Cell Phone Radiation Study Confirms Cancer Risk

May 31, 2016

Cell Phone Radiation Study Confirms Cancer Risk Orebro University, Sweden May 31, 2016 The National Toxicology Program under the National Institutes of Health has completed the largest-ever animal study on cell phone radiation and cancer.  The results confirm that cell phone radiation exposure levels within the currently allowable safety limits are the "likely cause" of brain and heart cancers in these animals, according to Dr. John Bucher, Associate Director of the NTP.  One in twelve (12) male rats developed either malignant cancer (brain and rare heart tumors) or pre-cancerous lesions [...]

Do We Know Enough to Take Action?

November 15, 2012

There is more evidence than we need. The last five years worth of new scientific studies tell us the situation is much worse than in 2007 and yet people around the world have so much more daily exposure than even five years ago. Exposures are linked to a variety of adverse health outcomes that may have significant public health consequences. When added across billions of people world-wide, no argument for the status quo can be persuasive now. In twenty-one technical chapters of this 2012 update, the contributing authors discuss the [...]
