Effect of GSM Radiation on White Blood Cells

Gideon I. Dabo, Stephen D. Songden


The effect of continuous-wave radiation on peripheral blood in albino mice was investigated. A radiation frequency of 2450MHz was applied at an average power density of induced field 10mW/cm2. Ten 13 week old albino mice with average body mass of 35.0g were divided into 3 groups, preliminary group, control group, C and the irradiated group, E. Two (2) mice were used for preliminary studies, four (4) were kept to serve as control batch, and four (4) were exposed to microwaves for 60 days, at 2 hours per day. Peripheral blood samples were taken immediately after irradiation on the 1st, 16th, 32nd and the 60th day of the experiment. The total white blood cells count of both control, C batch and exposed, E batch, as well as the differential white blood cells count were investigated. The morphology of cells was also observed, during each session of the investigation in comparison with control C batch. The results revealed a decrease in the total white cell count which consistently continued in irradiated E batch from the 1st day of irradiation in the sample of the irradiated E batch in comparison with the control C batch samples. Slight increase in relative proportion of the neutrophil was observed in E batch sample in comparison with the C batch samples. Our investigation confirms wave exposure affects the white blood cells parameters of exposed animals.
