Major study linked cell phones to cancer in rats

"Males only"

Mobile-Phone Link to Cancer Stirred Up by Report on Rat Study

Research in rats is re-igniting the long-running debate over whether mobile-phone use can cause cancer.
Two types of tumors -- one in the brain, one in the heart -- were spotted in some male rats exposed to radiofrequency radiation at levels used by the U.S. telecommunications industry, according to a 74-page report on partial findings from the U.S. government-funded study. The study follows a flurry of reports published in 2011 that confused more than clarified the cancer risk faced by the world’s billions of mobile-phone users.
“These findings appear to support the International Agency for Research on Cancer conclusions regarding the possible carcinogenic potential of radiofrequency radiation,” the researchers wrote in the report. “Given the widespread global usage of mobile communications among users of all ages, even a very small increase in the incidence of disease resulting from exposure to RFR could have broad implications for public health.”
The results from the National Toxicology Program study weren’t formally peer-reviewed and published by a scientific journal. Instead, they were posted on a website that allows researchers to share raw and unvetted material.
Males Only
The low incidence of cancer observed in the rats in the U.S. government study were likely the result of whole-body exposure to the radiation, and was similar to tumors seen in some studies of mobile-phone use, the researchers said. They had higher confidence in the link between the radiation and the heart tumors. Cancer only appeared in male rats, with no significant effects seen in females.
The rats exposed to radiation also lived longer than those who weren’t, an unexpected finding that suggests cancer may have developed simply because those rats were older. The research will be completed in the second half of next year, with draft reports available for review and comment by the end of 2017.
“The results do not appear consistent with the cancer rates within the human population, nor with the majority of other experimental research, even at the very high exposure levels, which are many times higher than humans are exposed to,” Rodney Croft, director of the Australian Centre for Electromagnetic Bioeffects Research, said in an e-mailed statement on Friday.
Dry Cleaning
The International Agency for Research on Cancer, part of the World Health Organization, said in 2011 that the devices may cause brain cancer in humans, citing a review of studies. The agency classified mobile phones as “possibly” cancer-causing -- the same category as coffee, ginkgo biloba extract, dry cleaning and engine exhaust.
A month later, the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection’s committee on epidemiology undermined those findings. After reviewing studies from several countries, the commission said that using the technology may not increase the risk of tumors.
A few months later, a Danish study in people found mobile phones don’t pose additional danger. The research is the largest of its type and used data that were already available, instead of retrospectively interviewing phone subscribers whose recall could be selective or unreliable.
The Federal Communications Commission said it was aware of the National Toxicology Program’s ongoing research on radiofrequency radiation levels.
“We will continue to follow all recommendations from federal health and safety experts including whether the FCC should modify its current policies and RF exposure limits,” said Neil Grace, an FCC spokesman. “Scientific evidence always informs FCC rules on this matter.”

Good for you for being proactive. Save Willard!

disbeliever - I am not a scientist, but I don't see how anyone can question all of the shit that passes through our bodies daily can't cause issues.

I think that's exactly what scientists do.

When my phone can give me cancer from OGing and looking at porn, let me know. No one makes calls anymore. Phone Post 3.0

"Cancer only appeared in male rats, with no significant effects seen in females.

So basically cell phones give us special cancer that makes us live longer lol.

 

It's hilarious how these articles just ignore the study and put whatever fucking headline they think will get the most views. 

So we fucked ? Phone Post 3.0

Yeah it's as if they think we'll read the articles. lmao

Agree so much with this.


Hell last I heard Europe doesn't allow cell phones or Wifi to be used in elementary school because scientists felt not enough research had been performed yet on wireless signals Phone Post 3.0

It's because the next time a reporter correctly interprets a study will be the first time. Add in the bias that many researchers have going in (which can skew their conclusions), and you have shitty reporting/writing on the science conducted. Phone Post 3.0

They're also not saying the cancer made the rats live longer. They're saying getting cancer may simply be a consequence of getting old - ergo, if something lives longer, it has a greater risk of getting cancer. Phone Post 3.0

Everything on this earth is set up to kill us.

The Suns radiation is both helpful and toxic to us.

The water we drink refreshes yet has minute concentrations of minerals and compounds, some that help us and kill us slowly.

The food we eat is good for our bodies yet laced with roundup and other pesticides.

The air we breathe is contaminated with arsenic and other carcinogens. The oxygen that gives us life also corrodes us from within and feeds cancer cells.

Every so often we get a nice gamma ray burst from outer space that is the equivalent of 10-100 X-rays.

So unless you want to live in a cave and breathe filtered tri-mix and eating nothing but the goop they serve on the matrix, then why worry? Living is a toxic endeavor. Phone Post 3.0

Yes you're right.

But if you decide to draw the conclusion that the cell phones gave them cancer then you also should draw the conclusion that the cell phones made them live longer as well.

Obviously that's not the case but just saying.

I love it when people post articles like these.


It shows how many of you lack basic science education fundamentals.

Duh

Oh shut the fuck up dude. Seriously.

Fucking arrogant fuck.

People post articles because they are interesting, faggot. Phone Post 3.0

I'm the original article u read this morning also pointed out that multiple other retrospective studies have been done that did NOT demonstrate a statistically significant increase in gliomas with cell use.
The quality of the studies should be examined and hopefully a better consensus is made when weighing any and all evidence. Phone Post 3.0
