Cell Phone Radiation Exposure Increases Cancers in Animals

May 27, 2016
Cellphone Radiation Increases Cancer in Animals

Study On Radiation from Cell Phones Continue

Evidence has mounted since 2011 when the World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer deemed radiation from cell phones and other wireless transmitting devices a "possible human carcinogen," reports Newswise.

In a two-year multi-million-dollar study, the U.S. National Toxicology Program (NTP) has found heightened rates of rare cancers in animals of the heart and brain that were exposed to cell phone radiation. Christopher Portier, the former Director of the NTP noted, "This is the best designed animal study ever conducted on this topic."

"The experiment has been done and, after extensive reviews, the consensus is that the same tumors increased in animals that have also been found in human studies," said Ron Melnick, who led the original NTP study design team.

Medical Professionals and their Expert Opinions

President Devra Davis of the Environmental Health Trust (EHT) said, "Every compound known to cause cancer in humans also produces it in animals when well studied. We have to stop experimenting on ourselves and our children and start a vigorous discussion of what we can do right now to prevent a potential public health disaster while we still have time to do so."

Robert Morris MD, PhD, the Senior Medical Advisor of the EHT, said "For more than two decades, many have dismissed cancer risks from cell phones because conventional understanding of the effect of microwaves would suggest there is no mechanism for this to occur. That argument is officially dead."

Melnick told Microwave News, "These data redefine the cell phone radiation controversy. This is a major public health concern."
