The authors conducted experiments on the effect of RFR on bacterial cultures. They exposed the cultures to 835 MHz RFR at a SAR of 4 W/kg for 48 hours. They compared the effect of the RFR with control cultures on bacterial reverse mutation and on DNA degradation.

The RFR alone showed no effect in these experiments. When a mutagen was added, the RFR exposed groups showed alterations in the reverse mutation frequency, but the results were inconsistent.

The authors conclude:

"Thus, we suggest that 835 MHz EMF under the conditions of our study neither affected the reverse mutation frequency nor accelerated DNA degradation in vitro".
