Hematologic changes in workers exposed to radio wave radiation

Hematologic changes in workers exposed to radio wave radiation

Arhiv Za Higijenu Rada i Toksikologiju 42(4): 367-373

Haematological parameters were measured in 43 radar operators employed in air traffic control occupationally exposed to microwave radiation of low intensity over a period of four years. Exposure to heat, soft X-ray radiation and noise were within maximally allowed limits. The haematological changes included a decreased number of erythrocytes, reticulocytes, platelets, segmented granulocytes and monocytes, and an increased number of leucocytes and lymphocytes. The changes were not pathologically significant and most of them were reversible.
