Everything wireless is tested on a plastic head, designed by engineers back in 1996. They put salty fluid in it, set their timer for 6 minutes. And if in that 6 minutes the temperature hasn’t risen more than 2 degrees, they declare the product safe for you and for me…who don’t have plastic heads. We don’t have plastic heads.
The National Toxicology Program published a 25 million dollar study which is one of the largest and most comprehensive studies on cell phone radiation and cancer in the US. In the study the rats exposed to cell phone radiation developed two types of cancers, glioma, a brain tumor, and schwannoma, a tumor in the heart.
The summary includes, “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.”
Mother Jones called it a “game-changing study”, and stated “It’s the moment we’ve all been dreading.”
The Wall Street Journal reported, “A major U.S. government study on rats has found a link between cellphones and cancer, an explosive finding in the long-running debate about whether mobile phones cause health effects.”
