National Toxicology Program Finds Cell Phone Radiation Causes Cancer

This month the National Toxicology Program (NTP) of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) updated the cell phone information page on its website and the fact sheet which summarizes the NTP cell phone radiation study. See below for a summary of the study and its findings.

The NTP’s website indicates that the NIEHS has warned its “federal regulatory partners” (i.e., the Federal Communications Commission and the Food and Drug Administration) that the NTP’s research found that cell phone radiation caused cancer in male rats to enable these agencies to provide the latest guidance to the public about safe ways to use cell phones and other radiofrequency radiation-emitting devices. 

Following is some of the language which now appears on the NTP website.

The updated NTP fact sheet includes the following two graphics.

Two-year oncogenicity evaluations of cell phone radiofrequency radiation in Sprague-Dawley rats and B6C3F1 mice

McCormick D. Two-year oncogenicity evaluations of cell phone radiofrequency radiation in Sprague-Dawley rats and B6C3F1 mice. Toxicology Letters. 280 (Suppl. 1): S31. Oct 20, 2017. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.toxlet.2017.07.07

Epidemiology data concerning possible health effects of exposure to radiofrequency fields (RF) are conflicting. For this reason, well-designed and controlled studies in predictive laboratory animal models provide the best prospective opportunity to identify effects of RF exposure that may translate into human health hazards. 

The U.S. National Toxicology Program supported a program in our laboratory to identify and characterize effects of acute, subchronic, and chronic exposure to non-thermal levels of RF in Sprague-Dawley rats and B6C3F1 mice.

Five-day pilot studies were performed to identify the maximum Specific Absorption Ratios (SARs) to which juvenile, adult, and pregnant rodents can be exposed without increasing body temperature by >1.0 °C. 

Subsequent subchronic (ten-week) toxicity studies failed to identify any toxicologically significant effects of non-thermal RF on survival, body weight, clinical signs, hematology, or gross or microscopic pathology.

Two-year studies were performed to determine if exposure to non-thermal levels of RF increases the incidence of neoplasia in any site. Male rats exposed to RF demonstrated significantly increased incidences of glioma (brain) and schwannoma (heart); these increases were not seen in female rats or in either sex of mice.

Gliomas and schwannomas have been identified in some epidemiology studies as possible RF-induced neoplasms. Considering (a) the conflicting results of RF epidemiology studies and (b) the lack of generally accepted biophysical or molecular mechanisms through which RF could induce or promote neoplasia, data from animal bioassays will play a central role in “weight-of-the-evidence” assessments of the possible health effects of RF exposure.

Scientists from the National Toxicology Program presented their data on the genotoxicity of cell phone radiation in rats and mice at the annual meeting of the Environmental Mutagenesis and Genomics Society held in Raleigh, North Carolina from September 9-13, 2017.

Male and female rats and mice were exposed to 2G cell phone radiation, either CDMA or GSM, for 18 hours per day in 10 minute intervals. The rats were exposed to cell phone radiation at 1.5, 3, or 6 W/kg specific absorption rate (SAR) for 19 weeks from gestation day 5. The mice were exposed to radiation at 2.5, 5, or 10 W/kg SAR for 13 weeks from postnatal day 5.

DNA damage was assessed in three brain regions, in liver cells and in blood leukocytes using the comet assay. Chromosomal damage was assessed in peripheral blood erythrocytes using the micronucleus assay.

DNA damage was significantly increased:

  • in the frontal cortex of male mice from either CDMA or GSM cell phone radiation exposure, 
  • in peripheral leukocytes of female mice from CDMA exposure, and
  • in the hippocampus of male rats from CDMA exposure.

There were no significant increases in micronucleated red blood cells in rats or mice. 

The authors concluded that, “exposure to RFR [radio frequency radiation] has the potential to induce measurable DNA damage under certain exposure conditions.”

The NTP is scheduled to publish a complete report about its cell phone radiation studies in early 2018. The FDA called for this research in 1999.

Here is the abstract for this presentation.

technology is now jeopardizing the health of our trees and other plants. “Tree damage in the vicinity of mobile phone base stations” by Waldmann-Selsam and Egar in 2013, documented suspected RF radiation related tree damage and RF radiation readings over a period of six years.”

It found significantly higher RF radiation readings by damaged trees as compared to undamaged trees. Sometimes damaged areas and undamaged areas were on the same tree, in which case RF radiation levels were found to be higher near the damaged areas.

Because trees are unable to move, differences in RF radiation levels from fixed sources like cell towers can result in very different RF radiation exposure micro-environments in different parts of the same tree or bush.

Governments and Industry world wide are pushing the 5G technology agenda. 5G stands for 5th generation and is the Radio Frequency/ElectroMagnetic Waves that have already been shown to be harmful to our health. This has been shown in over 10.000 studies.

Brain cancers and other life threatening illness,s are 3/4 times higher around cell towers.

This new technology will go from using 1 to 4GHZ to using 24-90+ GHZ.
That is equivalent to 90 Billion Electromagnetic waves hitting the body every second.

Whereas we are now already suffering the effects of waves that are 2 and a half to 3 feet, the new waves will be an inch to half an inch and cell towers will be smaller.

Near everyones homes and at least one every 200 to 300 metres apart. Even inside our homes with the Internet of Things.
There has been no testing of the safety of these pulsed waves and those Govt agencies who are deciding the safety standards are in bed with the companies pushing the agenda.
According to FCC who set the standards, Non thermal radiation is not a danger, yet 10,000 studies from Cellular Biologists exist to prove the opposite.
I think we owe it to our families to put a stop to these dangerous technologies before it is too late.
Proper Independent and peer reviewed studies need to be undertaken.
Questions need to be asked.
Specifically, ” Do you have any legislation relating to Consumer safety that specifically mentions Non-Thermal or Biological affects?”
If those in Power refuse to accept that 2,3, and 4G already comes with significant dangers, then imagine the future for mankind with this new untested technology.


Every area needs to be calling locally, for a halt to these dangerous new wavelengths.
People in every area need to take responsibility and a National network established.
Our Governments are compromised with Industry, Our Agencies are also compromised by Industry, let us not compromise our health and the health of our children.
