London, Jan 22 ( ANI ): Scientists have apparently found evidence which suggests that micronuclei - present in cancer cells - could potentially disrupt the chromosomes within them, and thus help in triggering disease-causing gene mutations.
George Carlo, PhD, JD, and his colleagues did over 50 studies of cell phone users and found DNA damage (broken strands of DNA called micronuclei are found in the blood and can lead to tumor formation), impaired ability of cells to repair themselves, leakage of the blood-brain barrier, and interference with cardiac pacemakers.
