According to an article posted on Mashable, a recent study has determined a link between cell phone radiation and the development of tumors in male rats. The federally-funded study has yet to be published in its entirety, but has already offered some insight:
- The study was released by the National Toxicology Program
- Malignant gliomas and schwannomas were noted as two of the types of tumors associated with cell phone radiation.
- The development and the growth of these tumors were slight but are linked to increases in cell phone radiation exposure.
These findings support the need for manufacturers to find a way to limit exposure to harmful cell phone radiation. Depending on the conclusions that a governing body such as the FCC might draw, it may require deeper investigations when performing SAR testing or reduce SAR limits. The latter will put the manufacturers in a position where they will have to develop new technologies to reduce transmitted power while keeping satisfactory signal quality.
