Low intensity radiofrequency radiation: a new oxidant for living cells

Abstract
Radiofrequency radiation (RFR), e.g. electromagnetic waves emitted by our cell phones and Wi-Fi, are referred to as non-ionizing. This means that in contrast to the ionizing radiation, which does induce ionization of water and biologically important macromolecules, RFR does not have a capacity for such effects. Unlike, for example X-rays, the energy of RFR is not enough to break electrons off the molecules. However, is RFR completely safe for public health? Traditionally, the...

Key words: Cancer; Electrohypersensitivity; Oxidative stress; Radiofrequency radiation
