The radiation RF-EMF causes damage to DNA, heat up of tissues and alter the blood-brain barrier. These effects are real and ARPANSA is active in collaborating with the EHS group, the medical experts as well as researchers. ARPANSA will continue study research related to the health impacts of EMF radiation.

RF-EMF damages DNA
Exposed to man-made electromagnetic fields (EMFs) is associated with DNA damage, as well as other negative health effects. EMFs can disrupt the intracellular ionic levels that are crucial to maintain a cell's electrochemical balance. It can also cause disruption to cell homeostasis and result damages to the DNA. Moreover exposure to EMFs can cause the production of free radicals and reactive oxygen species (ROS).

Exposure to RF-EMF radiation has been associated with changes in the male germ cell's development. This involves the differentiation of the germ cell into spermatozoa as well functioning maturation as spermatozoa pass throughout the epididymis. To study the effects of RF-EMF on male germ cells, a specially-built waveguide machine was designed for the exposure of mice that were not restrained to RF-EME at 2.2 W/kg.

In a study that was conducted recently, researchers discovered that exposure to RF EME caused oxidative DNA damage in the spermatozoa. Sperm DNA fragmentation increased by 18% after a week of treatment, and by 23% after five weeks. Furthermore, DNA damage in mitochondria was observed by measuring the level of a biomarker, 8-hydroxy-2-deoxyguanosine (8-OH-dG).

Although the RF-EMF radiation has not yet been recognized as a true carcinogen. However, numerous studies have revealed that exposure to RF-EMF radiation can damage the integrity of DNA in range of cell lines. In one of these studies researchers were exposed Vero cells to an EMF that was 100Hz, for about 45 minutes. They assessed DNA damage for within 48 hours of exposure to determine if the exposure affected the integrity of DNA.

RF-EMF causes tissue heating
Although the effects of RF-EMF are usually considered as thermal in nature, some studies have revealed that non-thermal effects are also observed. These factors could be responsible for some of the unresolved observations in epidemiological studies of EMF hypersensitivity. Therefore, it is important to look at the non-thermal aspects when conducting a systematic review.

The non-thermal effects that RF-EMF can have may be felt at the cell's membrane. This is an area of research that has been thoroughly investigated. Particularly, the electrochemical behavior of cell membranes has been studied. Current understanding suggests that energy from RF-EMFs that exceeds 1 MHz is transferred to the tissue through dielectric and Ionic dissipation. The theoretical studies have indicated that the energy transferred to tissues could be as high as 200 kV/m.

The electrical properties of tissues are controlled by the composition and distribution of water molecules, ions, and other molecules in the body. This determines how to make emf protection, the original source, absorbent EMR from RF is absorbed by different tissues. Organs with greater conductivity are likely to absorb more of the EMR field and produce more of an effect. This is the reason why the amount of heating in tissues does not increase steadily as it moves from the exterior to the body, but occurs in hot areas. Bone and fatty tissue are less prone to RF heating than other tissues because they are not as water-based. content.

The depth of the field's penetration is determined by the strength and frequency of field. Muscle tissue is more able to absorb field energies than the other tissue and converts it to heat more effectively. Typically the depth of penetration for RF EMF is determined by millimeters (mm). But, the greater the frequency, the more shallow the penetration.

RF-EMF causes blood-brain barrier disruption
Researchers have discovered that RF EMF can alter the blood-brain-barrier, altering sleep patterns and neurotransmitter levels. Furthermore to this, the effects of EMF affect brain function are linked to neurodegenerative disorders. For example, EMF from mobile phones can affect electroencephalogram activity and sleep patterns, and the activities of nitric oxide and xanthin oxidase.

Researchers at Vienna University have studied the effects of exposure to RF EMF on brain cells. They also studied what effects ELF EMFs on the nervous system. While the mechanisms of the cell that play a role are not fully known but there is a clear association between ELF-EMF exposure and myelin depletion. This relationship might account for the electro-hypersensitivity symptoms of electro-hypersensitivity. There are, however, tested methods to regenerate myelin within the brain.

Researchers have found that exposure to 900 MHz EMF enhanced the permeability of BBB and increased indicators of neuronal injury in rats. They also observed increased extravasation of albumin into neurons. Additionally, they observed in 30 minutes exposure at 900 MHz, 99mTc-MIBI increased its permeation to the cerebral cortex. But this effect didn't occur with Evans blue-based injections.

Despite these findings, RF EMF does not have a clear mechanism to disrupt the BBB. Evidence suggests that non-thermal EMF exposure may increase erythrocyte cell membrane permeability, which could influence the BBB and also increase the efflux of calcium-ion. Furthermore, the presence a 99mTc-MIBI radiotracer within the brain has been connected to increased permeability and permeability of the BBB.
