The biological effects of cell phone radiation -

AUVA Report 2009

The Austrian AUVA insurance company commissioned a renowned team of researchers from the Vienna Medical University to take another look at biological effects associated with cell phone radiation.

This latest report shows that there are cells that are most sensitive to cell phone radiation and others less so. Sensitive cells respond with a significant increase in protein synthesis, indicating an increased level of cell stress—at SAR levels as low as 0.1 W/kg.

Since affected cells include especially those that are metabolically active, children and youth seem to be most susceptible to the possible health effects.
