vruz: I understand why low power microwaves can’t cause damage to DNA strings. but people who focus on the very small scale physics of human physiology to dismiss possible harm are getting it wrong. there’s zillions of complex interactions on the molecular level in relation to several facets of electromagnetic radiation.
the most honest assesment of this potential problem is that we just don’t yet know. but here’s what we *do now know* at the very minimum: *something* is noticeably changed in human metabolism. I think that should be enough cause for concern and further investigation.
now you can dismiss the dismissive and narrow view commentary on this matter.
Context The dramatic increase in use of cellular telephones has generated concern about possible negative effects of radiofrequency signals delivered to the brain. However, whether acute cell phone exposure affects the human brain is unclear.
Objective To evaluate if acute cell phone exposure affects brain glucose metabolism, a marker of brain activity.
Conclusions: In healthy participants and compared with no exposure, 50-minute cell phone exposure was associated with increased brain glucose metabolism in the region closest to the antenna. This finding is of unknown clinical significance.
