Biologic Effects and Health Hazards of Microwave Radiation
This 350-page document is the result of a symposium (convened by WHO, among others), held in Warsaw on 15–18 October 1973, with the participation of 60 researchers specializing in the biological effects of microwaves on humans.
This document describes primarily the adverse effects of microwave radiation on neurological, vascular and cardiac systems, as well as on the thyroid and thrombocytes; it also reports that microwaves can cause Type II diabetes, sleep issues, cataracts, opacification of the ocular lens, and behavioural disorders, among others.
