How: Four groups of rats were studied – three were exposed to internationally acceptable levels of GSM electromagnetic fields (ie an average of 27 volts per metre), two hours a day, seven days a week.
Results: Exposed groups of rats had a mortality rate of 60 percent, compared with 29 percent for the non-exposed group.
- Out of a total of 124 rats, only 19 were autopsied. Of those, 16 or 17 died of tumors (neck, knee etc)
- high mortality rate could be due to the assault on the immune system resulting from GSM exposure. Blood samples taken every three months showed an increase in white globules among the exposed rats.
