Leading Research on Cell Phones and Brain Tumors


1. In 2011 the World Health Organization/International Agency for Research on Cancer classified radiofrequency electromagnetic fields as possibly carcinogenic to humans based on an increased risk of gliomas, a malignant type of brain cancer, associated with wireless phone use.

2. The $30 million US NTP study found "clear evidence" that cell phone radiation causes cancer with this link. Dr. Ron Melnick, the designer of the study review of the findings states:  

"In conclusion, animal studies and mechanistic studies on RFR that have been published since 2011 clearly show that the evidence on the carcinogenicity of RFR is much stronger than it was at the time of the IARC evaluation. If the recent animal and mechanistic findings had been available in 2011, it is likely that RFR would have been classified as a probable human carcinogen."  Click to read full article.

3. The Ramazzini Institute replicated the US NTP study with the exact findings:


Conclusions: The RI findings on far field exposure to RFR are consistent with and reinforce the results of the NTP study on near field exposure, as both reported an increase in the incidence of tumors of the brain and heart in RFR-exposed Sprague-Dawley rats. These tumors are of the same histotype of those observed in some epidemiological studies on cell phone users. These experimental studies provide sufficient evidence to call for the re-evaluation of IARC conclusions regarding the carcinogenic potential of RFR in humans. Click to read full article.
