... in rats. Let me explain.
I’m referring to the $25M study performed by the US National Toxicology Program (NTP).
It’s the world's largest, most carefully done study on cell phone radiation
It studied the effects of exposing rats and mice to cell phone radiation, equivalent to what a human would be exposed to by talking for just 30 minutes a day, for 36 years.
What did they find?
The rats exposed to radiation were found to have higher rates of cancer - none of the unexposed control rats developed either type of tumor (1).
The irony is, the reason why John Bucher, the senior manager of the NTP (2) study, wanted his agency to run the study, was to prove once and for all that cell phones do not cause cancer.
Dr. George Carlo
The first major study on cell phone safety, the Wireless Technology Research program, was industry funded and headed by Dr. George Carlo.
His job was to prove once and for all that cell phones were safe.
Big mistake, picking Dr. Carlo.
After 7 years of research he concluded that cell phones were detrimental to human health.
Dr. Carlo was immediately removed from the program and the public spin machine was put into action to smooth out any damage that his announcements might have made.
A study published in 1975 by Allan Frey, a Stanford University biophysicist/ neuroscientist demonstrated that cell phone radiation can open up the blood- brain barrier – the BBB is what protects the brain from toxins.
The results of Dr. Frey’s research indicated that cell phone radiation exposures could have possibly lethal consequences.
Dr. Frey explains, “after my work appeared and others supported some of it, effectively everything in the US on these topics was shut down.” (3)
Om P. Gandhi
Professor Om Gandhi is a researcher who worked with the cell phone industry in the 1990s to develop the “SAR” (specific absorption rate) testing that all cell phones need to go undergo before being sold.
Gandhi realized that children were far more vulnerable to cell phone radiation exposures. How right he was, more recent studies have confirmed this. (4)
Gandhi started to speak out. He was politely informed that, “if he did not discontinue his research on children his funding would be cut off”.
So, unfortunately the debate is not over.
Cell phones emit microwave radio-frequency radiation.
This radiation has the ability to penetrate our bodies.
There is strong evidence, decades of multiple peer reviewed studies, to indicate that cell phones cause cancer and other diseases.
And yet our governments do virtually nothing to protect us from these dangers.
Why do our governments do virtually nothing to protect us?
The Telecoms market is worth many hundreds of billions of dollars.
This phenomenal amount of money confers a phenomenal amount of power.
Cell phone companies are like any other company.
Their number one objective is to make a profit for their stakeholders.
Are they interested in producing safe phones?
Because they are interested in giving consumers what they want…to make more money.
Consumers (most of them) aren’t interested in safe cell phones.
Where does this leave you?
It means if you want to safeguard your health you have to take action.
