National Toxicology Programm LogoHet National Toxicology Program (NTP) is een 25 miljoen dollar kostend onderzoek naar de effecten van EMV (afkomstig van draadloze communicatie apparatuur).

In een presentatie van een deel van dit onderzoek wordt aangegeven dat er een statistisch significante verhoging van DNA-schade wordt aangetoond bij ratten en muizen die worden blootgesteld aan GSM- of CDMA- straling.



Scientists from the National Toxicology Program presented their data on the genotoxicity of cell phone radiation in rats and mice at the annual meeting of the Environmental Mutagenesis and Genomics Society held in Raleigh, North Carolina from September 9-13, 2017.

Results -- DNA damage was significantly increased in:

- In the frontal cortex of male mice from CDMA and GSM cell phone radiation,
- In peripheral leukocytes of female mice from CDMA only, and
- In the hippocampus of male rats from CDMA only.

There were no significant increases in micronucleated red blood cells in rats or mice.

The authors concluded that, "exposure to RFR [radio frequency radiation] has the potential to induce measurable DNA damage under certain exposure conditions."

Na de eerder gepubliceerde deelonderzoeken van dit NTP-onderzoek werden effecten gevonden als:

- Increased incidences of glioma (a rare, aggressive and highly malignant brain cancer) as well as schwannoma (a rare tumor of the nerve sheath) of the heart were found in both sexes of rats, but reached statistical significance only in males.

- Increased incidences of rare, proliferative changes in glial cells of the brain and in Schwann cells (nerve sheath) in the heart of both sexes of rats, while not a single unexposed control animal developed these precancerous changes.

- Results from this study clearly show that biological impacts occur at non-thermal exposures like those that take place from cell phones today.



Het complete NTP-onderzoek wordt naar verwachting begin 2018 gepubliceerd.
