Rare cancers of the heart and brain are on the rise in animals exposed to cell phone radiation found a long-awaited multi-million dollar two-year study.
Christopher Portier, former Director of the US National Toxicology Program (NTP) noted, "This is the best-designed animal study ever conducted on this topic."
‘Radiation emitted from cell phones and other wireless devices create cellular-level changes that can cause.’
AdvertisementRon Melnick, who led the original NTP study design team, confirmed information leaked by unnamed sources at the National Institute of Health familiar with the study, "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."
"This is extremely powerful evidence," stated Robert Morris MD PhD, Environmental Health Trust (EHT) Senior Medical Advisor. "For more than two decades, many have dismissed cancer risks from cell phones because the conventional understanding of the effect of microwaves would suggest there is no mechanism for this to occur. That argument is officially dead."
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." Added EHT President Devra Davis PhD MPH, "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."
Melnick said, "These data redefine the cell phone radiation controversy. This is a major public health concern."
