Other Studies - Growth and Maturation

De Pomerai and colleagues continued their experiments with the nematode C. elegans and found that larvae exposed to weak microwaves had increased growth rate and also had a higher proportion maturing into egg-bearing adults. Atli (2006) used Drosophilia melanogaster and found that exposure to a 10 GHz field caused developmental delay, and decrease in the number of offspring.
