Cell phone radiation study seeks answers

Cell phone radiation study seeks answers has led to a probable link to cancer. This was propagated in 1990’s and still remains a puzzle. Certain studies have not been able to establish a link between radio frequency from cell phones and specific health issues such as rise in the risks of tumors, while others suggest the opposite.


Two much awaited reports released Friday by the US Department of Health and Human Services’ National Toxicology Program appended to cell phone dilemma. The all-inclusive research reports particularly finds from two enormous animal studies, one in rats and other in mice. It connects potent levels of cell phone radiation to some proof of toxin movement in male rats, involving an infrequent type of tumor called a schwannoma in their hearts. Female rats were not privy to these findings.

Likewise no important discoveries emanated in the mouse study. The studies were a part of the National Toxicology Program’s 10-year, $25 million judgment of radiation exhibit and probable health effects.  John Bucher, a senior scientist at the National Toxicology Program and one of the authors of the reports said that the most interesting aspect of our findings were that the dangerous schwannomas, even though they took place in the heart and not the head of the animals.

He further said that these exploratory animal researches approximate to comprehend if exposures to radio-frequency radiation constitute a risk to human health. He added that research is continuing at the National Toxicology Program to inspect alterations on the molecular level in tissue specimen in the rodents.
