Introduction

There is a general concern on the possible hazardous health effects of exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation (RFR) emitted from wireless communication devices. The following is a brief summary of scientific research on the effects of RFR exposure on the nervous system. For readers who are not familiar with the jargon of biological experiments, I have underlined the main conclusions of the research described.
Unlike the conditions in most previous research on the biological effects of RFR in which whole body exposure was studied, the effects of cellular telephone-related exposure involve repeated exposure with variable durations of a relatively constant amount of body tissue (i.e., part of the head). In considering the biological effects of RFR, the intensity and frequency of the radiation and exposure duration are important determinants of the responses. For repeated exposure, as in the case of the use of cellular telephones, homeostatic compensatory response can occur. On the other hand, since a relatively constant amount of body tissue is exposed, cumulative effect could occur and lead to an eventual breakdown of homeostasis and adverse health consequences. Data from some of the experiments described below do suggest that RFR effects are cumulative over time...
