Children exposure to radio waves near mobile phone base stations are receiving a great attention in last years. This work is focused on the effects of radiation emitted by the base stations on the children’s blood and also on the conjugated effect of olive oil on their blood. Children of 6−12 years residing around base stations for more than five years are divided into three groups. The first one served as a control. The second group is assumed to be exposed only to mobile phone radiation, while the third group is exposed to mobile phone radiation and treated with 2.5 mL/day of olive oil for five weeks. The second and the third groups are living nearby mobile phone base stations (100−150) m, more than 5 years. The biochemical parameters of children blood have been evaluated. It was noticed that the concentrations of serum glucose, triglycerides, total cholesterol, and albumin are increased but total concentrations of the proteins and globulins were decreased. Signs of improvements in the previous biochemical parameters were noticed during children treatments with olive oil supplementation.
Key words: Global mobile phone radiation, olive oil, blood picture, glucose, albumin, triglycerides, total cholesterol, total proteins
