Isolated human buccal epithelium cells were irradiated by microwaves of frequency f = 36.64 GHz, surface power density E = 10-2, 10-1, and 1 W/m2, exposure time 10 s. The state of cell membranes was evaluated by the method of vital indigo-carmine and trypan blue staining. The percentage of unstained cells after irradiation at E = 10-1 and 1 W/m2 decreased as a result of the microwave radiation exposure indicating an increase in cell damage or death. The left-hand polarized radiation caused greater cellular damage than the right-hand polarized radiation.
