Officiele eindpublicatie van het NTP-onderzoek

National Toxicology Programm LogoOp 1 november 2018 zijn nu officieel de eindresultaten gepubliceerd van het National Toxicology Program (NTP).

"The National Toxicology Program (NTP) concluded there is clear evidence that male rats exposed to high levels of radio frequency radiation (RFR) like that used in 2G and 3G cell phones developed cancerous heart tumors, according to final reports"





Enkele quotes uit dit rapport:



"There was also some evidence of tumors in the brain and adrenal gland of exposed male rats. For female rats, and male and female mice, the evidence was equivocal as to whether cancers observed were associated with exposure to RFR. The final reports represent the consensus of NTP and a panel of external scientific experts who reviewed the studies in March after draft reports were issued in February."


“We believe that the link between radio frequency radiation and tumors in male rats is real, and the external experts agreed,” said Bucher."



".... the studies question the long-held assumption that radio frequency radiation is of no concern as long as the energy level is low and does not significantly heat the tissues"





What did the studies find?

NTP studies found that exposure to high levels of RFR, like that used in 2G and 3G cell phones, was associated with:

Clear evidence of tumors in the hearts of male rats.
   The tumors were malignant schwannomas.

Some evidence of tumors in the brains of male rats.
  The tumors were malignant gliomas.

Some evidence of tumors in the adrenal glands of male rats.
   The tumors were pheochromocytomas.

For female rats, and male and female mice, it was unclear, also known as equivocal, whether cancers observed in the studies were associated with exposure to RFR.

The conclusions were based on the NTP four categories of evidence that a substance may cause cancer.

• Clear evidence (highest)

• Some evidence

• Equivocal evidence

• No evidence (lowest)
