health problems disappeared after dismantling of a mobile phone base station

The German journal “Environmental Medicine Society” published in issue 12/2014 a mobile study of a Japanese research team. 107 residents of a skyscraper in Okinawa participated in 2009 in a clinical study in conjunction with a questionnaire. The response rate to the questionnaire was 88%.
Background: In the eight-storey high-rise building was attached in 1998 a mobile antenna in the range of 800 MHz. In March 2008, two additional transmission facilities were put into operation.
