The U.S Food and Drug Administration recently found that the radiation from cell phones lead to male rats developing heart tumors. The rats developed cancerous heart, brain and adrenal gland cancerous tumors from these mobile phones.

The study tested radio frequency radiation (RFR) emissions on mobile devices. They wanted to find out the potential health risks of long term exposure of cell phone radiation that is inside these mobile devices. Rats were exposed to cellular service that were similar to 2G or 3G services. The study noted:

“We studied the effects of nearly lifetime exposures to two different types, or modulations, of RFR (GSM and CDMA) used in cellular telephone networks in the United States in male and female rats and mice to identify potential toxicity or cancer-related hazards.”

They also found:

        “In the heart of male rats, exposure to RFR for 2 years resulted in a statistically significant positive trend in the incidences of cardiac schwannoma for both GSM and CDMA modulations. The incidence at 6 W/kg for CDMA was statistically significantly increased compared to sham controls. Additionally, cardiac Schwann cell hyperplasia occurred in groups of male rats exposed to both GSM- and CDMA-modulated cell phone RFR. These hyperplastic lesions are relevant to the evaluation of neoplasms because Schwann cell hyperplasia in the heart may progress to cardiac schwannoma (MacKenzie and Alison, 1990; Berridge et al., 2016).”

The study concluded with animals that had long exposure to the radiation found in these mobile devices developed heart tumors. Tumors found on the brain were also found related to the exposure from these cell phones.
