Study Title:

NTP Study on Cancer and Cell Phones 2016 and 2018

Study Abstract

Clear Evidence of Carcinogenicity
The National Toxicology Program (NTP) Chronic Carcinogenicity Studies of Cell Phone Radiofrequency Radiation are the most comprehensive, carefully done research performed to date on the long term effects of radio frequency radiation from wireless devices such as cell phones. This 10 year $25 million dollar study by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences was completed and peer reviewed March 26-28, 2018 in North Carolina. The research has demonstrated an increase in tumors of the heart and brain, increases in other organ tumors, DNA damage in rodents exposed to cell phone radiation, cardiomyopathy in some groups and adverse perinatal effects in some groups. Positive results were found for cardiac tumors (schwannomas), malignant gliomas of the brain and tumors of the adrenal gland.

Partial results on rat studies were released in May 2016 while the final results discussing effects on mice were released February 2018. Technical report abstracts can be found here TR-595 (Rat) and TR-596 (Mice). These studies support an abundance of other research showing a carcinogenic effect of cell phone and wireless radiation from cell towers and the multitude of wireless devices we are exposed to, including cell phones, cordless phones, Wi-Fi and Smart Meters. A Peer Review meeting by an expert panel of the NTP Draft Technical Reports was held March 26-28, 2018 at Research Triangle Park, North Carolina. Actions from the Peer Review are here. Other NTP Meeting details and webcast are here. Below are some discussions of the science and results.
