Prolonged mobile usage does cause cancer says new research
Researchers from the US National Toxicology Programme who had undertaken a major study to find potential dangers of mobile phone radiation in rats have disclosed that there is a link between mobile phone use and cancer. The peer-reviewed study found rats exposed to the type of radio waves emitted by mobile phones were more likely to develop tumours in their brains and hearts.
“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 radiofrequency radiation could have broad implications for public health,” said the authors of the study in a report.
The two-year trial involved more than 2,500 rats and each received carefully controlled doses of radiation for nine hours a day, every day for two years. Following this exposure, they found ‘low incidences’ of two types of tumours in rats in both the brain and the heart when exposed to the radiation.
