Abstract

Background: Concerns regarding the potential physiological effects of exposure to radio frequency (RF) radiation have been increased recently.

Methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted at Faculty of Medicine, Taibah University, Al Madinah Al Monawarrah, and Kingdom of Saudi Arabia during the year 2013-2014. For this purpose a questionnaire was used as data collection tool.
