Control group #3

Human peripheral blood lymphocytes were isolated from a healthy 60 years old male donor by differential centrifugation on Histopaque (Sigma-Aldrich Chemicals ltd.) from 30 ml of whole blood obtained via venipuncture of v.cubitale into vacutainers containing anticoagulant (K2), and maintained in RPMI 1640 nutrient with antibiotics and antimycotics.. Four standardized samples of the culture were placed in 2ml phials sealed with a plastic cap and pre-sterilised at 121degrees C under pressure. There was about 0.5 of culture in each sample. All glassware and instruments were handled in a purified air laminar flow unit to avoid bacterial contamination.

This control group describes the number of lymphocytes after 8 hours of irradiation by a mobile phone without GOLD*CHIP. During this test run, the test tubes with the blood were in a metal container and the mobile phone was outside this container. Again, it should be noted that the mobile phone (Philips C12) was only in stand-by mode during all test runs !

The analysis of ten series of tests showed am average number of:

> 68 viable lymphocytes (black columns)
> 19 non-viable lymphocytes (red columns)

These values, which were compared to those of the control group #2, prove that the metal container was able to attenuate the (external, externally penetrating) mobile phone radiation. In contrast to the control group #1, however, a drastic reduction of viable lymphocytes and a markedly larger number of non-viable lymphocytes were also observed.

If you think that products available on the market that imitate a Faraday cage will help you against external radiation: you are wrong !

Living in a "Farady's cage" is anything but recommendable; as the test series with the control group #3 clearly shows.
