVA Athem 2 report: "DNA damage from cell phones proven" (Article Diagnose Funk)On behalf of the major Austrian insurance company AUVA with over 4.3 million policyholders, research was carried out into the health effects of electromagnetic fields from mobile phones at levels well below current exposure limits, which only protect against warming.In the studies on healthy volunteers, the effects of the fields of the GSM-900 and UMTS technology were measured in a double-blind study. The main results are as follows:Increasing changes in EEG in the alpha spectrum, from about 5-10 minutes after the start of...

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.The key point is that structural research has finally been carried out into the non-thermal effects of 2G (GSM) radiation, 3G (UMTS) radiation and magnetic fields from electrical installations and devices. The effect of the electromagnetic radiation from these sources turns out to be very similar...
