Chronic diseases and illnesses associated with non-specific symptoms are on the rise. In addition to chronic stress in social and work environments, physical and chemical exposures at home, at work, and during leisure activities are causal or contributing environmental stressors that deserve attention by the general practitioner as well as by all o...

The result of the study shows that the proportion of newly developing cancer cases was significantly higher among those patients who had lived during the past ten years at a distance of up to 400 metres from the cellular transmitter site, which has been in operation since 1993, compared to those patients living further away, and that the patients f...

... As a recognized man-made pollutant, the environmental effect caused by PLHR is becoming an increasing cause of concern to the public and experts alike [14], which raises the need for large-scale PLHR research [15]. This has led many scientists and researchers to investigate the potential effects and risks to human health [16], with most of the publications being concentrated in the last decades [17]. ...
... Evidence of radiation damage was even found in potted plants inside patient homes (Waldmann-Selsam and Eger, 2013). Thus, this study is certainly complementary to the study by Eger and Jahn (2010) and other research that has shown effects on the health of people by phone masts located in their vicinity (Santini et al., 2002;Eger et al., 2004;Wolf and Wolf, 2004;Abdel-Rassoul et al., 2007;Khurana et al., 2010;Dode et al., 2011;Gómez-Perretta et al., 2013;Shahbazi-Gahrouei et al., 2014;Belyaev et al., 2015). ...
... This could indicate similarities in their pathomechanisms. Similar disturbances in neurotransmitter expression has been described both with chronic exposure to EMF (245) and in CMI patients (232,246). ...
... Epidemiological studies show evidence that populations around RBSs presents a higher probability to develop cancer than non-exposed populations (Dode, 2010;Eger et al., 2004;Wolf, R., & Wolf, D. 2004). In turn, the World Health Organization and the International Agency for Research on Cancer classified in 2011 the radiofrequency electromagnetic field as "possibly carcinogenic" to humans, based on an increased risk for glioma, a malignant type of brain cancer, associated with wireless phone use (Iarc, 2011). ...
... No references to that statement are given. In a review by Khurana et al. [127] two of three studies reported increased incidence of cancer at a distance < 350 m [128] or < 400 m [129] from a base station. Dode et al. [130] reported increased cancer mortality in an area within 500 m from a base station in Belo ...
