“A Study on Effects of Cell Phone Tower–Emitted Non-Ionizing Radiations in an Allium cepa Test System,” Environmental Monitoring Assessment, February 13, 2024. Onion roots exposed to ~1-13 µW/cm² RF from cell towers showed “enhancement of oxidative stress and genotoxicity.” The higher the exposure, the greater the effect. Levels are orders of magnitude lower than most exposure limits. From Guru Nanak Dev University, Amritsar, India.
