In a previous
study these authors tested the effect of chronic exposure to
GSM-modulated EMF on AKR/J mice, which are genetically predisposed
to develop lymphoma at a high rate, and found no increased risk.
In the present study they examined the effect of exposure of
the same animals to a UTMS signal.
mice were sham-exposed or exposed to a generic UTMS test signal
at 1.966 GHz. There were 160 animals in each group, and there
were also 30 cage controls. The exposed animals were exposed
24 h a day, 7 days per week, at SAR of 0.4W/kg. Animals were
inspected each day and were weighed and palpated weekly to detect
swollen lymph nodes. Visibly diseased mice or those older than
43 weeks were killed, and necropsy and histological examination
performed. The study was blinded.
of ill animals, the mean survival time, and the severity code
of the disease did not differ between the experimental groups.
