Other Studies - Skin

Two papers, authored by the same group of researchers, explored the effect of RFR exposure on the skin (Manchez 2006, Sanchez 2006). Skinless rats were exposed to either 900 or 1800 MHz RFR, either for 2 hours at SAR of 5 W/kg, or for 2 hours per day, 5 days a week, for 12 weeks at 900 or 1800 MHz at SAR of 2.5 or 5 W/kg. There were no significant changes in the skin of exposed rats, when compared with skin from an unexposed part of the same area of the rat, or with control or sham-exposed rats.
