The general public applications of microwaves are essentially the cellular phone and the microwave oven. Some years ago, articles in the national and international press started to express concern about cancer incidences among radar technicians and people housed in the neighborhood of antenna base stations. In this study, a possible link between microwave exposure and the physiological and cellular changes is being evaluated by an epidemiological long-term animal study on 120 rats, for 21 months. In order to assess the possible biological effects of microwaves, we selected among others the following parameters: lymphocytes, monocytes, granulocytes, erythrocytes and blood platelets
