Radiation Exposure: Major New Study Links Cell Phone Exposure to Cancer in Rats

A new study conducted by the US National Toxicology Program has linked radiation from cell phone exposure to cancer in rats. This report reignites the controversy that was sparked by earlier scientific research of the positive causal relationship. Those studies were downplayed by the Industry. Workplace exposures may ultimately result in in a surge of disease and an epidemic of workers' compensation claims in the near future.


Scientific American Reported:
"Researchers at the National Toxicology Program (NTP), a federal interagency group under the National Institutes of Health, led the study. They chronically exposed rodents to carefully calibrated radio-frequency (RF) radiation levels designed to roughly emulate what humans with heavy cell phone use or exposure could theoretically experience in their daily lives. The animals were placed in specially built chambers that dosed their whole bodies with varying amounts and types of this radiation for approximately nine hours per day throughout their two-year life spans. 'This is by far—far and away—the most carefully done cell phone bioassay, a biological assessment. This is a classic study that is done for trying to understand cancers in humans,' says Christopher Portier, a retired head of the NTP who helped launch the study and still sometimes works for the federal government as a consultant scientist. 'There will have to be a lot of work after this to assess if it causes problems in humans, but the fact that you can do it in rats will be a big issue. It actually has me concerned, and I’m an expert.'"
