High Cellphone Radiation Causes Tumors and DNA Damage in Rodents

High cellphone radiation causes tumors, lower body weight and DNA damage in male rodents, according to the recent research report by the US National Toxicology Program (NTP).

National Institutes of Health has finally disclosed the most awaited result of the research on physical impacts of high radio frequency radiation of cellphones on animals. The report shows that such high radiations could trigger a risk of tumors as well as tissue damage, with no clear ill effects on humans and others health.

Senior scientist John Bucher researching since 10 years on the study said that, “At this point we don’t feel that we understand enough about the results to place a huge degree of confidence in the findings. I have not changed the way I use a cellphone, no. The patterns of damage to brain in tissues in these animals are not particularly consistent with tumor outcomes.”


During the research, male rats were exposed to a great level of potentially high radio frequency radiations discharged by cellphones, who later diagnosed with tumors in tissues nearby their hearts. Since the female rats exposed to the same condition didn’t found with tumors, as reported in the draft study conducted by the US National Toxicology Program of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences.

Director of Center for Devices and Radiological Health at the FDA, Jeffrey Shuren stated that, “Even with frequent daily use by the vast majority of adults, we have not seen an increase in events like brain tumors. Based on this current information, we believe the current safety limits for cellphones are acceptable for protecting the public health.”
