Detection of low level microwave radiation induced deoxyribonucleic acid damage vis-à-vis genotoxicity in brain of fischer rats

" Based on the present findings, it is concluded that chronic microwave radiation exposure at low-level induces DNA damage. Prolonged exposure may lead to neurodegenerative disorders. Although, the energy of microwaves is not sufficient directly to break a chemical bond in DNA, genotoxic effects may be mediated by indirect mechanisms such as generation of oxygen free radicals or a disturbance in DNA-repair processes. In order to minimize the exposure, safe limits with respect to frequency and duration of microwave radiation must also be prescribed in view of its increased use in society. However, knowledge of the possible health effects of microwave radiation is still inadequate and inconclusive. Though, the present study seems preliminary, this study is providing the evidence of the effect of microwave radiation at very low-level of exposure and at the lower, middle and upper frequency used in mobile telecommunication." {Credits 1}
