Mobile phone affects cerebral blood flow in humans. Finland, February 2006
RF exposure and Waldenstroms Macroglobulinemia, a rare condition (perhaps related to Hughes Syndrome?)
Mobile phone radiation and the dielectric properties of blood. Bo Sernelius, Sweden. Theory, but may help explain observed effects.
Pseudo-iron deficiency in a French population living near high-voltage transmission lines: a dilemma for clinicians. Issues of EMF and iron metabolism.
Pseudo-iron deficiency in a French population. The full report
Graphic images of this effect on blood from Engelhartstetten, Germany. This site has lots more to offer, on trees, bees and white storks (in German).
Erythrocyte rouleau formation under polarized electromagnetic fields. (Erythrocyte rouleau = clumps of red blood cells.) This is significant: mobile phone mast signals are highly polarised.
20 seconds on a mobile phone causes red blood cells to clump together (German high school study, March 2005)
Cardiovascular risk in operators under radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation, K Vangelova et al., 2006
Exposure to pulse-modulated radio frequency electromagnetic fields affects regional cerebral blood flow, Huber et al., 2005
Elevated white blood cell counts have often been associated with people experiencing adverse effects from masts, but doctors are not often willing to test, because they fail to give the association credibility:
