Scientists End 13 Year Debate Proving Non-ionizing RF Microwave Effect Causes Cell Phone Radiation DNA Damage
The prevailing view that non-ionizing cell phone radiation can not cause DNA damage was first challenged academically with a theory Penn State published in 2001 titled, DNA and the Microwave Effect, January 20, 2001. New studies on (ROS) Oxygen Species Production and RF, proves Penn State theory correct and cell phone radiation does cause DNA damage in two-stage process. .

According to RF Safe, it has now been proven that human toxicity to microwave radiation depends not only on power, but frequency as well. High-frequency ionizing radiation, such as gamma or X-rays, can damage DNA molecules directly, and low-frequency radiation such as cell phone radio waves, classified as non-ionizing were first recognized as having the potential of a Microwave effect (second stage DNA damage) in a paper published January 20, 2001 Penn State University, DNA And The Microwave Effect http://www.rfsafe.com/dna-and-the-microwave-effect/.
The potential mechanisms involved were theorized as a two stage process that invoked a cascading effect that broke down DNA bonds.
The energy level of a microwave photon is only 10-5 eV, whereas the energy required to break a covalent bond is 10 eV, or a million times greater. Based on this fact, it has been stated in the literature that “microwaves are incapable of breaking the covalent bonds of DNA.
"Mobile phone EMR is non-ionizing radiation, still powerful enough to heat body tissue the same way a microwave oven cooks food, but what is important to understand is that profound changes to biological processes happen at below thermal levels of exposure," says John Coates, founder of RF Safe Corporation.
According to Coates, the debate is over cell phone radiation causing heath problems is over and public health policy must be changed to ensure safety of wireless products. Bio-effects in living cells have been observed at an astonishing rate of 92% in 80 peer viewed studies. The overproduction of chemically reactive molecules containing oxygen known as ROS (Reactive Oxygen Species) is proven to damage DNA – a precursor for cancer and many other health effects.
"Unexpectedly, a strong non-thermal character of biological effects" has been documented, the group of scientists wrote.
In the peer reviewed editorial "Low intensity radio-frequency radiation: a new oxidant for living cells" in the scientific journal "Oxidants and Antioxidants in Medical Science" on March 29th 2014 a group Scientists reported that of 80 studies, they had assessed, 92,5 % (= 76 studies) confirmed that mechanisms of inflicting cellular damage happened at below thermal levels. http://www.ejmanager.com/mnstemps/65/65-1394615302.pdf?t=1398177912
Low intensity radio-frequency radiation (RFR) emitted by wireless phone devices "could lead to mutagenic effects through expressive oxidative damage of DNA", because "the substantial overproduction of ROS in living cells under low intensity RFR exposure could cause a broad spectrum of health disorders and diseases, including cancer in humans."
Coates says, those that have long stood the ground that cell phone are completely safe, must accept that not only has the mechanism been described, and confirmed in 92% of the studies peer viewed. There is also physical proof that can be seen with the human eye using a fluorescence based Digital Imaging System developed for measuring DNA damage using single cell gel electrophoresis" (Comet assay) http://www.rfsafe.com/fact-dna-damage-safe-cell-phone-radiation-levels/
