Questions and Answers on the New Study Linking Cellphones and Cancer in Rats

A new study has recently been released by the National Toxicology Program has shown that rats who have been exposed to radiation from cell phones over the course of two years are 5% more likely to develop cancer, when compared to a control group. While these numbers might seem unsettling, scientists across the country say these numbers cannot be trusted, since the radiation given off by cell phones is far smaller than other sources of radiation we come into contact with from day to day, including radiation from the sun. They also point to data indicating that cancer rates have remained steady from 1990 to present day, while the popularity of the cell phone has exploded. Nonetheless, since even a 5% increase in cancer frequency can have a huge impact on the American population because of the great popularity of mobile phones, the National Toxicology Program’s findings cannot be ignored completely.
