TNO research into the effects on humans of GSM and UMTS/3G base stations

30-09-2003 - TNO has undertaken research into the effects of base stations used for mobile phone systems. We looked into systems using GSM and UMTS/3G protocols.
GSM is already in use, UMTS is new. From our research it appears that people have unpleasant sensations when they are exposed to fields generated by UMTS/3G base stations.
The symptoms displayed vary from nausea, tingling sensations to dizziness. These effects have not been detected for GSM base stations.
Furthermore it appears that people close to GSM or UMTS/3G base stations perform better in cognitive tests regarding memory, concentration, reaction time and hand-to-eye coordination.

"In this report a double blind randomized three-way cross over evaluation of general symptoms and cognitive functions with or without exposure to GSM and UMTS-like fields in subjects presenting with complaints subjectively attributed to GSM fields is presented.
From our research it is concluded that our hypoteses to find no relation between presence of RF-fields and the measured parameters is rejected. We have found a statistically significant relation between UMTS-like fields with a field strength of 1V/m and an effect on the Well Being. Further, from the cognitive tasks, it is observed that a number of significant effects is found.
Each exposure frequency is associated with changes in some tasks or parameters, while other frequencies are not.

Without any question, the results justify more scientific research into this area."

This is the future we see..

Our wireless phones reach a coverage of up to 5 Km in the Metropolitan Area in the unlicensed frequency range of 2.4 GHz and an output power of max. 100 mW (between 18 - 27 dB depending on local rules), compared to GSM 900 MHz, 4 Watt with 1880 dB ... This is how we see the future... and you?
