Cell Phone Radiation Increases Rate of Cancers in Animals

Millions of people around the world consider cell phones a necessity. Cell phones have become part of life in a modern world. It has become so popular and necessary that many even ignored the downsides particularly with regards to cell phone cancer risk from radiation.

Does cell phone radiation really cause cancer?

One study has a definite answer to this question.

According to new report from Microwave News, the U.S. National Toxicology Program (NTP) has discovered increased rates of rare cancers of the heart and brain in animals exposed to cell phone radiation in a long-awaited multi-million dollar two-year study.

Christopher Portier, former Director of the National Toxicology Program noted, “This is the best designed animal study ever conducted on this topic.”

Powerful Evidence: Tumors Found in Animals and People

Although the results of the study were taken from animal experiments, Ron Melnick, who led the original NTP study design team said, “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 some human studies.”

Robert Morris MD PhD, Environmental Health Trust (EHT) Senior Medical Advisor, also attested that the study revealed “extremely powerful evidence” that exposure to cellphone radiation can increase cancer.

Dr Morris added, “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.”

Something Must Be Done

The World Health Organization’s Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer has warned the public that radiation from cell phones and other wireless transmitting devices are “possible human carcinogens.”

But this latest study may be the last straw that cellphone radiation can cause cancer. That is why EHT President Devra Davis PhD MPH stressed that something must be done now to prevent a public health disaster.

“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.” – Dr. Davis
