Denis Habauzit’s group Inserm exposed three batches of the same type of skin cells, each from a different source, to 60.4 GHz millimeter waves in “exactly the same way” and looked at changes in gene expression. They saw divergent responses.
For the 3 samples, they found the expression of some genes went up, others went down and some were unchanged: “Surprisingly, we found three different expression profiles despite using identical exposure conditions.” Note keratinocytes are the most common type of skin cells.
The clear message: An important variable is unaccounted for. Keep this in mind when evaluating 5G experimental findings on skin cells – as well as other studies.
The work was sponsored by Anses which favors precaution and more health research, especially for 5G radiation.
-Jan 27TH: In new report, ANSES the French health & environment agency, wants to learn more about impacts of 5G http://translate.google.com/translate?sl=fr&tl=en&u=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.anses.fr%2Ffr%2Fcontent%2Fd%25C3%25A9ploiement-de-la-5g-en-france-l%25E2%2580%2599anses-se-mobilise-pour-%25C3%25A9valuer-les-risques-pour-la-sant%25C3%25A9
-Major new report from ANSES on power-frequency EMFs out today. French govt recommends precaution especially for children and pregnant women. Also: No high-voltage lines & substations near schools & hospitals. … And more research. http://bit.ly/2L4Y88p
From Jerry Phillips, then in Ross Adey’s lab in Loma Linda, now at UCCS: “Back in 1988, Motorola criticized my comet studies which were done with a single cell line because the responses went up, down, stayed the same with different exposure regimens.. “Even when I used the same procedures, effects, while generally the same, differed in magnitude. This wasn’t earth-shattering science then, nor is it now. No matter how hard you try to maintain things the same when you work with cultured cells, you can’t, period.”
My group published similar research in 2006 and 2010 studies on genes and on proteins, respectively.
