US Study on Cellphone Radiation Won't Settle Debate

The vermin's entire bodies were blasted with way higher levels of the radiation than is allowed for cell phone communication, however, so the scientists warned against drawing links to Snapchat-addicted humans.

The incidences of other cancers were not higher, statistically speaking, than the researchers would have expected to see in rats as they aged in general.

One of the studies reports that male rats exposed to very high levels of radiofrequency radiation grew tumors around their hearts.

In this study, researchers exposed rats and mice to high levels of radiofrequency radiation, 9 hours a day for more than two years. A draft report was released on Friday for public comment and peer review, in advance of an external expert review on March 26-28.

Bucher also said that, "I have not changed the way I use a cellphone, no". Some of the rats in the study did show DNA damage but there was no clear evidence that this was related to the radio waves.

The complete results, extracted from studies involving about 3,000 laboratory animals, led NTP scientists to conclude the increased rate of malignant schwannomas in male rats was caused by exposure to the radiofrequency radiation. Based on limited research that shows a potentially elevated risk of schwannomas near the brain in people, the International Agency for Research on Cancer now lists radio-frequency fields as "possibly carcinogenic to humans". The first is that the studies involved 2G and 3G signals, not the current generation 4G or upcoming 5G signals, so any risk specific to LTE will not have been noted.

The authors caution that while much more research is needed to find out whether or not the ways that average people use cell phones could raise cancer risks, the findings highlight an "area of concern".

"We don't have any idea really", Bucher said. Interestingly, the babies developed to be normal sized and did not show any other developmental defects.

EWG has been at the forefront of public interest organizations raising concerns about cellphone use and cancer.

Cell phone radiation could pose a risk of certain cancers to some, the preliminary findings of two new major studies from the National Institutes Health suggest.

Two new studies conducted by the National Toxicology Program, or NTP, exposed rodents to radiofrequency radiation levels equal to or higher than those emitted during regular cellphone use. The study, nominated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), has been called the most comprehensive assessment of RFR exposure in rodents to date.

"Even with frequent daily use by the vast majority of adults, we have not seen an increase in events like brain tumours", he said in a statement. "In the meantime, I want to underscore that based on our ongoing evaluation of this issue and taking into account all available scientific evidence we have received, we have not found sufficient evidence that there are adverse health effects in humans caused by exposures at or under the current radiofrequency energy exposure limits".

The results have "given us the confidence that the current safety limits for cellphone radiation remain acceptable for protecting the public health", said Dr. Jeffrey Shuren, director of the FDA's Center for Devices and Radiological Health.
