I love this study. A perfect example of data manipulation. I actually cut and pasted the abstract below. The conclusion of the study stated that “Our data show that the 900 MHz EMF exposure, at least under our experimental conditions, does not appear to affect endocrine functions in men.” However, if you read it you’ll notice that growth hormone was reduced by 28% and cortisol was reduced by 12%. However, levels returned to normal when cell phone usage was discontinued…. Ok, so how many people use cell phones for a month and then discontinue using them? … that would be almost noone. These authors clearly had an agenda or were funded by a cell phone company.
Fortunately, we have the actual data (assuming it wasn’t also manipulated) and it showed that when you use cell phones, growth hormone levels and cortisol levels decrease dramatically. Consider that growth hormone is involved in tissue repair and in “anti-aging”. Cortisol helps control inflammation, anxiety, etc. So when you are using a cell-phone regularly or even a cordless 900mhz phone, you are accelerating aging and degenerative disease. If you have questions about this, you can call us, but use a land line .

The potential health risks of radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (RF EMFs) emitted by mobile phones are currently of considerable public interest. The present study investigated the effect of exposure to 900 MHz GSM radiofrequency radiation on steroid (cortisol and testosterone) and pituitary (thyroid-stimulating hormone, growth hormone, prolactin and adrenocorticotropin) hormone levels in 20 healthy male volunteers. Each subject was exposed to RF EMFs through the use of a cellular phone for 2 h/day, 5 days/ week, for 4 weeks. Blood samples were collected hourly during the night and every 3 h during the day. Four sampling sessions were performed at 15-day intervals: before the beginning of the exposure period, at the middle and the end of the exposure period, and 15 days later. Parameters evaluated included the maximum serum concentration, the time of this maximum, and the area under the curve for hormone circadian patterns. Each individual’s pre-exposure hormone concentration was used as his control. All hormone concentrations remained within normal physiological ranges. The circadian profiles of prolactin, thyroid-stimulating hormone, adrenocorticotropin and testosterone were not disrupted by RF EMFs emitted by mobile phones. For growth hormone and cortisol, there were significant decreases of about 28% and 12%, respectively, in the maximum levels when comparing the 2-week (for growth hormone and cortisol) and 4-week (for growth hormone) exposure periods to the pre-exposure period, but no difference persisted in the postexposure period. Our data show that the 900 MHz EMF exposure, at least under our experimental conditions, does not appear to affect endocrine functions in men.
