Say F, Altunkaynak BZ, Coşkun S, Deniz ÖG, Yıldız Ç, Altun G, Kaplan AA, Kaya SE, Pişkin A. Controversies related to electromagnetic field exposure on peripheral nerves. J Chem Neuroanat. 2015 Dec 21. pii: S0891-0618(15)00104-0. doi: 10.1016/j.jchemneu.2015.12.
Electromagnetic field (EMF) is a pervasive environmental presence in modern society. In recent years, mobile phone usage has increased rapidly throughout the world. As mobile phones are generally held close to the head while talking, studies have mostly focused on the central and peripheral nervous system. There is a need for further research to ascertain the real effect of EMF exposure on the nervous system. Several studies have clearly demonstrated that EMF emitted by cell phones could affect the systems of the body as well as functions. However, the adverse effects of EMF emitted by mobile phones on the peripheral nerves are still controversial. Therefore, this review summarizes current knowledge on the possible positive or negative effects of electromagnetic field on peripheral nerves.
