NTP Scientists Endorse Precaution
First Federal Officials To Take a Stand on Cell Phone Safety
Earlier this week an Italian court of appeals in Turin affirmed a decision to compensate a man who charged that he had developed a tumor after using a mobile phone. In its write-up, the U.K. Guardian
quoted the Italian health minister saying that the court had made a mistake because there is no proof to support such a link.
Huh? Once again the findings of the $30 million animal study by the U.S. National Toxicology Program showing “clear evidence” of a cancer risk are being ignored —by the Italian minister and the Guardian reporter. The NTP study may not constitute “proof,” but it shows that simple denial cannot be justified.
Part of the problem has been with the NTP scientists themselves. They have shown ambivalence about their own findings, allowing others to make up their own narratives.
That has now changed.
NTP scientists have revealed that they are taking precautions to minimize their radiation exposures from cell phones.
