The National Toxicology Program has been conducting experiments in rats and mice on potential health hazards from cell phone radiofrequency radiation. NTP released a report on some important study findings on May 27, 2016.
The report, “Report of Partial Findings from the National Toxicology Program Carcinogenesis Studies of Cell Phone Radiofrequency Radiation in Hsd: Sprague Dawley SD Rats (Whole Body Exposure),” is available at http://dx.doi.org/10.1101/055699.
The findings in this report were reviewed by expert peer reviewers selected by NTP and the National Institutes of Health. These reviews and responses to comments are included as appendices to this report, and revisions to the current document have incorporated and addressed these comments.
Here are some key points about the cell phone study:
