Biologists at the US Institutes of Health have found evidence of cancer development when using a mobile phone in 2G and 3G mode.
According to recent research by US biologists from the National Toxicology Program, in mice exposed to constant cell phone irradiation, cancerous tumors develop more often. They published their findings on the official website of the National Toxicology Program.
John Bucher and his colleagues conducted a series of experiments on several groups of nearly 200 rodents predisposed to oncological diseases. The mice lived in a cage that took the operating principle of the antenna of a laptop. At the same time, some of the rodents were exposed to irradiation well before birth, when they were still in their mother's womb, while in the other group they were only exposed to age. adult.
In addition, scientists divided the rodents into several groups that received different doses of radiation, from the maximum allowable radio frequency level for laptops to a level that exceeded this threshold by three to four times. Some of the rodents lived in such conditions for one month, and the rest for nearly two years.
According to John Bucher and his colleagues, the irradiation of mice by waves at a frequency of 900 and 1900 megahertz clearly showed that these forms of radiation, coded in a mobile format, were carcinogenic. As a result of this exposure to radiation, a considerable amount of tumors have been recorded in rodent bodies, including cancers of the heart, brain and liver.
On the other hand, rodents lived on average longer when exposed to irradiation than under normal conditions, and the number of tumors did not change significantly with increasing radiation dose. This particularly happened with exposure to 3G.
Studies on the possible links between cancers and mobile phones are continuing and are not alike. John Bucher and his colleagues plan to carry out a series of experiments to analyze the rate of accumulation of mutations in rodent DNA and how often other forms of cancer appear.
