Caption: Mobile phone research. Mobile telephone suspended over chicken eggs. Mobile phones send and receive data as low-intensity microwaves. There is concern over the effect that this form of electromagnetic radiation may have on biological structures such as human brains, or reproductive structures. There are indications that the microwaves may have an athermal (non-heating) effect which may disrupt sensitive biological structures. The chicken eggs contain embryonic chickens that are being exposed to mobile phone radiations. The embryos will be examined for signs of abnormalities. Photographed in France.
