According to this recent scientific study published in the journal “Environmental Pollution”, the mechanisms responsible for increased cancer risk include “induction of reactive oxygen species, gene expression alteration and DNA damage through both epigenetic and genetic processes.”

The abstract goes on to say that “In vivo and in vitro studies demonstrate adverse effects on male and female reproduction, almost certainly due to generation of reactive oxygen species. There is increasing evidence the exposures can result in neurobehavioral decrements and that some individuals develop a syndrome of ‘electro-hypersensitivity’ or ‘microwave illness’, which is one of several syndromes commonly categorized as ‘idiopathic environmental intolerance’. While the symptoms are non-specific, new biochemical indicators and imaging techniques allow diagnosis that excludes the symptoms as being only psychosomatic.”
