ABSTRACT
Mobile telephones, sometimes called cellular (cell) phones or handies, are now an integral part of
modern life. The mobile phone handsets are low-powered radiofrequency transmitters, emitting maximum powers in
the range of 0.2 to 0.6 watts. Scientific concerns have increased sufficiently over the possible hazard to health from
using cell phones. The reported adverse health effects include physiological, behavioural and cognitive changes as
well as tumour formation and genetic damage. However findings are controversial and no consensus exists. Genotoxicity
has been observed either in lower organisms or in vitro studies. The aim of the present study hence was to detect any
cytogenetic damage in mobile phone users by analysing short term peripheral lymphocytes cultures for chromosomal
aberrations and the buccal mucosal cells for micronuclei (aneugenicity and clastogenicity). The results revealed
increased number of micronucleated buccal cells and cytological abnormalities in cultured lymphocytes indicating the
genotoxic response from mobile phone use.
