In this video, we’ll be looking at how the use of cell phones is being associated with kidney damage.
In recent years many histological and physiological studies have been performed in the evaluation of the hazardous effects of electromagnetic fields on human health regarding cancer, renal system, reproduction and development, central nervous system and immune function.
In a report filed on the Journal of Renal Injury Prevention website, an in vitro study was performed to see if exposure to cell phone radiation could affect healthy kidney cells.
In the study, kidney cells were exposed to cell-phone level radiation by using a mobile phone simulator emitting a frequency of 900 MHz. Healthy human kidney cells in three groups were placed into three batches. The first and second groups were exposed to a mobile phone simulator for 1 and 2 hours per day, respectively.
The irradiation was performed for 8 consecutive days. For the third group (the control group), no radiation was applied to the samples, and they completed the assay cycle under identical conditions.
The study results showed that radiation exposure decreased kidney cell survival in the exposed groups by up to 40%. While the study was performed in vitro, the results show that further study is warranted.
If you would like to examine the report for yourself, I have included a link to it below. Many more informative links are available in the report itself.
