CM/BIO/ECE Seminar Series

Room 223A Physics Bldg. Library


The MU Department of Physics and Astronomy presents the Condensed Matter – Biological Physics – Electrical and Computer Engineering seminar, "Possible Explanation for Cancer in Rats and Humans due to Cell Phone Radiofrequency Radiation," featuring Professor Bernard Feldman, University of Missouri-St. Louis.

UMSL Prof. Bernard Feldman

Dr. Feldman writes, "Very recently, the National Toxicology Program reported a correlation between exposure to whole body 900 MHz radiofrequency radiation and cancer in the brains and hearts of male rats, but no cancers in female rats, male mice or female mice. I propose the following explanation for the results. The neurons around the brain and heart form closed electrical circuits and, following Faraday’s Law, 900 MHz radiofrequency radiation induces 900 MHz electrical currents in these neural circuits. In turn, these 900 MHz currents in the neural circuits generate sufficient localized heat in the neural cells to shift the equilibrium concentration of carcinogenic radicals to higher levels, and thus, to higher incidences of cancer. These ideas will then be applied to the question of the risk of cancer in rats, mice, and humans from cell phone radiofrequency radiation."

The seminar will be hosted by MU Professor Meera Chandrasekhar. It will be held at 4 p.m. on Jan. 25 in Room 223A, Physics Bldg. Library.
