Specimens of human blood were exposed at specific energy absorption rates of 104 or 193 W kg-1 to 2·45 GHz microwave radiation at temperatures below 36°C. Cultured lymphocytes were examined for induced unstable chromosome and chromatid aberrations and sister chromatid exchanges. The amount of chromosome damage observed did not exceed that found in controls.
