The 10 year study was conducted using 2G and 3G wireless radiation exposure on animals for 9 hours each day.

Exception Handling and Use of Cursors in PL/SQL Blocks

SQL is a non procedural language and so cannot do processing of either the data used to formulate the query or process the query. For example a SQL query cannot be placed in a loop or a dynamic SQL statement cannot be constructed by just using SQL alone.
