  • The Reflex Report (2004)  Twelve institutes in seven countries have found genotoxic effects and modified expressions on numerous genes and proteins after radio frequency and extremely low frequency EMF exposure at low levels, below current international safety guidance, to living cells in-vitro.

The idea behind the REFLEX study was to attempt replicate damage already reported to see if the effects were real and whether, or not, more money should be spent of research into the possible adverse health effects of EMF exposure. They concluded that in-vitro damage is real and that it is important to carry out much more research, especially monitoring the long-term health of people.
