Study: Electromagnetic noise inhibits radiofrequency radiation-induced DNA damage and reactive oxygen species increase in human lens epithelial cells

From the abstract: The goal of this study was to investigate whether superposing of electromagnetic noise could block or attenuate DNA damage and intracellular reactive oxygen species (ROS) increase of cultured human lens epithelial cells (HLECs) induced by acute exposure to 1.8 GHz radiofrequency field (RF) of the Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM). From the results the authors conclude that DNA damage induced by 1.8 GHz radiofrequency field for 2 h, which was mainly single strand breaks, may be associated with the increased ROS production. Electromagnetic noise could block RF-induced ROS formation and DNA damage.
