Newsletter Nr. 17 / June 2019:

Summaries and assessments of selected studies
In the period from early August to early November 2018, 120 new publications have been identified, and 14 of these were discussed in depth by BERENIS. Based on the selection criteria, five of these publications were selected as the most relevant ones.

1) Experimental animal and cell studies

Impacts of radiofrequency electromagnetic fields on the male reproductive system (Houston et al.
2018)

Mechanistic investigation of the influence of extremely low frequency magnetic fields on fundamental
cellular signal cascades (Wu et al. 2018)

Extremely low frequency magnetic fields, cryptochrome and reactive oxygen species (Sherrard et al.
2018)

Spontaneous electric activity of neuronal cells is reduced after RF-EMF (1800 MHz) exposure (El
Khoueiry et al. 2018)

2) Epidemiological studies

RF-EMF and behavioural problems in 5-year old children (Guxens et al. 2018)
