Significant concerns have been raised about the potential harmful impact of radio frequencies (RF) transmitted from these devices, especially with the excessive usage of mobile telecommunication systems. A faraday cage was constructed to house cell culture plates in between a radio transmitter and its receiver. Three different cell lines were cultured on 10μg/mL of collagen and fibronectin and exposed to RF using an 8-bit encrypted pulse signal at 433 MHz, 1.02 (Amps) for 3 hours to determine the cell proliferation effects. The results demonstrated that HFF-1 on fibronectin with RF exposure compared to no exposure significantly increased the proliferation rate by 1.55-folds on days 3 and 1.53-folds on day 7, respectively. HFF-1 on collagen with radio transmission compared to no transmission, the proliferation rate significantly increased on 2.34-folds on day 3 and 2.18-folds on day 7 respectively. In contrast, the SKBR3 on fibronectin with radio transmission compared to no transmission the proliferation rate significantly increased by 2.63-folds on day 3 and significantly decreased by 1.68-folds on day 7. Likewise, SKBR3 on collagen with radio transmission unveiled the proliferation rate significantly increased by 1.11-folds on day 3 and significantly decreased by 6.49-folds on day 7. Moreover, L6 on fibronectin with RF exposure compared to no exposure, the proliferation rate significantly decreased by 1.54-folds on day 7. L6 on collagen with radio transmission, revealed the proliferation rate significantly increased by 1.69-folds on day 3 and significantly decreased by 1.64-folds on day 7. In conclusion, radio transmission exposure significantly increases the proliferation rate of HFF-1 cell-lines and significantly decreases the cell proliferation of both the SKBR3 and L6 cell lines overall.
