Single-strand DNA breaks in human hair root cells exposed to mobile phone radiation.
Abstract Purpose: To analyze the short term effects of radiofrequency radiation (RFR) exposure on genomic deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) of human hair root cells. Subjects and methods: Hair samples were collected from 8 healthy human subjects immediately before and after using a 900-MHz GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications) mobile phone for 15 and 30 minutes. Single-strand DNA breaks of hair root cells from the samples were determined using the 'comet assay'. Results: The data showed that talking on a mobile phone for 15 or 30 minutes significantly increased (p< .05) single-strand DNA breaks in cells of hair roots close to the phone. Comparing the 15-min and 30-min data using the paired t-test also showed that significantly more damages resulted after 30 minutes than after 15 minutes of phone use. Conclusions: A short-term exposure (15 and 30 minutes) to RFR (900-MHz) from a mobile phone caused a significant increase in DNA single-strand breaks in human hair root cells located around the ear which is used for the phone calls.

These controversial devices are already being installed across the UK, without the
public being informed of the possible threat to health, security and our environment.
The Government plan to replace all our utility meters with wireless Smart meters by 2020, in preparation for the ‘Smart Grid’. The aim is to smooth out the peaks and troughs of energy demand (a major problem for the utilities) by introducing a flexible tariff whereby the consumer pays more at peak times when they need it most, and less when the demand falls. These wireless meters have not been tested for health effects and are being rolled out amid dubious claims by government that they will cut consumer bills and help tackle climate change. This system is currently expected to cost British tax payers 11.3 billion pounds, the National Audit Office stating that the financial and environmental benefits are not justified by the expenditure involved. No current estimates for covering the cost of treating an increase in related health problems is readily available.
In a landmark statement adopted January 19, 2012, the American Academy of Environmental Medicine adopted a resolution calling for a halt to further implementation of the new wireless utility meters (smart meters).
What are the potential health issues associated with cellular telephone use?
What does exposure to cellular phones consist of and what does it mean to human health?
Plans to force households to have energy smart meters installed have been shelved over health and privacy fears.
