The effect of electromagnetic field of mobile phone on size and shape of red blood cells belonging to blood groups A, B, AB &O is studied using laser diffraction technique. Blood samples were collected from healthy persons and stored in heparin as anticoagulant. The samples were irradiated with mobile phone for 1 hour.The study reveals that the size of exposed erythrocyte increases slightly in A and B blood groups, significantly in blood groups of AB and O, when compared with that of normal. The increase in size of red cells of exposed blood may perhaps be due to the hyper tonicity of the medium, because an influx of water occurs; the cells swell; and the integrity of their membrane is disrupted.
