Motorola funded counter research on microwave DNA damage
Dr Henry Lai and Dr Narendra Singh used a DNA Comet Assay developed by Dr Singh to determine the microwaves damaged DNA-strands. They found that nonthermal microwave exposures significantly caused single and double DNA stranded breakage in living mice brains. The cellphone company Motorola wanted to prove that these studies were wrong and that microwaves and cell phone radiation do not cause DNA strand breakage. They funded Dr Roti Roti at Washington University, St Louis to replicate the Lai and Singh studies to try to show that they do not produce these effects. Dr Roti Roti used a different, much less sensitive assessment method and used a cell-line not living mice. Hence it is not a replicate study. They claimed not to show any DNA strand breakage from radiation exposures. The analysis of their own published data shows that they actually did show that microwaves and cellphone non-thermal radiation significantly damages DNA strands and enhances significant repair rates in human cells....
