Abstract:

A survey of recent, selected Soviet and East European references reveals few new trends in the interpretation of the effects of radio frequency and microwave fields, at least at the clinical level. Soviet and East European investigators continue to report a variety of reversible changes in nervous and related functions which can occasionally be correlated with changes in animal behavior and organelle shifts under experimental and clinical conditions. Western investigators, on the other hand, have been largely unsuccessful in repeating these findings under their own laboratory conditions until somewhat recently. There is now some evidence that some Western investigators are beginning to obtain certain functional and morphological data suggestive of Soviet and East European findings. Recent Soviet, East European, andor Western experimental findings, coupled with the pressure of public opinion, may have a significant effect on their unique positions with regard to the occupational exposure levels.
