This study explored the possible effects of RF exposure from GSM or DCS mobile telephones on the rhythmic secretion of the hormone melatonin in healthy male volunteers. Telephone use took place under controlled conditions for two hours per day, five days a week for four weeks.

Analysis of blood samples taken before, during and after the test period found no evidence of RF-related effects on melatonin secretion.
