Background & Aims: Mobile phone radiation is a major public health concern. This study aimed to determine if a quantitive relation could be found between specific absorption rate (SAR) and salivary volume and C-reactive protein (CRP)

Material & Methods:Unstimulated whole salivary samples of 310 mobile phone users were collected. Mobile phones were categorized into three groups according to their SAR values. The samples were analyzed for probable correlation of volume and CRP content with SAR values.

Results: No statistically significant relation was found between SAR value and the volume of saliva (p>0.05). On the other hand, a statistically significant relation (p>0.01) was found between categories of SAR and salivary CRP

Conclusion: Mobile phone radiation does not affect the salivary volume. Salivary CRP content increases predictably as SAR of the mobile increases.
