A discussion on the health effects of pulsed microwaves from antennas and wireless devices, notably on the immune system and the possible risks presented by 5G.
Igor Belyaev holds a Master's of physical engineering and radiation dosimetry from the prestigious Moscow Engineering Physics Institute, a PhD in radiobiology from the Soviet Academy of Science’s Institute of Biophysics as well as a doctorate of Science in genetics from the St-Petersburg State University. A member of the World Health Organization’s Working Group on electromagnetic fields (EMFs), he a professor in the Radiobiology Laboratory of the Institute of General Physics, at the Russian Academy of Science, in Moscow, an Associate Professor of Toxicological Genetics at Stockholm University, and heads the Radiobiology Laboratory in the Slovak Academy of Science’s Cancer Research Institute, in Bratislava.
In 2011, the editors of Bioelectromagnetics awarded him and his seven co-authors the award for the most influential paper published in the scientific journal between 2006 and 2010. Exposure of rat brain to 915 MHz GSM microwaves induces changes in gene expression but not double stranded DNA breaks or effects on chromatin conformation was published in the journal in May 2006. The study showed that a 915 megahertz radiofrequency(RF)/microwave signal emitted by a cellular phone could cause changes in gene expression in rat brain. These changes altered proteins essential in the fight against cancer and other diseases, affecting regulation of neurotransmitters, permeability of the blood brain barrier and melatonin production.
