A research group led by Igor Yakymenko at the Kiev Institute of Experimental Pathology, Oncology and Radiobiology has collected and analyzed 80 studies on oxidative stress just by microwave radiation. As a result, it is seen by scientists as proof that mobile phone radiation causes harmful oxidation processes in cells. This happens due to the overproduction of free radicals by radiation exposure.
In the journal “Oxidants and Antioxidants in Medical Science” of March 29th 2014 in the editorial “microwave radiation of low intensity: a new oxidant for living cells” demonstrated that of 80 studies 92.5% (= 76 studies) showed damage caused by oxidative stress, which in turn is caused by cell phone radiation. These effects happen in the non-thermal range, ie at intensities far below the permitted limits.
This low-intensity radiation can lead to mutagenic effects of significant oxidative damage to DNA and cause a wide range of health problems and diseases, including cancer. Last but not least it can also cause faster ageing.
Oxidative stress is considered a major cause of exhaustion, headaches, inflammatory diseases, and heart attacks. It is suspected that neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, and autoimmune diseases such as MS show a relationship with oxidative stress and the destructive effects of free radicals on living cells.
The permitted limits are still based on physical calculations and the thermal effect of radiation. That means, it is believed, damage can only be caused if overheating of the tissue occurs (eg, skin). This has been repeatedly refuted, not just by Yakymenko et al.
Once again it becomes clear that the lawful limits are too high to protect us.
What we can do is to strengthen ourselves (see our blog on December 6th and 13th 2014) and our surroundings and minimize EM radiation exposure. For tips how to do this please read our Info Centre page: Electrosmog.
Installing our BioHome would be the most holistic option for the situation.
