Through the years several governments, committees and international bodies issues warning regarding RF and ELF EMF/EMR. As more science and proof is becoming clear and wide spreed more and more warning have been issues and more reports have concluded that exposure to RF and ELF fields is not healthy and can have health effects that are not related to the heat effect.
The industry, and scientist which follow it, argue that RF and ELF photon does not have enough energy to damage DNA. Well this article say they got it all wrong. It is not the single photon's energy that count but the full wave of photons' energy over time, and there is enough energy to damage DNA (and for other bio effects):
Since I am not a scientist I am not going to bring a list of studies and then explain them. If you need a list of studies, so you can read and decide for yourself, I can recommend the following site that has a list of most studies about health effect of Electromagnetic Radiation that were published: http://www.powerwatch.org.uk/science/studies.asp
In addition you can find more studies on the following pages:
More and more studies show biological and health effects of RF EMR, even at very low levels which don't cause any heat effect and were considered to be safe.
The picture below is taken from the "Nerve Cell Damage in Mammalian Brain after Exposure to Microwaves from GSM Mobile Phones" study by Leif G. Salford, Arne E. Brun, Jacob L. Eberhardt, Lars Malmgren, Bertil R.R. Persson. (please see the source link below for full study).
Please notice the red spots on the radiated brain (Right picture), these are "protein leakage from blood vessels" marking the damage to the brain's blood vessels which can cause headaches and other symptoms.
The comet trail "dust like" particles in the pictures are DNA breaks. The picture below clearly shows that DNA breaks accusers after exposure to X-ray and Cell phone radiation. The source of the picture is from Dr Henry Lai and Dr Narendra research about "Single- and double-strand DNA breaks in rat brain cells after acute exposure to radio-frequency electromagnetic radiation"
Dr. Neil Cherry about Motorola attempt to contredict this study: http://www.buergerwelle.de/pdf/emr_motorola_funded_counter_research_on_dna_breakage.pdf
Mike Repacholi exposed mice to RF radiation, similar to that emitted from cellphones, and found that the risk for Lymphoma was found to be significantly higher in the mice that were exposed. Several years after the research was done, Repacholi took back his finding and was appointed to several roles in the WHO and was lately hired as a consultant to the industry.

On their research Mechanism of short-term ERK activation by electromagnetic fields at mobile phone frequencies from 2007, Dr. Joseph Friedman and Prof. Roni Seger, from the Department of Biological Regulation, The Weizmann Institute of Science, found that exposure to RF electromagnetic radiation caused oxygenate stress and for the first time showed a detailed molecular mechanism by which electromagnetic irradiation from mobile phones interacts and changes cell communication and activities.
Cell phone usage by pregnant women and of children causes behavioral difficulties - Divan HA, Kheifets L, Obel C, Olsen J - 2008
"Exposure to cell phones prenatally-and, to a lesser degree, postnatal-was associated with behavioral difficulties such as emotional and hyperactivity problems around the age of school entry"
The interphone study final result ware published on 17/05/2010, after 5 years of delay. a first look suggests that using a mobile phone actually protect you from brain cancer, how could that be? a second look shows that people who use their mobile phone for more then 27 minutes per day (1640 hours in 10 years) have 40% higher risk of getting a brain tumor. In the study itself there were many issues and problems that cause the results to be moderated. Appendix 2 of the study try to mathematically fix some of the problems in the study resulting with higher risk (please see picture bellow).

Table 2 (out of the interphone study) - ORs between mobile phone use and brain tumors (meningioma and glioma separately).
Table 2 (out of the appendix # 2 of the interphone study) - ORs is higher!
"Use of mobile phones gave an increased risk, highest in the >10 years' latency group yielding odds ratio (OR) = 2.4, and 95% confidence interval (CI) = 1.4-4.1. The risk increased with cumulative number of lifetime hours for use, and was highest in the >2,000 h group (OR = 3.4, 95% CI = 1.6-7.1)."

Polish army RF-MW exposure study - Szmigielski S - 1996
"Cancer morbidity in subjects occupationally exposed to high frequency (radiofrequency and microwave) electromagnetic radiation". this study tracked the RF-MW exposure levels and health records of army personal of the polish army for 15 years (both soldiers that were exposed and those who were not). The study shows that personal that was exposed to RF-WM radiation had added risk of 2.07 of cancer, and that their morbidity rate was higher.

However I would like to show you the following video, 2 pictures and a single chart that can maybe tell the all story.
Few years ago I came across pictures and articles about live blood cell analysis of human exposed to RF radiation. For years I search for a good, simple, easy to understand video clip that explains the test and shows parts of it.
This video, made by Dr. Magda Havas from the Environmental & Resource Studies, Trent University, Peterborough, ON, Canada, is the best I have ever seen until today. It is short, self explanatory and easy to understand. Dr. Magda Havas explains the test and the outcome while showing pictures and videos from the test itself.
The video show what happens to a human blood when exposed to electromagnetic radiation from a computer and also from a cordless phone. The test outcomes are clearly seen and can explain some of the symptoms of Radiation exposure and of Electromagnetic Hyper sensitive (EHS).
The answer is yes, exposure to electromagnetic radiation from DECT phone does change the hart bit of some people (electro hypersensitive included). The below video summeriest the experiment done by DR. Magda Havas and DR. Jeff Marrongelle that was done in March 2010 and will be published later on in 2010. The experiment tested if exposure to EMR from DECT phones effect people hart rate. The outcomes show that it does, watch the following video for more info.More about Dr. Magda Havas at http://www.magdahavas.com/ and http://www.magdahavas.org/.

The chart below clearly shows that industry funded research (in red color) show none or small increased risk while independent resource (in blue) shows that the risk increases a great deal more.
In addition some of the industry funded research show improvement or less risk than the control group. This can be cause by faults in the study or it can really represent a change in the functional of the body (that can have good measured aspects but also some hidden bad aspects).
Extreme low frequency electromagnetic fields have been calcified by the WHO/IARC as "possibly carcinogenic to humans" in 2002. The classification came after several studies an pool analysis showed that people, and specially children, that lived or studies next or under to high voltage power line had a much larges risk of getting different types of cancer. The level that is considered to be the risk threshold is 2-3 mG. The ICNIRP, very high, standard of 1000 mG deals with only short term exposure, yet it is being considered by many governance and electrical companies as the only standard that covers also long term exposure. The ICNIRP's standard takes into consideration only one health effect which is muscle tension.
