The long term exposure to 900-1800 MHz frequency radiations emitted from 2G mobile phone could cause significantly reduced neuron density and decreased nuclear diameter in the hippocampus neurons of mice.
What frequency is harmful to humans?
Low frequency sounds can be harmful
Human beings are normally able to detect sounds in the range of 20-20,000 Hz and it is well known that sounds within this range can damage the hearing. However, sounds under the frequency of 20 Hz can also affect the ear even though we are unable to hear them.
Are high frequencies dangerous?
In particular, high frequency radiation has a ionizing power, which means is able to remove electrons for atoms and eventually damege biological structures like the DNA. Xrays and gamma rays are very dangerous and can cause terrible damage to biological structures.
Can radio frequency harm you?
High doses of RF radiation can cause injuries through heating. For example, some people accidentally exposed to large amounts of RF radiation from radar equipment have developed severe burns. But it’s not clear if exposure to lower levels of RF radiation, even over long periods of time, can have harmful health effects.
Why is high frequency radiation dangerous to humans?
It has been known for many years that exposure to very high levels of RF radiation can be harmful due to the ability of RF energy to rapidly heat biological tissue. In such cases, restrictive measures or actions may be necessary to ensure the safe use of RF energy.
