“Nonthermal MWs from GSM mobile telephones at lower levels than the ICNIRP safety standards affect 53BP1 and gamma-H2AX foci and chromatin conformation in human lymphocytes. These effects suggest induction of stress response and/or DNA damage. For the first time, we report that mobile telephone MWs affect 53BP1 and gamma-H2AX foci dependent on carrier frequency. We also show that heat shock induces similar responses. The same responses were observed in lymphocytes from healthy subjects and from subjects reporting hypersensitivity to EMFs.”

“This result obtained in lymphocytes from both healthy and hypersensitive persons is of great importance. Such frequency dependence suggests a mechanism that does not deal with thermal heating. Investigation of this mechanism and the molecular targets of the frequency-dependent effects of MWs in the frequency range of mobile communication is a fundamental problem.”
