What did the studies find?
NTP studies found that exposure to high levels of RFR, like that used in 2G and 3G cell phones, was associated with:
• Clear evidence of tumors in the hearts of male rats.
The tumors were malignant schwannomas.
• Some evidence of tumors in the brains of male rats.
The tumors were malignant gliomas.
• Some evidence of tumors in the adrenal glands of male rats.
The tumors were pheochromocytomas.
For female rats, and male and female mice, it was unclear, also known as equivocal, whether cancers observed in the studies were associated with exposure to RFR.
The conclusions were based on the NTP four categories of evidence that a substance may cause cancer.
• Clear evidence (highest)
• Some evidence
• Equivocal evidence
• No evidence (lowest)
