National Toxicology Program: Not the First Government Study to Find Wireless Radiation Can Cause Cancer in Lab Rats
The National Toxicology Program's recent study is not the first randomized controlled trial to find that exposure to non-thermal levels of microwave radiation can cause cancer in male rats.
A U.S. Air Force study conducted from 1980 to 1982 which was documented in a series of nine technical reports and later published in the peer-reviewed journal, Bioelectromagnetics, found that 18% of 100 male rats exposed to low-intensity microwave radiation for two years developed cancer as compared to only 5% of 100 rats in the sham-exposed control group. The relative risk of developing cancer in the wireless radiation exposure group was 4.46 (p = .005).
When will the federal government fund the research needed to determine the types and amounts of exposure to cellphone and other wireless radiation that are safe?
