VALLEJO-LOPEZ, Alida; PERDOMO, Tania  and  PENAFIEL-PAZMINO, Magaly. Radiofrequency waves exposure and health changes. Rev Ecuat Neurol [online]. 2017, vol.26, n.1, pp.61-66. ISSN 2631-2581.

The cell phone is a device widely used by people of all ages and all over the world. Among the studies regarding the harmful effects of radiation on the human body there is no consensus. It is therefore necessary to analyze the theoretical references about the deleterious effects of radiation on humans and identify a set of actions to help reduce exposure to this radiation. The overall objective is to give information to the user about excessive exposure to radio frequency by the indiscriminate use of cell phone and to warn about the health problems that can occur and the consequences that could trigger in the future. Radiation can affect humans negatively, especially prolonged exposure. Various studies reviewed indicate that radiation is associated with the onset of health disorders and described that fundamental mechanism to produce damage in man are thermal, non-thermal and a thermal effects, but it is required to extend studies, with emphasis on epidemiological, to analyze the generated hypotheses about this particular.

Keywords : health effects; radio frequency; exposure.
