Effect of GSM 900-MHz Mobile Phone Radiation on the Reproductive Capacity of Drosophila melanogaster

Jueves 3 de agosto de 2006 · 1622 lecturas



ABSTRACT
Pulsed radio frequency, (RF), electromagnetic radiation from common GSM
mobile phones, (Global System for Mobile Telecommunications) with a carrier
frequency at 900 MHz, modulated’’ by human voice, (speaking emission)
decreases the reproductive capacity of the insect Drosophila melanogaster by
50%-60%, whereas the corresponding nonmodulated’’ field (nonspeaking
emission) decreases the reproductive capacity by 15%-20%. The insects were
exposed to the near field of the mobile phone antenna for 6 min per day during
the first 2-5 days of their adult lives. The GSM field is found to affect both
females and males. Our results suggest that this field-radiation decreases the rate
of cellular processes during gonad development in insects.
Key Words: RF; GSM radiation; Electromagnetic fields; Biological effects;
Drosophila; Reproductive capacity.
