"The researchers all arrive at a unanimous conclusion about the functional changes in the sexual system of irradiated animals, expressed in a disturbed estrous cycle in females and disturbed reproductive functions in males and females, a decrease in the number of offspring and a lag in their development in the embryonic and postnatal period. ... Somatic defects, disturbed functions of higher sections of the CNS (Central Nervous System) in prenatally irradiated animals, functionally inadequate activity of the pituitary gland, pronounced changes in nuclein exchange in sexual organs, delayed results (in 2 - 3 generations) of the effect of MCW and UHF, disturbed ernbrogenesis -- these all suggest possible genetic effects.
This places before researchers the definite and complex practical task of protecting female labor, especially, and teenagers from the possible effect of radio-frequency EMF. In relation to this, in the USSR health rules have been amended which forbid women during pregnancy and teen-agers from working with sources of electromagnetic fields in the radio-frequency range."

Next I will demonstrate the important work of Dr Zinaida Gordon and Dr Zorach Glaser.
"The strongest vagotonic reactions (hypotension, bradycardia, changed cardiac conduction), often preceding development of asthenic state, occurred in periodic or regular exposure to low-intensity millimeter waves (tenths or hundredths of mW/cm2). Periodic or regular exposure to centimeter or
decimeter waves of the same intensity produced less pronounced and less frequent vagotonic reactions but more pronounced asthenic manifestations.
Millimeter waves are completely absorbed by the skin and evidently affect its receptors directly. Centimeter and especially decimeter waves are only slightly absorbed by the skin, most of their energy penetrating much more deeply.
Therefore, we assumed that the pronounced vagotonic reactions observed upon exposure to millimeter waves were mainly of a reflex nature, whereas the asthenic manifestations, especially pronounced with exposure to low-intensity centimeter and decimeter waves, could also be the result of a direct effect on the cerebral structures."

"Changes in physiologic function:
1. Striated Muscle Contraction
2. Alteration of Diameter of Blood Vessels (increased vascular elasticity), Dilation
3. Changes in the Oxidative Processes in Tissues and Organs
4. Liver Enlargement
5. Altered Sensitivity to Drug Stimuli
6. Decreased Spernatogenesis (decreased fertility, to sterily)
7. Altered Sex Ratio of Births (more girls!)
8. Altered Menstrual Activity
9. Altered Fetal Development
10. Decreased Lactation in Nursing Mothers
11. Reduction in Diuresis (Ca+ excretion, via urine output)
12. Altered Renal function (decreased filtration in tubules)
13. Changes in Conditioned Reflexes
14. Decreased Electrical Resistance of Skin
15. Changes in the Structure of Skin Receptors of the (a) Digestive, and (b) Blood-Carrying Systems
16. Altered Blood Flow Rate"
No wonder that the RNCNIRP have several times ( 2003, 2008 ) informed the WHO about risks of children and pregnant women. In 1970 the biggest risk was the radar for their operators , now in 2010 it is the "Mini-Radar Attached to Head&Body ' aka mobile phone. Similarly, in 1970 heavy electro-magnetic fields exposure was mostly work-related, now it is chronic 24/7 and continuous.
Any comments about these Russian research papers?
