Study type: Medical/biological study (experimental study)

Reducing the in-vitro electromagnetic field effect of cellular phones on human DNA and the intensity of their emitted radiation. med./bio.

Published in: Acupunct Electrother Res 2007; 32 (1-2): 1-14

Aim of study (acc. to author)

To study the effects of mobile phone irradiation on DNA conformation in vitro and to measure the intensity of irradiation emitted by cell phones.

Background/further details

Some experiments were performed with a commercially available shielding disk (Aulterra Neutralizer) placed inside (or outside) the phone.

Main outcome of study (acc. to author)

The data showed that DNA does interact with mobile phone emission (exposure speeds up DNA rewinding by 40%). The in vitro effect was reversed by 95% when a commercially available shielding desk was attached to the cellular phone. The shielding device also reduced the intensity of cell phone irradiation.
