Research data in relation to radiation exposure

There is an ever expanding amount of research clearly linking health issues with the exposure to radiation at far lower levels than maximum exposure limits set by many governments. Of course there is also research that shows there is no effect, but it is interesting to note that most research is funded by the industries that produce this radiation and those studies tend to find less issues than research that was not funded by industry. Please select the category below to find a collection of studies you will find interesting reading. A good source of research on this subject is the Bioinitiative Report.

Breast cancer and melatonin: Magnetic fields block melatonin’s oncostatic (anti-cancer) action

By Liburdy RP, Sloma TR, Sokolic R, Yaswen P Department of Cell and Molecular Biology, Life Science Division, Lawrence Berkley Laboratory, US Berkley, CA 9472 “These results provide the first evidence that ELF frequency magnetic fields can act at the cellular levels to enhance breast cancer cell proliferation by blocking melatonin’s natural oncostatic action. In addition, there appears to be a dose threshold between 2 and 12 mG.” View at PubMed: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8320637

Breast cancer / Tamoxifen block

Environmental magnetic fields inhibit the antiproliferative action of tamoxifen and melatonin in a human breast cancer cell line

By Harland JD, Liburdy RP Life Science Division, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, University of California at Berkeley 94720, USA. “We have previously reported that environmental-level magnetic fields (1.2 microT [12 milligauss], 60 Hz) block the growth inhibition of the hormone melatonin (10(-9) M) on MCF-7 human breast cancer cells in vitro. We now report that the same 1.2 microT, 60 Hz magnetic fields significantly block the growth inhibitory action of pharmacological levels of tamoxifen (10(-7) M).” View at PubMed: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9383244

Cancer growth provokation

Long-term exposure to microwave radiation provokes cancer growth: evidences from radars and mobile communication systems.

Yakymenko I1, Sidorik E, Kyrylenko S, Chekhun V.
The carcinogenic effect of MW irradiation is typically manifested after long term (up to 10 years and more) exposure. Nevertheless, even a year of operation of a powerful base transmitting station for mobile communication reportedly resulted in a dramatic increase of cancer incidence among population living nearby. In addition, model studies in rodents unveiled a significant increase in carcinogenesis after 17-24 months of MW exposure both in tumor-prone and intact animals.

Living near overhead high voltage transmission power lines as a risk factor for childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia: a case-control study.

Sohrabi et al, 2010. ‘The case group were living significantly closer to power lines (P<0.001). More than half of the cases were exposed to two or three types of power lines (P<0.02). Using logistic regression, odds ratio of 2.61 (95%CI: 1.73 to 3.94) calculated for less than 600 meters far from the nearest lines against more than 600 meters. This ratio estimated as 9.93 (95%CI: 3.47 to 28.5) for 123 KV, 10.78 (95%CI: 3.75 to 31) for 230 KV and 2.98 (95%CI: 0.93 to 9.54) for 400 KV lines. Odds of ALL decreased 0.61 for every 600 meters from the nearest power line. This study emphasizes that living close to high voltage power lines is a risk for ALL.’

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Gehrig’s diseaseOccupational exposure for magnetic fields and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis

For this case–cohort analysis within the prospective Netherlands Cohort Study, 58 279 men and 62 573 women aged 55–69 years at enrolment in 1986 were followed up for 17.3 years on ALS mortality. Information on occupational history and potential confounders were collected at baseline through a self-administered questionnaire and entered for a random subcohort (2092 men and 2074 women) and ALS deaths (76 men and 60 women). Occupational exposure to solvents, pesticides, metals, extremely low frequency magnetic fields (ELF-MFs) and electrical shocks was estimated by means of job exposure matrices (JEMs).

Occupational exposure to ELF-MF showed a possible association with ALS mortality among men: HR for ever holding a job with high exposure versus background 2.19 (95% (CI): 1.02 to 4.73) and HR for the highest tertile of cumulative exposure versus background 1.93 (95% CI 1.05 to 3.55).

These results strengthen the evidence suggesting a positive association between ELF-MF exposure and ALS.

Asthma, in offspring

Maternal exposure to magnetic fields during pregnancy in relation to the risk of asthma in offspring

NLi, DK, Chen H, Odouli R – Division of Research, Kaiser Permanente, Canada
Asthma was clinically diagnosed among 626 children who were followed up for as long as 13 years. All participants carried a meter to measure their MF levels during pregnancy.
RESULTS: …an increased risk of asthma in offspring: every 1-mG increase of maternal MF level during pregnancy was associated with a 15% increased rate of asthma in offspring. …compared with the children whose mothers had a low MF level (median 24-hour MF level, ≤0.3 mG) during pregnancy, children whose mothers had a high MF level (>2.0 mG) had more than a 3.5-fold increased rate of asthma … while children whose mothers had a medium MF level (>0.3-2.0 mG) had a 74% increased rate of asthma.
CONCLUSION: Our findings provide new epidemiological evidence that high maternal MF levels in pregnancy may increase the risk of asthma in offspring.

Hormone, Insulin secretion reductionAn extremely low frequency magnetic field attenuates insulin secretion from the insulinoma cell line
Sakurai T, Satake A, Sumi S, Inoue K, Miyakoshi J
Scientific collaborator in the Laboratory of Cellular Biotechnology (LBTC),
“In this study, we investigated the effects of exposure to an extremely low frequency magnetic field (ELFMF) on hormone secretion from an islet derived insulinoma cell line, RIN-m.” “These results suggest that exposure to ELFMF attenuates insulin secretion from RIN-m cells by affecting calcium influx through calcium channels.”

IrritabilityA survey study using questionnaire was conducted in 530 people (270 men, 260 women) living or not in vicinity of cellular phone base stations, on 18 Non Specific Health Symptoms. Comparisons of complaints frequencies in relation with distance from base station and sex, show significant (p < 0.05) increase as compared to people living > 300 m or not exposed to base station, till 300 m for tiredness, 200 m for headache, sleep disturbance, discomfort, etc. 100 m for irritability, depression, loss of memory, dizziness, libido decrease, etc. Women significantly more often than men (p < 0.05) complained of headache, nausea, loss of appetite, sleep disturbance, depression, discomfort and visual perturbations. This first study on symptoms experienced by people living in vicinity of base stations shows that, in view of radioprotection, minimal distance of people from cellular phone base stations should not be < 300 m.

Asthma, in offspring

Maternal exposure to magnetic fields during pregnancy in relation to the risk of asthma in offspring

NLi, DK, Chen H, Odouli R – Division of Research, Kaiser Permanente, Canada
Asthma was clinically diagnosed among 626 children who were followed up for as long as 13 years. All participants carried a meter to measure their MF levels during pregnancy.
RESULTS: …an increased risk of asthma in offspring: every 1-mG increase of maternal MF level during pregnancy was associated with a 15% increased rate of asthma in offspring. …compared with the children whose mothers had a low MF level (median 24-hour MF level, ≤0.3 mG) during pregnancy, children whose mothers had a high MF level (>2.0 mG) had more than a 3.5-fold increased rate of asthma … while children whose mothers had a medium MF level (>0.3-2.0 mG) had a 74% increased rate of asthma.
CONCLUSION: Our findings provide new epidemiological evidence that high maternal MF levels in pregnancy may increase the risk of asthma in offspring.

The influence of direct mobile phone radiation on sperm quality

2014: Gorpinchenko I, Nikitin O, Banyra O, Shulyak A. – Institute of Urology at the National Academy of Medical Sciences of Ukraine
RESULTS: The number of spermatozoa with progressive movement in the group, influenced by electromagnetic radiation, is statistically lower than the number of spermatozoa with progressive movement in the group under no effect of the mobile phone. The number of non-progressive movement spermatozoa was significantly higher in the group, which was influenced by cell phone radiation. The DNA fragmentation was also significantly higher in this group.
CONCLUSIONS: A correlation exists between mobile phone radiation exposure, DNA-fragmentation level and decreased sperm motility.

Environmental Electromagnetic field and Female Fertility

By Leila Roshangar and Jafar Soleimani – “There is no doubt that cell damages are the basis of all disorders occurs after EMF exposure. In support of our findings Sandra et al/ (Sandra et al. 2000) suggested that EMF-exposure might impair mammalian female reproductive potentiality by reducing the capacity of the follicles to reach a developmental stage that is an essential pre requisite for reproductive success…
…our results suggest that apoptosis plays a critical role in the degeneration of ovarian cortical tissue, luminal epithelium, glandular epithelium and stromal cells in uterus and luminal epithelium in fallopian tube. The present EMF-exposure model can be used when striving to find ways to improve the viability of ovarian tissue in order to grow follicles for subsequent IVF treatment, and or to protect reproductive organs from EMF effect. …”

Environmental Electromagnetic field and Female Fertility

By Leila Roshangar and Jafar Soleimani – “There is no doubt that cell damages are the basis of all disorders occurs after EMF exposure. In support of our findings Sandra et al/ (Sandra et al. 2000) suggested that EMF-exposure might impair mammalian female reproductive potentiality by reducing the capacity of the follicles to reach a developmental stage that is an essential pre requisite for reproductive success…
…our results suggest that apoptosis plays a critical role in the degeneration of ovarian cortical tissue, luminal epithelium, glandular epithelium and stromal cells in uterus and luminal epithelium in fallopian tube.

Sperm countEffect of cell phone usage on semen analysis in men attending infertility clinic: an observational study.
By Agarwal A, Deepinder F, Sharma RK, Ranga G, Li J. Reproductive Research Center, Glickman Urological Institute and Department of Obstetrics-Gynecology, Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Cleveland, Ohio 44195, USA. agarwaa@ccf.org
Three hundred sixty-one men undergoing infertility evaluation were divided into four groups according to their active cell phone use: group A: no use; group B: <2 h/day; group C: 2-4 h/day; and group D: >4 h/day. The comparisons of mean sperm count, motility, viability, and normal morphology among four different cell phone user groups were statistically significant. Mean sperm motility, viability, and normal morphology were significantly different in cell phone user groups within two sperm count groups. The laboratory values of the above four sperm parameters decreased in all four cell phone user groups as the duration of daily exposure to cell phones increased. CONCLUSION(S): Use of cell phones decrease the semen quality in men by decreasing the sperm count, motility, viability, and normal morphology. The decrease in sperm parameters was dependent on the duration of daily exposure to cell phones and independent of the initial semen quality.

The influence of direct mobile phone radiation on sperm quality

2014: Gorpinchenko I, Nikitin O, Banyra O, Shulyak A. – Institute of Urology at the National Academy of Medical Sciences of Ukraine
RESULTS: The number of spermatozoa with progressive movement in the group, influenced by electromagnetic radiation, is statistically lower than the number of spermatozoa with progressive movement in the group under no effect of the mobile phone. The number of non-progressive movement spermatozoa was significantly higher in the group, which was influenced by cell phone radiation. The DNA fragmentation was also significantly higher in this group.
CONCLUSIONS: A correlation exists between mobile phone radiation exposure, DNA-fragmentation level and decreased sperm motility.

Maternal exposure to magnetic fields during pregnancy in relation to the risk of asthma in offspring

NLi, DK, Chen H, Odouli R
Division of Research, Kaiser Permanente, Canada

Asthma was clinically diagnosed among 626 children who were followed up for as long as 13 years. All participants carried a meter to measure their MF levels during pregnancy.

RESULTS: …an increased risk of asthma in offspring: every 1-mG increase of maternal MF level during pregnancy was associated with a 15% increased rate of asthma in offspring. …compared with the children whose mothers had a low MF level (median 24-hour MF level, ≤0.3 mG) during pregnancy, children whose mothers had a high MF level (>2.0 mG) had more than a 3.5-fold increased rate of asthma … while children whose mothers had a medium MF level (>0.3-2.0 mG) had a 74% increased rate of asthma.

CONCLUSION: Our findings provide new epidemiological evidence that high maternal MF levels in pregnancy may increase the risk of asthma in offspring.

Subjective symptoms related to GSM radiation from mobile phone base stations

December 2013
Claudio Gómez-Perretta, Enrique A Navarro, Jaume Segura, Manuel Portolés
Correspondence to Professor Enrique A Navarro; enrique.navarro@uv.es

“The symptoms most related to exposure were lack of appetite (OR=1.58, 95% CI 1.23 to 2.03); lack of concentration (OR=1.54, 95% CI 1.25 to 1.89); irritability (OR=1.51, 95% CI 1.23 to 1.85); and trouble sleeping (OR=1.49, 95% CI 1.20 to 1.84).”

Recommendations We subscribe to the guidelines observed by other authors in following the principle of prevention while the non-thermal effects are not considered in any official standard. This includes exposure minimisation within the limits of technical feasibility to guarantee a significant reduction in long-term radiation exposure to cellular phone towers in residential areas. Epidemiological and clinical studies should continue to observe possible health changes in the population. Finally, clear information about the correct use of newer electronic devices should be implemented..
