Biological Effects of Global System of Mobile Communication- A Review
Current Journal of Applied Science and Technology,
In this study, a review of the biological effects of Global System of Mobile Communication handset was carried out using available literature and safety standards for radiofrequency of the National and International Agencies in conjunction with the International Committee for Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP). The dose received by a biological tissue in time 0.5 minutes of dose as stated by the aforementioned agencies is equal to the microwave of 10mw/cm2 SAR of 2 w/kg. The Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) limit of tissue for occupational workers for a whole body is 0.04 w/kg and for non-occupational workers is 0.08 w/kg. Additionally, GSM users exceeding the above SAR limits are likely to suffer from physiological effects of various forms such as alteration of calcium balance in the nerve tissues and inhibition of cells growth in the human amniotic, disruption of biorhythms due to the influence of electromagnetic field on the epiphysis resulting in dizziness, headaches and brain tumour.
