Another negative study on the heat-shock response
We have reported frequently on the growing number of studies that
have examined whether RFR exposure affects the heat-shock response.
Part of the regulation of the production of heat-shock proteins
uses the heat-shock factor (HSF). Laszlo et al. (2005) found that
exposure to microwaves at 835.62 MHz or 847.74 MHz at either low
SAR (0.6 w/kg) or high (5.0 W/kg) for 5-60 minutes or for up to
7 days did not activate the HSF. They took great pains to control
the temperature of their experiments and point out that other studies
that have reported induction of heat-shock proteins after RFR exposure
may not have been so rigorous in their temperature control.

radiation reported to affect function of the lens
authors of a recent study reported that lenses from the excised
eyes of calves showed functional and microscopic changes when exposed
to microwaves at 1.1 GHz and 2mW for 8 days. The functional changes
appeared after 48 hours of exposure, and tended to recover after
the exposure ceased.
