The problem of health effects of electromagnetic fields (EMF) emitted by cellular
phone base stations evokes much interest in view of the fact that people living in their
vicinity are fated to continuous exposure to EMF. None of the studies carried out
throughout the world have revealed excessive values of standards adopted by the
International Commission on NonIonizing
Radiation Protection (ICNIRP). A
questionnaire was used as a study tool. The results of the questionnaire survey reveal
that people living in the vicinity of base stations report various complaints mostly of
the circulatory system, but also of sleep disturbances, irritability, depression, blurred
vision, concentration difficulties, nausea, lack of appetite, headache and vertigo. The
performed studies showed the relationship between the incidence of individual
symptoms, the level of exposure, and the distance between a residential area and a
base station. This association was observed in both groups of persons, those who
linked their complaints with the presence of the base station and those who did not
notice such a relation. Further studies, clinical and those based on questionnaires, are
needed to explain the background of reported complaints.
