Effect of mobile phone station on micronucleus frequency and chromosomal aberrations in human blood cells med./bio.

Published in: Genet Couns 2010; 21 (2): 243-251
Journal partially peer-reviewed/peer-review process unclear

Aim of study (acc. to author)

To evaluate the effects of mobile phone base stations on the micronucleus frequency and chromosomal aberrations in blood of people who were living around mobile phone base stations (n=14) and of controls who lived away from base stations (n=14).

Background/further details

The study group consisted of 14 volunteers who lived in the penthouse flat of 10 buildings with base station antennas on the roofs.

Main outcome of study (acc. to author)

The data did not show any significant difference in micronucleus frequency and chromosome aberrations between the two groups. The results indicate that cellular phones and their base stations do not produce important carcinogenic changes.
