Changed protein content in mouse brain cells after long-term exposure to mobile phone or wireless DECT base radiation

Greek researchers exposed two groups of albino laboratory mice (6 animals per group) to electromagnetic fields (EMFs) from a "typical mobile phone" (specific absorption rate, SAR: 0.17 - 0.37 W/kg, 3 hours per day) or from the...
