The Effect of Electromagnetic Radiation from Antennas on Children in Schools in Nablus Area

" This study concerns about the effects of Electromagnetic radiation from antennas on arterial blood pressure (systolic (SBP), diastolic (DBP)), heart pulse rate (HPR), blood oxygen saturation (SPO2%) of children in schools. The sample consists of 273 children of both genders (91 female, 182 male), classified into two groups; 10-12 years and 13-16 years. The sample was taken from three different schools in Nablus area. The measured power flux density in schools was 1862µw/m2, 161.333µw/m2 and 31..81µw/m2. Measurements of blood oxygen saturation, heart pulse rate, arterial blood pressure (systolic and diastolic) were taken for the selected sample before and after the exposure to electromagnetic radiation from antennas. Positive correlation (Pearson Correlation Coefficient) was found for all measured variables. The statistical results showed that Pearson correlation coefficient (R) between the dependent variables (SBP, DBP, HPR, SPO2%) before and after the exposure to electromagnetic radiations from antennas is strong and the Probability (P) is < 0.05.

This study shows that there is a significant shift of the measured mean values of arterial blood pressure (systolic and diastolic), heart pulse rate, and blood oxygen saturation of the children due to exposure of electromagnetic radiation from antennas within the normal ranges."
