Abstract:

Concerns about the health effects of radiofrequency
(RF) waves have been raised because of the gradual
increase in usage of cell phones, and there are scientific
questions and debates about the safety of those instruments
in daily life. The aim of this study is to evaluate the
genotoxic effects of RF waves in an experimental brain cell
culture model. Brain cell cultures of the mice were exposed
to 10.715 GHz with specific absorbtion rate (SAR)
0.725 W/kG signals for 6 h in 3 days at 25-C to check for
the changes in the micronucleus (MNi) assay and in the
expression of 11 proapoptotic and antiapoptotic genes. It
was found that MNi rate increased 11-fold and STAT3
expression decreased 7-fold in the cell cultures which were
exposed to RF. Cell phones which spread RF may damage
DNA and change gene expression in brain cells.
