https://doi.org/10.1016/j.envres.2019.03.063 Abstract Introduction The rapid rise in global concerns about the adverse health effects of exposure to radiofrequency radiation (RFR) generated by common devices such as mobile phones has prompted scientists to further investigate the biological effects of these environmental exposures. Non-targeted effects (NTEs) are responses which do not need a direct exposure to be expressed and...

Science  16 Aug 2019: Vol. 365, Issue 6454, pp. 695-699 DOI: 10.1126/science.aax6452 A newly discovered cell type for pain perception Pain has been thought to be initiated by activation of free nerve endings without end organs in the skin. In contrast to this paradigm, Abdo et al. discovered a previously unknown meshlike organ covering the skin that senses...

– written by Alasdair Philips, Technical Director of EMFields Solutions Ltd Many people are very concerned about the roll-out of 5G. We attempt to address some of the issues. Our current Acoustimeter (AM10) and Acousticom2 (AC2) measure 5G signals up to 8 GHz. The main new 5G frequency bands are in the range 3.4 –...

https://doi.org/10.1016/j.celrep.2019.07.020 Graphical Abstract: Extract: Applying light therapy before high-risk non-cardiac or cardiac surgery to enhance the circadian amplitude might be able to provide robust cardioprotection. Light-elicited circadian amplitude enhancement suggests an overall increase in PER2 levels and concomitant cardioprotection even at the trough of the amplitude, indicating that this strategy could promote general cardioprotection and...

https://doi.org/10.1016/j.buildenv.2019.106324 9. Discussion and conclusion The breadth of peer-reviewed scientific research demonstrating biological effects of radiofrequency radiation (RFR) below current guidelines and standards highlights the need to further develop and codify pertinent building technology standards and guidance. Public health risks, accessibility needs, industrial liability and international precautionary actions indicate that RFR is an important performance parameter...

https://doi.org/10.1016/j.mrgentox.2019.07.007 Abstract: Extremely low frequency electromagnetic fields (ELF-EMFs) are not known as definite occupational carcinogens, but some studies have reported the genotoxic effects of these fields on cell lines. The present study aimed to evaluate the effects of long-term occupational exposure to these fields on DNA damage. In this cross-sectional study, blood samples were taken...
