There are many unanswered questions in regards to this US FDA mandated study but as parents, this data is enough for us to be concerned and proactive about restricting EMF device usage for our children. Panel 2 voted to recommend the conclusion that some evidence of carcinogenic activity in rats was based on incidences of malignant glioma in the brain.
The following information was is directly taken from the National Toxicology Program(NTP) website
- NTP reported low incidences of tumors in the brains and hearts of male rats, but not in female rats, in these partial findings.
- For the studies, rats were exposed to 2G and 3G frequencies and modulations still used in voice calls and texting in the United States. Specifically, the rats were exposed for 10-minute on, 10-minute off increments, totaling just over 9 hours a day from before birth through 2 years of age.
- These are the largest, most complex studies ever conducted by NTP.
- The U.S. Food and Drug Administration nominated cell phone radiofrequency radiation for NTP study.
- NTP has shared these findings with its federal regulatory partners so they have the latest information.”

The first of its kind, a new “Right To Know” law was passed in Berkeley, CA to warn people of the potential health risks including increased brain tumor risks in children.

The following is an excerpt from an article published by The News & Observer:
“Can your cellphone cause cancer? Scientists find definitive link in study of rats.”
“It should most likely lead to a reduction in exposure limits,” said Ronald Melnick, the National Toxicology Program scientist who designed the study before he retired nine years ago. “This matters a lot because the agencies that will receive this data will make public health decisions based on this information.”
Melnick said the health risks acknowledged Wednesday could compel public officials and telecom leaders “not to promote the use of some of these radio-frequency emitting devices for kids.”
