Evidence for a dose-effect relationshipIn January 2009 the municipality of the
Bavarian town of Selbitz, carried out a health survey by which the data of 251 citizens
was recorded and then analyzed regarding radiation intensity by microwaves. In a second
step, the radiation data was used to stratify the participants in pollution intensity
groups, utilizing place of residence and available readings of the regional mobile
The mean radiation measurements of the groups exposed at most in Selbitz (1.2 V/m) were
substantially higher than the mean radiation of the study population studied in the QUEBEB
study (1) of the German mobile telephone research program (Deutsches
Mobilfunkforschungsprogramm DMF, established mean value 0.07 V/m).
A significant correlation was found dependent on dose-effects for insomnia,
depressions, cerebral symptoms, joint illnesses, infections, skin changes, heart and
circulation disorders, and disorders of the optical and acoustic sensory systems and the
gastro-intestinal tract with objectively determined locations of exposure, which can be
related by the influence of microwaves on the human nervous system.
This work, which has been carried out without external resources, provides a protocol
for surveys of medical practitioners and municipality administrations to estimate possible
health effects of mobile telephone basic stations situated near population residents.
