10 healthy young men were examined before, during and after the following three conditions: 1.) 2 x 60 min of sham exposure, 2.) continuous, 60 min exposure and 60 min sham exposure, 3.) intermittent exposure.
|Exposure duration||continuous for 60 min|
The mean tympanic temperature in the whole group during continuous exposure was significantly higher (0.02°C) than during sham exposure. During intermittent exposure the temperature was lower than during sham exposure (difference was up to 0.11°C). Within an hour after continuous exposure, tympanic temperature was higher by 0.03°C and after intermittent exposure it was lower by 0.18°C in comparison with sham exposure. Two hours after exposure, the tympanic temperature was lower than after sham exposure (0.06°C and 0.26°C, respectively).
In conclusion, the data indicate that the physiological response to electromagnetic field exposure from the mobile phone was related to type of exposure (continuous or intermittent).
