Impact of 2.45 GHz Microwave Irradiation on the Fruit Fly, Drosophila melanogaster

They are very optimistic when they say that in 1996, the National Academy of Sciences concluded that microwave usage does not affect animal health at the business level of EMF usage, it is on the contrary very clear that it affects if you look to other papers in this site, that on the other side are much more recent than those speculative, "industry interested", conclusions taken at those times.

Anyways authors here have found that irradiation causes various effects on the model that they have used: the fruit fly (Drosophila melanogaster).

" This study indicated that there was no concern regarding the thermal effects of microwave irradiation for levels of daily usage if it is traveling waves. However, it still gave non-thermal effects. We detected genotoxicity and behavioral alterations associated with travelling wave irradiation. Electron spin resonance (ESR) revealed that fruit flies possessed paramagnetic substances in the body such as Fe 3+ , Cu 2+ , Mn 2+ , and organic radicals, and the behavioral tests supported the microwave susceptibility of the insects." {Credits 1}

" International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) put legal ceilings on microwave usage at 1 mW/cm 2." {Credits 1}
