To identify the possible short-term effects of electromagnetic fields emitted by GSM 900 and GSM 1800 mobile phones on subjective and objective indicators of well-being by conducting a meta-analysis based on a large pool of studies.
Altogether, the current analysis is based on 1174 subjects.
The following 17 studies were included: Ahamed et al. 2008, Andrzejak et al. 2008, Atlasz et al. 2006, Bamiou et al. 2008, Cinel et al. 2008, Esen and Esen 2006, Hietanen et al. 2002, Hillert et al. 2008, Koivisto et al. 2001, Kwon et al. 2008, Nam et al. 2009, Oftedal et al. 2007, Parazzini et al. 2007, Rubin et al. 2006, Tahvanainen et al. 2004, Tamer et al. 2009, Wilen et al. 2006.
Exposure duration: 5-180 min
|Exposure duration||5-180 min|
No parameters are specified for this exposure.
The results did not show any significant impact of short-term radiofrequency electromagnetic field exposure on any parameter.
The authors conclude that there is no evidence for short-term effects of electromagnetic fields emitted by mobile phones on well-being parameters.
