In May 2016, after a considerable delay, first results were published of a study by the U.S. National Toxicology Program (NTP) on the effects of long-term exposure of rats to mobile phone radiation. They confirmed what the mobile phone industry and its mercenaries in science have disputed as preposterous to reason until today: that a carcinogenic potential is inherent to mobile phone radiation. The authors of the NTP study openly admit that they themselves were surprised by this outcome of their research on mobile phone radiation.

In the NTP study rats were exposed – starting in the uterus of the pregnant animals and after birth for two years – to either CDMA or GMS mobile phone radiation that was common in the United States 17 years ago when the study was planned. Exposure with SAR values of 0.0, 1.5, 3.0, and 6.0 W/kg was carried out in cycles of 10 minutes on and 10 minutes off. During their 18-hours stay in the exposure cages – 9 hours under radiation – the animals could freely move around. After evaluating the study, the authors claimed that malignant glioma in the brain and benign schwannomas in the heart could only be detected in a small percentage of the male rats.

On June 8, 2016, during the BioEM2016 in Ghent, Belgium, the results of the NTP study were presented.
