A previous study (see publication 11424) failed to disclose an effect of short (15 min) exposure to low level energy microwaves (0.003 mW/cm²) emitted by a commercially available automobile radar system (77 GHz) for adaptive cruise control on cardiovascular function.
Exposure duration: 15 min
|Exposure duration||15 min|
|power density||59.7 µW/cm²||unspecified||unspecified||-||-|
While significant effects on the measured parameters were revealed depending on time ("calming" effect), no significant difference was found between exposure and sham exposure. The present investigation rules out physiologically relevant effects of moderate energy microwaves varying from 5.8 to 110 GHz on cardiovascular function.
